Why not the same storage space for the Stream app cloud and my home DVR?

I'm reading only 60% of my home DVR recordings are stored to cloud storage, or maybe it's my home DVR records 60% more than what's saved in the cloud, but why? Why not the same storage? I'm away, and I'm trying to watch the same things as my wife, but we don't have access to the same things?

 

For what we pay, this shouldn't be an issue.

currently the cloud DVR is limited to 60 hours where teh home DVr can record 150 hours or so. as the cloud DVR holds less as it fills up and needs room for new recordings, the older recordings are dropped off.

Re: Why not the same storage space for the Stream app cloud and my home DVR?

At 250 buck a month I should be able to watch anything at any time. Arbitrarily removing recordings is not worth my money (considering cord cutting). My daughter wanted to watch the walking dead, which I have not deleted for that reason! And she can’t get it on the Roku TV in the next room, unless I PAY more money to upgrade to amc premier. What are we paying Comcast for if everything is only available on a subscription basis? I could watch 7 million channels of nothing, that I pay for, that I don’t want to pay for but I do. All paid for, for what was good access. Where is this going and how long do I hold on? My 250 dollars every month could get me solid internet, basic cable and a slew of apps that I could access only content I wanted to pay for! Come on Comcast!
So if I delete some of my 49% full DVR (under 1/2 of the “access” I am paying for) how do I retrieve the other recordings I really want to stream? and make them available to my daughter in the next room?

the roku is accessing your cloud DVR that is currently limited to 60 hours. the home DVR holds approximately 150 hours of programming. is the recording still on your home DVR?

Yes. As I stated above. It was to be saved until viewed by the parties that wanted to view it. So ya it is still on the dvr. And not set to delete until 1year.
