Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV
Since I have owner this TV it has never had the picture in picture operation working. I waas told samsung has a resolution to this but cannot find out what it is or how it can be done. Supposedly you are to hook up some new cable configuratiuon on the back of the TV. Do you know? Also, the hook up for the dvd player does not seem rihght or work corectly. Instruction manual is noyt very good. Thanks
for the dvd player connection, you should just follow the colored cables and put them to the same colored input. as for the PIP feature, you have to check this link...

Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.
Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.
If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.
To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.
Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.
Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.
