How to Use the PIP Function on the Sony Bravia

By Melissa King

Your Sony Bravia television features a Picture-in-Picture (PIP) function, also called Twin Picture. The PIP function displays the image on your computer monitor on the Bravia screen while simultaneously showing the picture from a TV channel in a smaller inset window. The PIP feature enables you to work on business projects while watching TV. You can also use the feature to give presentations to employees, clients and co-workers.

Step 1

Connect an HDMI, DVI or HD15-HD15 cable to the appropriate jack on the back of your computer. Connect the other end of the cable to the matching jack on the Sony Bravia TV.

Step 2

Connect a stereo mini-plug audio cable to your computer's audio output jack if using a DVI or HD15-HD15 cable. Connect the other end of the audio cable to the audio input jack on the TV. You don't need an audio cable if connecting via HDMI.

Step 3

Press "Input" on the remote control. Highlight "PC" and press "+." The image on your computer monitor displays on the Bravia screen.

Step 4

Press the "Tools" button on the remote control. Highlight and select "PIP." An inset window appears on the screen.

Step 5

Move the inset window around by pressing the up, down, left or right arrow keys on the remote control.

Step 6

Change the channel displayed in the inset window by pressing the "CH +/-" or numeric buttons.

Step 7

Switch audio between the main screen and the inset window by pressing "Tools" and highlighting "Audio Swap." Press "+" and then highlight the window you want listen to. Press "+" again.

Press "Tools" and select "Exit PIP"; then press "+" to cancel PIP mode.
