Audio advice -XL2/XL1

Many of you may know I am going to be working on a reality tv pilot episode soon... takes place in Brazil. We will be using 2 XL2s(hopefully) or 2 XL1s... we have 2 wireless lav systems (lectrosonics with tram mics) and one ME66 shotgun mic (plus the canon mics). Here's where I need you opinions: for capturing audio for a reality series, how can I best utilize this setup... also keep in mind much of it will be run and gun and our crew is limited to me and another guy... so with 2 cams rolling, what would you do? How would you handle it when there are multiple people speaking in one room... like an inpromptu meeting? Each cam use a wireless... for best quality, or split each cam to record 4 channels... using the lavs AND a on camera mic... how much will sound quality degrade using 2 audio sources on one cam (I have hardly ever used 2 sources... cause I like to keep my audio/video at top quality)... I want to get the most out of our audio... limited as it is. Thanks for your help!

I have moved your thread to our audio forum (Now Hear This), hopefully you
will get more replies there (since it is more about audio than the XL2)...
