    This is how you should get to it,

    When the MENU button is pressed, the On Screen Display (OSD)

    appears on the PICTURE adjustment page.

    Press the button to display the SETUP

    page.

    Press the ▼ button to highlight Parental,

    and then press the button.



    When you are trying to use the PIP, what are the 2 sources you are trying to put on the screen?

You have to be in 'TV' mode to access the parental settings option. Not sure why. When it asks for the code it's 0000

Go through your owner's manual and check for the compatibility list. It will give you a scale of what could be use with what. If you don't have owner's manual, you can download it at vizio.com under support and download.

SOURCE: vizio sv420xvt pip

You have to go into the "Parental" settings and change the "Rating Enable" setting to off. Default password is 0000. The PIP will not work if your second source is fed into one of the AV inputs. It must be a composite or digital input. You should see the PIP menus once you change the Parental setting even if there is no other source turned on. This info is not in the book - had to call tech support.

To get the pip to work you will need another video source from a vcr/dvd/blue ray hooked up to a video or comp. input in order to get the pip to work.

When you hit the power button from the console, hod it until it beeps at you twice and it will reset the video settings. I read this on a post from gamespot. I hope it works.

LG 42 inch Plasma Picture in Picture with SKY satellite service


PIP only works off two seperate signals, eg you cannot watch 2 sky channels at a time, you can watch sky tv and then your analogue channel using PIP or freeview, you can then swap which is to be viewed as a large picture and which is to be viewed as the smaller picture or half and half.
