How do I Watch TV when using Computer?

Last Update date : 2017.12.08

PIP allows you to watch a TV channel and another video source, such as a VCR or DVD player, or two video sources, such as a VCR or DVD player, at the same time. 



1. Please note that the PIP function do not allow viewers to watch two channels at the same time.

2. Some TV models may not support PIP.

3. The computer is only an example. It can be replaced by DVD players or any other devices. It is only that different devices should use different types of cables to connect to the TV.

4. This feature may not be available depending on the region.
