Changing Audio and swapping picture with PIP on Genie HR34-700

When I am using PIP with my Genie is there a way swap pictures (smaller picture becomes the larger picture and vis vera).  Also, is there a way to swap just the audio such that I am listening to the audio of the smaller screen?

Thanks

Okay, I figured out how to swap the pictures using the "down" button on remote.  So now my questions are

1) is there a way to swap the audio source so that I hear the audio from the smaller picture?

2) Is there a way to short cut to turn on\off the PIP without having to go thru the "info\PIP\off"?

"No" to both questions.

Thanks for the response.  If it is possible I would appreciate it if you could put these items on wish list for your tech people to consider.

You'll want to email that suggestion directly to DirecTV.  None of us here are employees.

I know this is kind of an old thread, but you CAN do this now. If you simply press the down arrow on your remote, it will switch the two. For example, in side by side pip, the left window has audio. So, you hit the down arrow,and the one from the right, moves to the left and then it has audio.

Nope, still not possible.  If you read the thread CAREFULLY, you will realize the OP wants to just swap the audio, not JUST the picture

well now we're arguing semantics. You can accomplish what the user is asking. If you have Donald Duck on the left, it will have the audio (Left always has audio). And, you have Mickey Mouse on the right with no audio. So, you want audio on Mickey Mouse.  Hit the down arrow; you WILL have audio on Mickey Mouse, and it will be on the left window.  So with one click you are switching audio, it's just that the picture moves to the main (left) window.

Not semantics.  Here is the OP question, 

1) is there a way to swap the audio source so that I hear the audio from the smaller picture?


The answer to that is NO,  no matter how you slice it. What you are posting was already figured out by the OP themselves

As I said, if you read the thread CAREFULLY, you would of have noticed….

Peds48 does not seem to be a very nice person. Very snide remarks. But thanks for pointing how smart you think you are and how dumb you think everyone else is. It's a nasty world out there.
