Picture-in-picture Apple tv

Is there a way to mute the sound coming from channels playback when using the pip feature. Like, if I have the olympics in the small window but I’m watching something on Netflix. I can’t figure out how to mute the sound from channels. Is it possible?

Try turning on the “shake to mute” feature, mute using that and then try PIP

Edit: this only works with the old Apple TV remote which has an accelerometer. The new one doesn’t. It would be nice to have an app level mute option though.

Yes, I'd love the app-level mute to be offered as an option on the new Siri remote. My Sonos system with nearby/grouped speakers would really benefit from that, since muting now only mutes the TV soundbar and I can still hear the audio.
