I have a Dish HD34-310 HDTV. For SD: the side by side PIP are 15"w x 12" h. The left picture loses 2" of picture on the left and the right picture loses 2" of picture on the right. For HD: the side by side PIP has a 15"w x 91/2 " h left side and a 141/2" w x 91/2" h right side. When showing 2 HD channels with side bars, the left side loses the left side bar and the right side loses the right side bar. The result is two pictures with 2 side by side bars in the middle. When you have a full HD picture on each side, the Left side loses 21/4" of picture on the left and the right side loses 2 1/4" on the right. The large PIP is 16 1/2" w x 9" h and shows more picture than I see on a full screen which is 29" w x 161/2 " h. On the full screen I lose about 3/4' of what is shown on the large PIP on the left, right and bottom. The little PIP is 11 1/4" w x 6 1/8" h. It also shows more picture than a full screen.
Is anyone else losing picture in side by side PIP? If not, is there a way to resize the PIP to get all the picture. I know the VIP622 does not allow one to reset the vertical nor horizontal for a full screen. The 921 had that capability.
