Yep - now one can't see either the PIP screen, nor what's behind it.

You do realize you can always resize the individual application window down so it's not obstructed, right?

I don't think it is possible, make it more or less transparent wont help. The purpose of pip is "picture in a picture" i would suggest getting another smaller monitor for watching tv, and hook it up right beside the big one.

This would be a feature of the TV itself, otherwise you cannot do it.
Even if you use one of the freebie programs to control the transparency of the applications on your Windows, it would not have any effect or control over the PIP windows.

Other alternative would be to watch TV through Internet and use a transparency application instead of the feed coming from your antenna or cable. But I agree with others, watching a (football game - not effing soccer) with even 70% transparency is going to make it look like the players are playing with one of them smiley faces in the background.
