    Is there any way to select the audio for the small picture, rather than the large picture, using an HR44?

    Press down to switch between them. Or are you just wanting to swap only audio?

    The Genie does not support it (yet).

    Come to think of it, while a few televisions support this, I haven't seen any set-top boxes that do.

    Nope and I doubt there will be since its so easy to swap pictures. Personally I do side by side a lot more than pip.

    No. Only primary gets sound. It easy to make the secondary, the primary, but it can take a quite a few seconds.

    3 seconds is quite a few?

    It can take several seconds. I wonder if he's referring to an "issue" I've posted about on several occasions. When using DLB or a PIP, and one of the buffers isn't live, there's an audio delay of several seconds. If the buffer (or PIP) is live, all is fine. Happens on my HR44, but not on my HR24 (using DLB). Others have confirmed the issue, others have tried to blame my Pioneer AVR ( including DTV) and still others confirm the issue who don't have an AVR.

    It's a lot slower on my HR34 - haven't timed it, but it way more then 3 seconds for the primary to get back audio.

    It would be nice if side by side were full screen, could there be a software up grade that could fix that?

    I love PIP but we so need a one button PIP on/off toggle.

    Because of that and the audio delays on buffered tuners, I hardly ever use PIP. I think I would if they addressed those issues.

    why would you want something like this? You can't fit two rectangular pictures "laying down" on two rectangular spaces "standing up" without messing the picture completely

    I used to have it on a Mitsubishi tube projector some years back and it looked great to me, the screen was 70 inches. I could also switch the sound by going back and forth with out the picture changing sides.
    The picture in picture was from over the air or video inputs.
