Thinking of moving to Directv from Dish. Does the Genie 2 have picture in picture. If not, how do I get an HR54 that does?

No, because the Genie 2 server itself has no local A/V outputs (i.e., it's "headless") and can only be accessed by clients that are limited to only one satellite tuner and/or one stream from the server at a time.

You'll have to insist DIRECTV give you a Genie 1 when you call to sign-up, preferably an HR54 model.

While the G1 is less capable that the G2 in some ways, it's more capable and flexible than the G2 in others like with PIP here.
