Controlling which Hopper gets a timer
Posted 24 July 2012 - 05:32 AM
From a Joey, it doesn't appear that I can control which Hopper "gets" a particular timer. I'd been adding timers and I noticed that "The Newsroom" recorded on both Hoppers (I think I entered it twice).
Now, I can imagine that entering a timer while watching directly from a particular Hopper would put the timer on THAT Hopper. Do I have to go through the process of changing which Hopper a Joey is linked to in order to switch which Hopper "gets" a timer?
In my case, I want to put regular series episodes on one Hopper with sports, movies, concerts, etc., on the second. I was just hoping for some 'easy' way to say "Put THIS timer HERE and put THAT one THERE".
Thanks in advance. So far, I'm really liking what I have here. I just have to adapt to the new "way of being"

To change which Hopper it's paired with, on the Joey go into Menu/Settings/Network Setup/MOCA/Whole Home and select the Hopper you wish to set the recording on. (There's a colored-button shortcut that gets you there faster but I haven't memorized those yet )

YES, all Hoppers can see the recordings on any Hopper.
