So the PIP on my new Samsung TV is SHITTY to access, Logitech Harmony?

Just bought a Samsung 40" 1080p LCD TV today. Normally I like to have the PC full screen and the Cable signal in the PIP box (which I did all the time on my previous 32" TV). Turning on the PIP is a chore though. I don't see a button for it on the remote. What I have to do is go into a menu, scroll around, find PIP, and turn it on. THEN I need to scroll around in ANOTHER menu to set the sound to the PIP box. WTF?????? This is really pissing me off. I may take it back to Best Buy JUST before their 30 day return policy runs out because of this BS.

Think a Logitech Harmony remote would allow me to access PIP with the touch of 1 button?

Hmmm I might have to take a look at the ones at work. We sell the same models. But I can see how that would be a bother.

POJ? Yeah, it was $1000, so I guess that's pretty cheap. The PIP still pisses me off though! Sad to say, but my no name Digimate 32" TV did the PIP BETTER!
