    I have a Pioneer PDP 434 HDE and I’m struggling with the picture in picture function. Input 1 on the media box is my Sky Plus and connected to the PC input is a WinXP PC.

    I’m trying to have the main picture with the PC input and in the small secondary picture as my Sky+ input. (And vice versa)

    All I seem to achieve is the PC as the picture and channel 1 as the secondary input. Seeing as I don’t have anything configured on channel 1, this channel is blank. All my TV signal comes through input 1 from the Sky+. When I try to change the input when in PiP mode, I receive the error: Cannot change the channel.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    It has been a while now... just wondering if anyone new here has figured out how to get PiP working with the PC input on the Pioneer 434 HDE?

    It works OK on mine. I switch to the PC input on the main screen (using the PC button), then use the PiP button (to the right of the PC button) to get a little screen in the bottom right corner of the plamsa.

    I then use the Right Arrow button to move to the little screen, and select an Input from there (my Sky+ is Input 1). The whole screen goes black for a second and then everything is OK (PC in the main window, and SKY+ in the little window)

    If this isn't working for you maybe its a refresh rate thing (I use 60, 70 and 75Hz

    Mike,

    Thanks very much for you response, it work like a dream now! :clap:

    I was missing out the ‘Right Arrow’ button step, therefore changing the main source to Sky+ and overriding the PC input.

    Thanks again :thumbsup:
