use a PC or smart phone or tablet to see your contents of the cloud DVR. those recordings will be available from the Cloud DVR when you convert. the 'missing' ones are only on the DVR. You could use that DVR on one of your outlets (rental days apply) to watch the recordings not on the cloud DVR until you are ready to return the old DVR.

When I look on my PC it says I have no recordings...is there a way to move the recordings I have on my current box to the cloud? My current box is 60% full, so I have a lot that I don't want to lose.

Yes, going from a Legacy DVR to an X1 DVR, you will lose everything. You’ll be starting over fresh

since legacy DVR you can keep it and watch it til it is empty. If i recall when the box is up it doesn't need a coax connection to playback recordings. also be sure to write down your current list of series that you have (note the day of week, time, and network channel.
