    Hi. I have a new 32" WEGA with a dual-tuner for Picture in Picture. The problem is I have a digital cable BOX, not just a cable wire in. Some friends of mine told me I could buy some kind of splitter so that the VCR got a cable wire and the cable box got a cable wire. The Picture-in-Picture would be from the VCR not from the cable wire. Is this right? Another problem is that my VCR only goes to channel 69, none higher. Do VCR's go into the hundreds of channels? Should I return the TV for the 32" w/o PiP?

    Probably want to ask in the TV/Projectors area.

    The only way to get the regular picture and the PIP to show all of the channels is get two digital cable boxes. If you use a regular coax splitter and split the cable before the box, then you can feed one tuner the analog channels. The other tuner will work as usual using the digital cable box.
