DVR Service

I have the Pace XG2 box.  Is it possible to have cloud DVR on this?

Re: DVR Service

So no Cloud DVR service without a physical DVR connected at home (XG1/XG2)?  The cloud just allows you to pull down what is on the box?  Was just trying to avoid the clunky box if I can.

Re: DVR Service

Apparently the XG2 has the ability to be a "cloud only" DVR however Comcast has chosen not to use it that way, at least not yet.

there is a new beta for streaming TV for internet only customers that gives access to TV and a 20 hour cloud DVR to the beta customers. Apparently it is limited to internet "only" customers.
