TV and PC Simultaneous on One Screen

by faronking / May 16, 2009 4:14 AM PDT

Hello all,

So i have my computer hooked up to an LCD screen. Now, i connected a satellite TV to the same screen.

I can view both seperately. I want to view them simultaneously, side-by-side. For example, half the screen with showing my computer, and the other half playing TV.

Please note: i have both sources connected to one LCD screen, and i don't want to have the TV connected to the CPU.

Does the TV have PIP?

If not, you're done. PC control is the only way.

You know, the REMOTE has PiP but i can't seem to activate it! (nothing happens when i push the button)

I can't find the technical manual for the TV but it should have it!

Thanks anyways for the reply Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
