You are referring to a picture-in-picture function on hour TV. It is usually done by a button on your remote control marked PIP - picture-in-picture. If your TV doesn't have this function you can get it by using your SET-TOP BOX, which supplied by your TV cable company. All modern remote controls fro those boxes have that ability. In this case you will be able to watch two channels at the same time, switching them around and control them the way you want.
Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.
Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.
Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.
If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.
If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.
try looking under your TV's menu, find the pip or split option and set them up, then on your remote, you should have a pip/split button..see if you can now watch tv with pip or split. If you need more help please be more specific about what the tv is doing when you push those buttons on the remote etc.
Pls verify if your particular model/versions has a PIP feature. To my understanding, the 2nd Antenna/Cable IN goes to a 2nd tuner that is primarily used for the PIP (picture in picture) mode. This mode would allow you to watch simultaneously 2 different TV channels.
Pls post back. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
My guess is SURF might let you scan through the channels like a scan button on a car radio. PIP stands for picture in picture and may require a second device(vcr etc.) with a seperate tuner to use. SWAP allows you to swap pictures when useing PIP. Freeze probably will allow you to freeze the current picture on the screen.
I was told that in order to view 2 different channels at the same time u have to subscribe to SKYCable and use the digital input instead of the antenna input and the antenna input you will have to use the regular antenna since there is only one tuner in the TV
