Select "PIP" and press "Enter."

Select the "PIP" option and set it to "On" to enable picture-in-picture. Select the source for your main picture, which can be any of the TV's video inputs. The sub picture will be your TV source.

Select whether the sub picture is cable or over-the-air and select the channel that you wish to display in the sub picture window.


In the PIP menu, you can change things such as the size and position of the PIP window.
