Just got Comcast to put in the HDTV box and I wanted to confirm my settings.

My TV is 16:9

It is set for 16:9
YPbPr is set for 1080i, for some reason 720p doesnt work.
4:3 Override is OFF

Are those settings correct. The picture on both non HD and HD are great, so I'm assuming everything is cool.

Here is my problem:
Before getting the HD box, I had PIP and POP. Now there is a message at the bottom of the screen saying PIP does not work with INP-DTV. Is that right? I can't use any of my PIP/POP features of the television in DTV mode?

I am presuming that you Set will not accept a 720p signal. And no you may not use PIP with the Component Inputs. My suggestion is to connect all of the outputs from the 5100 to your set. That means Component, S-video, Composite, and RF. Also route the cable through your Set and then into the 5100 and you should be able to PIP the different sources as long as they are not composite.
Never argue with an idiot.
