Topic here is TVs, splitters, PIP (Picture In Picture)

Topic here is TVs, splitters, PIP (Picture In Picture) splitting a screen. Right now I have an old 65 inch screen Mitsubishi television along with Comcast cable. It's about 14 to 15 years old, purchased back in the fall of 2002 I believe. It's a big monstrosity, huge speakers on the bottom, about 2 feet to 3 feet thick, real heavy and cumbersome to move around. The tv's remote has a PIP button on it, when pressed the screen will split exactly in half so two different shows can be viewed at the same time, simultaneously. One side will be the Ant-B band, as it says onscreen, that feeds directly into an input in the back of the TV from the simple splitter in the wall outlet where the cable comes in. Actually this first feeds into a little box about the size of a small cell phone that allows expanded channel selection from where a line then goes direct to the TV input. The same splitter also feeds a line direct to the cable box which then has another cable from it into a different input in the back of the TV, this is side 2, displayed onscreen as the Input side. To change channels on this Input side, the Cable box remote must be used; to change channels on the Ant-B side a different remote must be used for the small phone size box. Sound only comes out of one side, I believe the left side as you are facing the screen, so the Enter button on the TV's remote must be pressed to make these screens switch/swap sides so you can hear the sound for the other program, no sound is heard for the other band while it is on the right side. This is old technology, worked pretty much like this for most of the time I've had this TV. Probably enough on this, you've probably heard and seen this old scenario before, I hope.Now, I am looking at replacing it with a newer flat screen, about the same size, of course I would like to retain these PIP, side by side features, but I'm not sure if this can be done. Are you aware of any new flat screens with these same PIP, side-by-side features? Sales guys at the local Best Buy stores said this PIP feature is probably no longer available on new TVs since there is no longer demand for it like there was a few short years ago. Is this true or not? One guy said the workaround is to purchase a device known as a HDMI Splitter that has the PIP function along with a Dual Tuner? How does this work, who makes them, are they easy to install and operate? I am a total mechanical dunce and totally unable to figure out anything on my own. He also said to approach Comcast cable and get an X1 Operating system from them? What is this? I haven't spoken to them yet. He also said Direct TV has what is known as a Genie DVR that would help if I switched to them? Do you have any advice here? Thanks.Philip ***********************

My tv/DVD unit just quit playing DVDs. When I press play, it makes noise like it's trying to play. And it won't eject the DVD either. I've been watching DVDs all day. I switched to the next DVD in the series and it stopped working. I e already unplugged it for an hour. It still doesn't work.
