Hi,
is it possible with MP2 to hear music with running Live-TV in the background (only video stream running in background) or in a small window?. Would be great when I could hear music while commercials are running on TV.

    Hi.
    I've not tested this myself but I think this should be possible with the PIP feature of MP2...

    This would be a great Feature! I have a 2 Zone amplifier here, so I could look at the tv and hear musik in the kitchen at the same time.

    Because I read, that MP2 has 2 Independent "media Services" already for PiP, this would be a great Feature to!

    OMG. Didn't know that. Did know the PIP feature but not the 2 separate devices feature.
    That's really awesome. Have to try this out.

    You miss-read I was saying that you can not assume that because MP2 supports PIP that it would support playback of 2 separate audio clips and outputting them unmixed to 2 separate sound devices... It would have to support different audio devices for each player. I don't know if it could do that, but it sounds like a separate (but slightly related) feature.

    I think this is not possible. You can output only one audio stream -> commercial (TV) is muted and you can hear music but not both audio stream. Correct me if I am wrong. :)

    Confirmed - at the moment you can only hear one music source at a time.
    But I think this was not the original question - The question was whether you can listen to music (=1 audio stream), while you watch TV (=1 video stream). I have never tried it with music and video - only with 2xvideo (=pip). But I would bet it works ;)
