In order to enable the new stuff Comcast eliminated a few minor never used features like the picture-in-picture I want to use today! The Eagles and Phillies are both playing at 8:00 PM.
It’s the 21st Century. I can ad lib a solution… maybe.
Our Vizio TV has picture-in-picture built in, but one picture will have to be the cable tuner in HD and the other the set’s built-in tuner. It too might be HD. I’m really not sure at this point. This is the techno equivalent of rubbing your stomach while patting your head and hopping on one leg.
In case you’re wondering what I’ll be doing during halftime of the Giants/Texans game you now know.
Conclusion: Wow, it works! The setup to split the screen was reasonably straightforward… if you’re nerdy. Seriously, this is not for the faint of heart.
On top of that there is the ability to actually make the split 50/50 and swap audio from side to side.
As it turns out the picture-in-picture Comcast removed was inferior to what I already had.
