  1. I am trying to find out how I can get a PIP on my TV with my Spectrum cable box, in the older tv’s you could watch a picture in a picture, like 2 different tv show, how can I get this on my TV?

    • Hello Barbara and thank you for tuning in. In the remote of your Spectrum box you will get the Picture in Picture functionality. There is one key that says PIP on/off, which toggles this feature on or off. There will be also PIP Swap, to select which input signal you want in the smaller display, as well as PIP Move to move the little box around. Lastly there is a PIP CH +/- which lets you change the channel on the small display. I hope this information can solve your issue!
