You probably should have but after the fact you can’t tell what was happening.

It really doesn’t matter where it gets saved to unless you were swapping a DVR. But I believe it would be whichever DVR it’s taking its tuner from

Re: 2 DVRS x1

one last question and i'll leave you alone.  ok two questions.

 

with two x1 boxes that i have and with 6 programs recording shouldn't i at least have had one tuner left

to watch live TV?   

what happens when you press record when watching live TV on a regular digital box?  where does that get recorded to?

It’s a box for box swap, you can go to your local service center and swap it anytime

will Comcast do that for me if i ask?  Is there a cost to do this?

Re: 2 DVRS x1

The XG2 has 4 tuners, one for live TV and 3 to feed up to 3 XiDs. Currently, 2 of your DVR’s tuners are used for the 2 XiDs that you have. Swapping an XG2 for one of your XIDs will totally free up the DVR (minus tuners for live TV)

XG2 has tuners to give like a DVR

 

can you explain that a little more I didn't understand it.

right now i have 2 different DVRs.  one is the big one with the time on the front and one is a small one

with just a white light.

 

i also have two regular digital non dvr boxes.

If you have series scheduled to record, it records on the dvr with the most space.
If you physically press record at a DVR, that’s the one it goes to

Re: 2 DVRS x1

what is the difference with the XG2?

 

how will i know which program is recording on which DVR?  do I have to set the recording up on the

DVR that I want it to record on?

Re: 2 DVRS x1

You also have 2 Xids, each take a tuner ( ability to record) from the dvr and each DVR uses a tuner for live TV, it’s also possible your recordings were overlapping. To get the most of recording ability swap one of the XiDs for an XG2.

How do i know which programs are set to record on which DVR?  

Yesterday we had 6 programs recording at one time and a got a message when i tried to watch a 7th show that was not recording.

 

I thought we could record 12 programs at one time?  How can I prevent this from happening?

 

Thank you.
