How can I change from TV1 to TV2 in the DVR menu?

It matters if you are in Single/Dual mode, and Record Plus setting in Dual mode, but you might be better off not thinking that you "set something to record to TV2" but rather that you "set something to record". If you start a recording of something that has already started, hitting record does give you a prompt for TV1 / TV2, but that is different from a future recording.
If you are watching something on TVx and don't want a pending timer to interrupt your viewing of that show, you can hit Record and start a recording of what you are watching. You'll get a choice to record it to TVx or TVy. Single mode makes a difference, but I never really use Single mode.

Another choice for what I THINK was the original question would be to just start recording what you are watching on TV2 with the Record button on TV2. It will ask if you want to record it to TV1 or TV2. Pick TV1 and leave Record Plus alone. In 30 minutes, TV2 will start recording what was due to happen, but as soon as you started the recording to TV1, you can select it from the DVR list and start watching the recording. Then you won't even see that TV2 switches when its time comes.

I have set something to record on TV2, but I want to change that to TV1 since I'm watching something on TV2 at the same time. How does one do that?
I run in dual mode with record plus off. If you're set up the same just delete the timer for tv2, go to tv1 and set a new timer there.
Shows that my wife watches are set to record on tv1 and shows that I watch are set to record on tv2. Of course you can watch all recordings on either tv.
