As you surmised the PIP works with two distinct inputs. One source from the cable box (HDMI) will only ever tune THAT channel for output. If you want a separate source for PIP your choices are:
1) Add a splitter to your incoming cable (before the STB/DVR) and feed coax to the NX and use the TV's tuner to act as source #2 (keep in mind the TV will not tune in ALL the channels the box does, but let it scan to find as many as possible)
2) Add a second cable box to another input on the same TV
3) Use another secondary source into the tv (Terrestrial TV stations, if you get them in your area should work also)
Does your STB/DVR not have PIP built in already? Where in it uses the multi-tuner of the STB to display both sources via HDMI on one screen?
