    I have an HR24 & a HR34. From one of the other rooms (non-DVRs) I select a program to record it always defaults to the HR24. It doesn't matter what name I give them it always defaults to the HR24. Can I change that, if so how do I change it to make the HR34 the default receiver?

    The receivers are put in order by receiver ID. You can't change a receiver ID.

    So I renamed the HR34 "This One" & the HR24 "Not This One". Hopefully the wife and kids can figure it out now, lol.

    Unless they record to "Not this one" just to be contrary. Are the kids teenagers? :)

    If you turned off sharing on the HR24, wouldn't the ability to record and watch it's content be available in it's own location, yet the HR34 would be watchable system wide and scheduable everywhere except the HR24?
