Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9843419A1] A video signal processing system and method provides a Picture-in-Guide (PiG) feature. An Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is displayed in a first image region of a display. The EPG comprises various selectable display areas ("News", "LANDS END"). In addition, a video image is shown in a second image region (210) of the display. The system includes user-selection means (325) for selecting the various display areas in the first image region and the second image region of the display. In response to the selection of the second image region of the display, a third image region appears on the display, replacing the first and the second image regions.
