PIP swap failure

1st off, the Genie "Help" section is trash. 2nd, I press Down arrow on my RC73 remote and only get the error DONG tone when I attempt to swap side-by-side shows. Moving the PIP to any of the other positions does not help. Please help me swap hockey games and quit giving me your DONG.

Missing NFL Playoff Games Because Of Issue Between DIRECTV and Local FOX Affiliate (WSFX)

I live in the Wilmington, NC area and the local FOX affiliate is WSFX. Since September, WSFX has refused to allow DIRECTV to broadcast their programming.
