Phillips 60 in. rear projection approx. 10 years old
When we first turn the tv on the picture gets smaller, then larger, smaller then larger and does this for about 5- 10 minutes then works fine... it started this about 1 month ago.. we really love this tv and want to fix this problem.. also we have a DVR cable box on this TV, would that have anything to do with It?

This is a common problem with the older models. The opt chip fails. You can get a repair kit at www.magnavoxhelp.com. After a few months of getting smaller and smaller the audio and video will go out but the power light will remain lit.

Movies are shown at a higher resolution than games. That is why the picture is smaller with games than movies. If you turn the Auto Picture Size off, you can set lower grade video to a larger screen size but you will lose quality. Hope that helps.
Since you don't specify the make and model of the camera, I can only speak in general. Try a smaller capacity card. Some cameras are limited to smaller capacity cards by design. The larger ones will not be addressed correctly and can cause "odd" failures.
The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.
