This is not currently supported unless you are using X.10. It will be in either the next version (slight chance) or the one after (big chance). though.

So if I put three cameras in a zone, and make one active and two inclusive... that wont make the two record when then active senses a motion detect?

you cant have mutiple cameras per zone, just multiple zones per camera.

this is now supported via "linked monitors" though I have not tested it ... umentation
Linked Monitors
This field allows you to select other monitors on your system that act as triggers for this monitor. So if you have a camera covering one aspect of your property you can force all cameras to record while that camera detects motion or other events. You can either directly enter a comma separated list of monitor ids or click on ‘Select’ to choose a selection. Be very careful not to create circular dependencies with this feature however you will have infinitely persisting alarms which is almost certainly not what you want!
