I have E86 STB feeding Toshiba 57HDX82 tv. Question is how do I get PIP (picture in picture to work). I have component video out of STB feeding HD1 input on tv. (DVD feeds HD2 input). I have external antenna split, one lead feeds STB, the other feeds Ant 1 on tv. I took the video output (Y,R,W) out of the E86 and ran to video 1 input on tv... but no picture (could get audio). Called Hughes and they said STB would not work this way. Is there any way to get DSS inputs and OTA inputs to work on PIP ?? One thought is to feed video out of STB into VCR, then run output of VCR into Video 1 on tv ??? will this work or is there a better way ??? thanks

The hughes will only output one signal at a time. You could run the antenna split into the VCR and use that as a separate tuner for PIP.

You could set the E-86 to output 480i when doing POP. Action then Input on the remote will change between 480i and 1080i.
