I made an error in my initial reporting..
You can actually change the orientation of the preview to top, bottom, left or right..
You can either show a single preview or 4 thumbs..
And no, you can only see inputs 1-4 and AUX (front input..)... 5, 6 and 7 aren't not available..
I personally think the thumbs are small, but I think you can use it to "preview" what's on..
Make no mistake, this isn't picture in picture.. the previews are only a couple of frame snapshots per second, and scaled down... I will try and test it with only a single source window instead of the default 4 and see if the frame rate is any better (more PIP like..)
As a general note to everyone.. AVS is a great resource, but downloading and reading the manual can answer almost any questions you might have, and answer the ones you didn't even know to ask about
In addition, the videos posted on the Amazon product page show a lot of the features available, and most have at least a screen shot associated with them..Amazon 818 Page Link
