Cloud DVR versus Physical DVR
Possibly it's because I've been a software engineer for 40+ years, but I'm confused. I recently took the X1 Koolaid, moving from a Non-X1 DVR to the XG1v4 which came with the addition of the Cloud. The joke is that the way our account was setup, using the Beta Stream app, we already had Cloud recording, just could not see it from the physical non-X1 box.
So, my question is how the current combined recording storage works! Do I really have 300 hours of recording capacity or is the cloud mirroring the physical box so that I can see the content from internet devices? Nowhere in the labyrinth of Comcast have I found any detailed explanation of this. Additionally, I can see a percent used when I bring up the recording page on the box. Is this percent used on the combination, the physical box only or what???
I also see that one can purchase additional hours of Cloud recording. OK, how does this work? Now I would have 150 hours of physical and 300 hours of Cloud???
If different recordings are in each location, can they be seen from all viewing locations?? I'm sure I've got more questions (count on it), but this is a start.
