How to Change DVR Default?

General Questions...Newbie to Comcast and not sure I like it.  I had a

MOTOROLA DCT3416 in my room and was able to change channels from my pc, record, etc.  In my boys room they had put a standard box which should have been HD so I had to take it back and exchange it.  When they gave me the new box it was a MOTOROLA MORN150N which is smaller and works better in my room on my shelf.  Now the DVR is set as default to my boys room.  It will not let me change the default and if I try to change channels or record off my pc it all goes to the boys room.  Am I going to have to switch equipment back in order to use my pc with my tv?  Why isnt there options in DVR Manager to change default?  I have my devices listed 1, 2 and 3 in setup but I cant find anywhere that allows me to change to the device I want to program?  HOpe what I am saying makes sense to someone.  Thanks for your help.

Re: How to Change DVR Default?

Its an rng 150n and it is not a dvr.  so trying to send a record won't there for obvious reasons. 


when you go here you see your cable boxes, and you should see a radio button to set as default, and to allow channel changing.




the default is a dvr setting, since your box the 150 is not a dvr it can't be the default.
