How Connections Affect the PIP and POP To see a picture in the PIP or POP , you may need to select an input source . If the only input connected is ANT - A , then both the main picture and the PIP / POP will be from that input source . If other video equipment is connected , you may be able to view these input sources as the PIP / POP . When connecting your new Mitsubishi bigscreen , it is important to understand which main picture and PIP / POP input sources can and cannot be used together . Table 1 shows which inputs can and cannot be used together and the limitations they may have . If you press the INFO key it will display the current Input , signal ( 480i , 480p , or 1080i ) , format , time , day and sleep time .

Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i , 480p , and HDTV 1080i . All other DTV signals , such as 720p , need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types . Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting .
