      After the June 12th conversion, I found it necessary to install a cnverter box provided by Comcast (my cable provider). Prior I was using a two way splitter to access my PIP. I have lost my PIP viewing and wonder if I can regain it using a 2 way splitter and what is the sequential hook-up? Or any solution for viewing PIP.

      When you say PIP, you're talking about Picture in a Picture right?

      Hello Mario - here are the steps.

      1. Coax from wall to 2-way splitter
      2. A/v Output of splitter with coax to your set-top digital box
      2.(a) Out of digital box with RCA cables (Yellow - video / Red - RightAudio / White - LeftAudio) into the TV
      3. The other A/V output of splitter to your DTA adapter. Out of your DTA adapter into your TV's coax RF input.

      Note about step 3: If your TV is digital capable you may not need the DTA adapter. If you have anymore questions and/or if this does not help. Please feel free to email me at
