Has anyone tried out the PIP/PAP on this model yet?
My 61" Samsung DLP is on its last leg and I'm leaning towards the 70" Sony primarily because of PAP/PIP. I watch tons of football in the fall, so PAP is very important to me. Currently, I watch the NFL using PAP on my DLP via two Directv satellite receivers (one via HDMI and the other via cable input using coaxial cable). Two equal sized, side by side screens. For whatever reason, the new Samsung LED's I've been looking at only do PIP. A small subwindow is better than nothing, but not ideal. So, I've been looking for other tv's that have PAP and came across this Sony model. In fact, I didn't find any other current manufacturer that offers PAP.
I looked at the owner's manual and it is a bit confusing. If I read it correctly, PIP only works when you are connected to a PC. I don't know why this is. But, okay. However, PAP (which is more important to me anyway) should allow me to still watch two different games via two satellite receivers pretty much as I do now, using the same hookup to the tv (hdmi and cable input). From what I can tell, the main window will be slightly larger than the subwindow. But, i can deal with that.
