I have never played with it at all but I will have a look tonight just
to compare using software.

I have never really seen the value in PIP when you have the ability to
record the other channel. It is something I will never use as I always
found that trying to watch two shows at the one time ruins both of
them. I guess there is some merit in using it to spot when something
starts/stops perhaps but not really with all the other great mythtv
