Record One Program While Watching

one program on the built-in DVR while watching
the other. Use the DVR keys on the remote
control to record programs or to play back
recorded programs.

Watch Two Programs at the Same Time

You do not need a special TV to watch two
programs at the same time. Use the picture-in-
picture (PIP) keys on the remote control, and
you will see a PIP screen on your TV.

Avoid Screen Burn-In

Images such as letterbox bars or side bars,
bright closed-captioning backgrounds, station
logos, or any other stationary images may
cause the picture tube in your TV to age
unevenly; this is known as screen burn-in.
Refer to the user guide that came with your TV
for more information.




Avoid screen burn-in.
Do not display the same fi xed images on your TV screen for extended periods
of time.
