    So I know how to turn picture-in-picture on.

    How do I swap pictures?

    How do I change the channel on picture

    Press the down arrow to swap screens.

    You can only change the channel on the screen on the left (side by side mode) or the main screen if you're using the smaller screen within the larger screen.

    Make sense?

    you have to use the main genie to use picture in picture. It doesn't work on the minis. Hopefully some day it will but it might be a hardware limitation not software.

    You can change channels on either window, just switch to it and change channels.

    You can do double play on the clients though.

    Correct.
