Hi Brent,

That's what I'm looking for ... I searching infos about PIP features in 
MythTV ... 

my idea is to watch a DVD /or recorded Show / Video and PIP into LiveTV ... 
searching about why there are limits in MythTV ?

Yes I know the different players used in MythTV ... internal player ... 
xine(-lib) and mplayer ... anybody more infos ... I'm now searching mplayers, 
xine and vlc some other pages ...
