Remote DVR recording. Can't pick which box a show/movie is recorded on?

Whichever dvr (you didn’t say what models or how many) you press record at is where that’s where the recording is stored. If you have a recording set for the future, it goes to the dvr with less space

I'm talking about setting a recording online. There's no option to pick which box it's recorded to. I have one XG1v4 and 3 XiD-p.

Then everything recorded goes to the actual dvr. The XiD is not a dvr, it just has access to your recordings

adding, the 3 xiD boxes take a tuner from the DVR reducing the number available to it for live and recording (a total of 6). swap one of the xi6 for an Xg2 which had 3 extra tuners to loan out (same price) and will let your DVR have all 6 tuners available.
