maybe they are updating the manual to show the new HD GUI ....
Not yet. They just didn't intend for it to be posted.
People want to do this but they would use their phones, tablets, or netbook/laptops. Who has a facebook page or app up just to see what people say and not to respond. To each their own but the bottom line is that PIP is a niche product at best. It's like TiVo. People who like it love it and those who just want to watch tv don't care enuogh to make it an issue. Consumerism drives PIP not companies.
Game mix - like NY Rangers, NY Nets, & NY Mets? Or game mix from one sport? Which I don't care about.
Point taken, but user demand rare.
Well, U-verse can do it.
With 5 tuners on board it would be cool if it could do QUAD PIP, 4 channels at once on one screen.
That would require four video decoders. It's only going to have two.
For me that will be overkill.
What I would like is an Internet PIP. There been many time on TV I see a movie trailer and I want to look at its movie clock for my area.
Now I got to get my laptop, turn it on, etc., etc.. Really would be nice to use the Internet via the television, which in my home is always on.
Well, sounds like you need an Internet-enabled TV.
The ones I seen take up the whole screen in Internet mode.
Actually, I don't care how I get it, as long as it is in a HD PIP.
The HDTV's with a Web Browser don't do PIP?
I am with you Drucifer. It would be cool to have an instant on Internet instead of having to go to my laptop. It would be cool on the DTV Remote to have a button you would push that would launch a web browser and the live TV would go into a PIP mode. I wonder how a DTV Internet Remote would be designed? Have a flip down small keyboard and mouse on the remote? Only one thing what would happen if the web browser crashed?
However, the processors in current boxes might not be able to handle something like that? I read an article that said boxes may soon start coming with powerfull processors like the new Tegra 3 or Arm Processors.
I already have that. It's called an iPad...
I can't say that I would never use the PiP function, because I probably would, but it's not really a selling point to me. HOWEVER, the "potential" lack of a limit on Series Links, and the rumored eSATA support are a selling point to me (well, the eSATA support is POTENTIALLY a selling point to me).
It would integrate with Kinect and Xbox Live Avatars. Probably only via coax though.
I wouldn't like holding a tablet all the time. Just grabbing the DTV remote and pushing a button to load the web browser would still be better.
Because grabbing the iPad and pushing a button to load the web browser is so difficult?
Ipad's are heavier than a remote.
Kinect doesn't require a remote. Plus it works with coax RVU over WiFi.
Who said I sit around holding my iPad all the time?!?!
I have it beside me...
Sorry I should have said some of the time.
