I have been looking around and cant seem to find any large tvs that still offer it. Weather that be a dual tuner, or not. I remember having one, that was a little window and you could switch. I have heard they make some where you can do a split scree version of pic in pic. So any info?

Anyone at all? Can anyone tell me if they even still make them in the 55 inch plus sizes?

There are also smaller TVs (even LED flat-panels) that offer picture-in-picture - we just bought a pair of LED FPTVs (Mom's Samsung UN40EH5003 and my Sony KDL-40BX450) that both support this feature - the Sony will be, in fact, my first TV of any size that supports PIP. The trick with PIP is that you have to use supported inputs (they will be in your owner's manual), as not all inputs will necessarily support PIP. These will actually be the fourth and fifth TVs in the entire house (and second and third FPTVs) that support PIP (one of them is Godzuki - the 38" Toshiba CRT that the Smart Samsung will replace) - it will also be the second Sony (the 32" Trinitron WEGA CRT supports PIP).

The Vizio XVT 58" CinemaWide HDTV (a one-of-a-kind 21:9 set) supports PIP and POP: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1417773/official-vizio-xvt3dxx0cm-21-9-cinemawide-owners-thread/90#post_22708641. Haven't tried two 1080p sources simultaneously though, only 1080i OTA and 1080p HDMI, but there don't seem to be any restrictions on what to hook up. The odd shape of the screen makes it a tough sell unless you're really into widescreen anamorphic movies, but if you do and you're also a PIP/POP whore this set (which Costco was blowing out for $1,000 over Black Friday weekend) is a steal. smile.gif
