AV receiver that displays multiple screens?

is there such a thing as an AV receiver that can display multiple outputs in a picture in picture style config?

I have both my PC and satellite plugged into my AV receiver, and it would be nice to browse my PC whilst also having the news or something running at the same time - both images showing on 1 screen, picture in picture or whatever.

Is this possible? Does it exist?

Not on a single screen. Sorry. Receivers only output to one port at a time.

Does your Sat have a second video out that you can run to your TV, then you can use your TV or monitors PIP.

Yes, this is possible with the Denon X3000 and X4000 and Marantz SR6008 and SR7008 using the INSTAPREVIEW feature in that you can display one HDMI source on the full display with the remaining 5 rear HDMI inputs displaying in smaller picture frames at the bottom or just one of these HDMI inputs in a slightly larger picture frame (configurable to any of the corners of the main screen).
