A FAQ re the X1 DVR says its capacity is 300 hours Standard Definition and 60 hours High Definition.

I currently have 17 recordings, all SD, totaling 28 hours. (Most were scheduled on my XG-1 box, but a few were scheduled on the X1 web app, using my laptop.)

 

On the box it says 6% of capacity used. (Even that is a little odd, since 28 divided by 300 is about 9%, not 6%.).  But on the X1 web app, it pegs capacity used at a FAR larger 47% full. So it looks like the app is using the 60 hours capacity instead of 300 (28/60 = 47%), even though all the recordings were from SD channels. Why might I be seeing this discrepancy? Is “47% full” simply incorrect?

The Cloud DVR ONLY stores 60 hours of recordings, regardless if it is HD or SD quality (Cloud DVR FAQ). So no, there is no discrepancy.
