PIP not working


Standard Member
I have a dual tuner Loewe Planus tv with PIP capability, which I have had for 10 yrs and has worked fine until recently.

I have a HD recorder and digital set top box also connected.

When I use the PIP function now, I can watch one of my analog tv channels in the main picture, and one of my AV channels (e.g. set top box channel) in the smaller one. However I cannot do it the other way around. I get the AV channel fine in the main screen, but in the smaller picture I just get snow.

Watching 2 AV channels in PIP mode works fine.

Everything seems to be cabled ok, and as a I said, the TV has no problem with viewing the analog channels on their own, or in the main PIP screen - they just don't work in the smaller pic.

Is this likely to be indicative of a problem with the TV/tuner or can you suggest anything?
