I have question regarding Joey's and what options exist for setting up recordings...

From a Joey you can watch shows from more than one Hopper. When you setup a recording on a Joey can you specify which Hopper will record the show? Or are the timers setup only on the Hopper linked to the Joey?

Ideally I would like to have the option, from a Joey, to specify which Hopper will handle a timer. Does this exist?
Equipment: 2 Hopper, 1 Joey [soon to be 2 Joeys]

Basically, when you set up a Joey you pair it with a Hopper. Any timers set would be recorded on the paired Hopper. If you want to watch content from the other Hopper you can select it from the My Recordings menu but timers remain with the Hopper. If you change the pairing on the Joey to another Hopper the timer stays with the Hopper where the timer was created.
