Box named DVR not a DVR

This just keeps getting better and better.  I finally find out what equipment I have, and it just gets more confusing.

PXD01ANI, named "DVR 1".  Is this a joke by the installer?

PXD01ANI, named "Office".  OK, that's correct.

PX022ANM, named "Living Room".  Thought this was a DVR since it's the biggest box.

PX051AEI, named "Master Bedroom".  OK, that's correct.

 

So, do I have a DVR or not?  I'm guessing NO, since I seem to have Cloud DVR.

I figured as much, but cute joke for the installation tech to name one of them "DVR 1" and make me look for it.

swap any of the boxes except the px02 (xg2) for an xg1 DVR (if you have 4k TV ask for a version 4 - has no front clock and uses a solid state storage drive). Home DVR will increase the number of hours available to have in home. DVR (physical) is $10/month. do you have a charge for DVR on your bill now?

There doesn't appear to be a DVR charge on my bill.  I'm fine not having one "in-home", it's just odd that the tech would name it that, making me think I did.

It's easy to rename them to whatever you want.
