    How to I connect my Philips TV set to us Picture in Picture (PIP)?

    Published on 2016-12-29

    In order to use this feature you have to connect two signals to your set:

    • One of the signals must be from an HDMI device (DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.) and be connected to either the HDMI1 or HDMI2 jack
    • The other signal can be either analog or digital and can be connected to any available (Non-HDMI) jack (See hookup guide for details)

    To set your preferences for PIP:
    1) Press the MENU button on the remote
    2) Push down the cursor ring to select SETUP from the menu
    3) Push the cursor ring right to select PREFERENCES

    3) Exit the menu

    To activate PIP push the PIP button on the remote. Use the cursor left/right to highlight the PIP window or the left/right screen in Dual screen.
