Default PIP (Picture in Picture)

Today I discovered that my HR54/700 has the PIP option. I beamed it up and it does show 2 channels at the same time. However, I can't seem to switch the sound between telecasts. I've tried the left/right buttons. Is there any way to switch sounds while 2 different channels are on the screen?

Maybe I should note I have the (new?) shorter remote. It looks like the one at the link below.

Thanks. Finally got it working today. Now I have another question about PIP. It appears that I can only do PIP on the set that is powered by my Genie 4K. My big screen in another room has the latest DTV box. My DTV installer said it would be best hook my system up this way.

I would like to have PIP available on the big screen. IF I got another Genie 4K unit which I assume would then hook into the normal DTV box, would I have PIP on both sets.

Perhaps a simpler question would be how to I get PIP on both sets.
