I have 29 hours worth of shows on my DVR that is from shows only I watch. The best time for me to watch these is while I'm at work, but they don't show up in the app. These are correctly recorded on my DVR, they are 3 different shows, from 3 different networks. If I try to search for them through the app, it only gives me the opportunity to buy each episode, but I can watch them for free from my home TV.
only the most recent 60 hours is on the cloud DVR. if you were more current in your viewing that would not be an issue. as you catch up at home then you can watch current episodes on the smaller cloud DVR.
