Cloud DVR vs Physical DVR

Cloud DVR vs Physical DVR

When I look at my DVR recordings on my DVR, it says I have 17 recordings, 27% full.  When I look at my recordings through the website (Cloud DVR), it says I have 17 recordings, 48% full. 

 

I hope my Cloud DVR doesn't think it's full up and start deleting older recordings even though my DVR says it's only half full.

 

What's going on here?

The cloud dvr is smaller than the physical dvr. Comcast states the cloud dvr is 60 hours of recording regardless of HD or SD. You will have to look up your model of dvr to find the disk size, most likely its 500GB
