I just purchased this TV yesterday and I'm messing around with everything you can do with it.  It seems like there is so many things you can do, i haven't even touched the surface of it.  One thing I want to figure out is the PIP.  I see how to turn it on, which seems way too long to do by the way, there should just be a quick button to push to turn it on...  I can't figure out how to change the channel on the PIP, every time I change the channel is changes it on both the main screen and the PIP.  Can someone please help me??

Also, if anyone has any tips on other things you can do with this TV please let me know.  I would appreciate it!

I'd be willing to bet that if you included the make/model number of "this TV", someone may be able to help with your question(s). wink.gif

It sounds to me like you are running an antenna or coax cable from the wall into the 75 ohm RF connector on the back, since both the main window and the PIP window change together.

Your TV needs two signal sources, one for the main window and one for the PIP window. So you need to run a satellite or cablebox signal into your TV's HDMI connector which you select for viewing in the main window. Then, since your TV will only display a picture from Samsung's integrated tuner, connect an antenna to the 75 ohm RF connector on the TV, or split your cable before the box and run the second coax cable into the RF input.

Unfortunately, if you have Comcast splitting the cable won't work because they are now encrypting the signal on the coax. Possible other cable companies are not yet doing this, and, in those cases, you'll be able to watch local broadcast channels in the PIP window.
