We have created the technical roadmap for delivering this and have started working on that. We need to evaluation options when it comes to User Experience and how this will be made available to users – likely, we will just allow users to add Layouts to Playlists. Feel free to provide feedback on that.
Overall, our current estimation is that this will be something that you will likely see in your account towards the end of the year. Gradually, we will be releasing parts of it, e.g. fast switching from Layout to Layout. We will be updating you all so stay tuned!

Hey, any update on this? figured this was possible when I purchased 5 players.
Might need to switch platforms if this truly isn't doable.
We will be creating a special Widget that will allow you to switch to specific HDMI inputs, or switch to the Live TV. All of this will happen through the HDMI cable using the HDMI-CEC protocol.
DISCLAIMER: This might not work with all screen brands. We will be performing tests to let our Users know some brands that work with this, but we can’t really test all brands out there.
In order to further improve compatibility, this Widget will also allow you to setup custom HDMI-CEC commands, so that you can control your TV.
Since this feature will be a Widget, it means that you will be able to add it to a Playlist (e.g. playback a 20" video and then switch to Live TV, and loop this), or add it to a schedule to have timed changes.
