Is there a setting that will allow me to have self view be full screen every single time? Currently I maximized it from the touch panel as the local view while the remote view is on the opposite monitor. As soon as the view changes or content is shown it then reverts back to the PIP view while the rest of the screen has the blank gray haze.
Yes. Assuming you are running the latest code (CE8.2) see page 103. If you are running TC code just download the API guide for that, the syntax is different but it will be in the doc.
I'll give this a shot but since you mentioned the latest code ... I recently installed some MX800s and they came installed with TC7.3.6 so should I move these away from TC and over to CE?
Hi Chris - yes. TC code will only be in maintenance mode going forward (bug fixes, etc), any future features will be on CE. Proximity for example - not officially supported on TC, but is on CE.
Try the following setting, it will make selfview fullscreen and appear on the second monitor anytime presentation content isn't active, however when content is show it will minimize out of the way.

Video SelfviewDefault OnMonitorRole Second
What codec are you using? SX80 or MX700/800? You might be able to get what you want by adding a third monitor, but not 100% sure of that. Easy enough to try with just a TV or computer monitor for testing.
I have room kit plus codec. I have somewhat managed to workaround the issue by putting an HDMI splitter between the camera and the codec. Then, I run one HDMI from the splitter to the codec which outputs to our projection system, and the other HDMI output from the splitter direct to a TV. That works fine but now I need to disable the PIP that shows up on the projection screen when you move the camera. Is there a way to do that or is there another codec that would accomplish all this rather easily?
