    I am asking this for a friend. He is looking for a HDTV ready tv that is atleast 55". It must have picture in picture. Also, he stated that he thought you could do a split screen picture in picture (1/2 and 1/2). Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I've got a Mitsu. 55" 16x9. Great picture and like almost every widescreen on the market today it offers numerous pip options.

    Michael,
    I've got a WS-55807. the PiP options are quite varied. You can have 2 pics side by side, or up to 9 PiP windows on half of the screen.

    I've got a 55311, which is about the same as Frank's in terms of PIP and I have to agree - very flexible!!

    PS- You are asking about Widescreen, right? If not, we are probably not answering what you need [​IMG]

    Take a look at the new Mitsu 55311. Right around $2500 and a great TV. BB has a junior version of it, missing a few cool features, for about $100 less.
