AJAX rendering some panelGroups

I have two forms in a xhtml-file: one displaying a dataTable, and one displaying some input-components.

In the first form, I have a selectOneRadio. Everything else should only be rendered once the user selected a value. I put a panelGroup with a rendered attribute after the selectOneRadio (that will hold everything in the first form besides the selectOneRadio itself) and I refresh that using AJAX, which works quite fine. But that panelGroup can't go past the first form (which makes sense).

So I put the components of the second form in a second panelGroup, but for some reason that second panelGroup is not rendered:

And in the first form, I tried refreshing it like this:

I tried "secondForm:secondFormGroup" instead ":secondForm:secondFormGroup" too.

Can anyone see why it's not rendering?

Edit: I forgot to mention that I tried putting another panelGroup around the second panelGroup and render *that* one. It didn't work either.
I agree. Here's the link:
