Just got this installed (2H/3J), so these might be silly questions:

1. One of my Joeys says it is linked to both hoppers. The other two are only linked to one of the Hoppers. I can change which hopper they are linked to, but can't link to both. Why is one of them linked to both Hoppers, and the others aren't? Does this matter?

2. One of my Hoppers doesn't let me choose PIP, it says all tuner services are in use. How do I get this error to go away?

3. Can I watch a recording on one Hopper from the other? I thought the guy said no, but it looks like it will let me choose recordings from the other Hopper.

Thanks.

They should only be linking to one hopper so that sounds like a bug.

Turn off your joeys and make sure you have one free tuner.

Yes, press dvr then choose the drop down next to the red button to select the other hopper.

The being "linked" to multiple Hoppers thing is definitely a bug that's been around for a while now. A reboot fixes it.
