    My setup is 2 TiVo Premiere Q's and 2 TiVo Minis. As explained to me, each mini takes one tuner each from one of the Premieres. So one Q records 4, the other records 2.

    My question is, how do I switch which one records 4? Currently the bedroom is recording 4, I want the living room to record 4.

    You have to repeat the setup on the Mini and choose the bedroom TiVo as the host. But if you do that then when you look at the Mini it will be a reflection of the bedroom TiVo instead of the livingroom TiVo. You'll have to go to the bottom of My Shows and pick the livingroom TiVo to display it's My Shows and play a program.

    That's good information. Are there instructions somewhere for the setup? It was done by my cable tech.

    You have to go to Help->Reset or Restart system->Repeat guided setup. As the name implies it's a guided setup, so it's step by step with clear instructions.

    I don't think you need to redo Guided Setup. Select the XL4 from "Settings" -> "Remote & Devices" -> "Connected TiVo DVR".
