    When using this TV as a PC monitor, is it only possible to view anologue TV in the PIP and not Freeview ?

    I can get it to work with the anologue signal but there doesn't seem to be any way of changing it to Freeview. Am I missing something ?

    Yeah i never got it to work with digital TV either, which is completely pointless. PIP on this TV is completely pointless.

    Yes I agree.

    Not a show stopper for me by any means but it would have been nice.

    Saw the 32" model at my mate house last night. Had a play around with the PIP settings.

    Agreed, pretty useless as DTV does not work across the board.:rolleyes: What a waste.

    HDMI does work with a lot of other inputs though so the best chance would be SKY HD (HDMI?) and another source be it Component or the pc input maybe.

    Xbox 360 was the mega though:clap:

    Guys could you tell me if it's possible to use the PIP to display a PC desktop and play back a DVD (either from the PC?? or a separate DVD player) at the same time?

    I'd quite like to order this mainly as a PC monitor but I watch a lot of AVIs and MPEGs on my PC (via VLC) while browsing etc and want to know if this is possible on the 26"/32" Samsung. Would the 26" be better than the 32" for this sort of use? Thanks
