    My TFT monitor has decided to die on me this weekend :mad:

    So in the meantime I have hooked my PC up to my PV500.

    However, it would appear that you cannot get picture in picture in the PC mode.

    Thought it would have had PiP in this mode, no?

    It is the same for xbox on progressive mode, you can see anything when using PIP.
    I don't think the PIP facility supports different refresh rates, scanning modes etc because the plasma is still displaying the screen all at once, so can't scan half of the screen at different speeds/modes etc.

    Ah, now that you say that I understand why.

    Cheers for that.

    Although there are a number of LCD's that have this function with PC input so I would assume the same rules apply? or do they?
