    I work for Sony, and I've run across something interesting a few times. Some owners of the fs-100 series televisions have had a pip window come up. Because their remotes don't have a control for pip, they have no way to turn it off or control the channel it's showing (usually the same as the big screen). We usually suggest auto-programming again because that shuts down any pip windows.
    My question is this. I own a kv27fs100, and I'm wondering of I purchase a remote with pip controls, and go into the service menu and enable pip with the ID-3 setting (which is supposed to enable/disable pip), will I have pip? And yes I know it would have to be set up with a vcr to watch another channel.
    I'm wondering if anyone has an answer before I go out and buy a remote. Not that I really want to use pip anyway, but just out of interest.

    Hey I don't know the answer. But being that you work for sony, could you please tell me how to access the service menu. A tech messed up my grid. He replaced the picture tubes; BLUE, GREEN, and RED. He did a poor job aligning the grids, and my picture looks tilted. Please help if possible. I have the Sony HDTV ready 57 in widscreen KP-57WS500. Thanks

    No. You will not have PIP. The micro is used on several models, and therefore has the brains to work with PIP. But your chassis doesn't have the circuitry to produce PIP.
