We use it sometimes. Like, if we're watchin a show and a sports game. The show is interesting, so it's kept in the main window, and the game in the PIP, so if anything happens, we can swithc over. It's rather handy, I think.

I use it all the time to watch two games at the same time. Also, when the presidential debates were on, I put the debate in the small window and turned its audio on, while watching hockey in the main screen to keep from being bored to death...

I have never used mine either, but I only watch tv from DSS, and you can't use PIP with only one tuner.

Same here.

However it does work with video games and VHS playback. Sometimes I will play a video game while the commercials are on and then switch back when they are over.

I will use my PIP when watching movies in order to keep track of baseball scores or college basketball!!! Not too often, unless I am really interested in the game at hand...usually will be a local game that I am interested in seeing the outcome!!

I use it primarily for football but I also use the little window to scan other channels when I'm bored with what my wife is watching. Drives her nuts.

I use it during the commercials of the show I am watching, so I can flip back as soon as my show comes back on. I can't stand to sit there and watch commercials.

I never used it for years, but I started to recently.
I now use it for sports while the daughter is watching Blue's Clues or some Disney movie. When she gets bored and leaves the TV, I swap.

I haven't used mine any yet. I use a cable box so I can't use the PIP unless I get a splitter.

If you have a VCR you should be able to use PIP by using the VCR as a second tuner. I used to have cable before and that's how I was able to get PIP. This works with basic channels although it may not work with premium channels.

Actually you won't even be able to use the PIP with a splitter if you have a cable box. You'd need two cables boxes to do it.
