    getting the picture in picture. was setting up a family member's new tv yesterday. its a sanyo 27 inch forgot the model #. but it doe's have some nice features on it. in the manual it says to hook it up to another video source. to be able to get the pip. on another channel and the person does not have a stereo vcr. so i'm not sure how to help him hook up his tv he wants the pip. is there another way to rig this up. Don,

    How many RF in's does the TV have? If it only has 1 and no internal signal splitter then you will need to feed it 2 signals.
    You could get an RF splitter from RS (or wherever) and send one cable to the TV and the other to the VCR. The VCR can then be hooked up to one of the TV's Line in's. Then PIP would be set to Video 1.
    The reason it needs 2 sources is so that you can have 2 different channels at the same time. My TV does this on its own but most do not.
    Hope this helps.

    Pretty much the cheapest TV tuner is a (used) VCR. You can get one in a pawn shop for $20. Who cares if it can't read a tape? If you need a remote for it, either hunt down a replacement from the manufacturer or get a $25 Cinema 6 or 7.
