DVR Recording During Home Renovation (Can DVR be Disconnected?)

We will be renovating our home in a couple months and was wondering how we can maintain our DVR planned recordings. We will have to unplug/disconnect most of our electronics for a while. Does the DVR console need to be connected in order for our shows to continue to record? I'm assuming the satellite consoles in other rooms can be disconnected and not impact recordings - is this true?

 

I appreciate any and all feedback/help. Thank you.

the cloud DVR will have a cloud version of the recordings that will play on your home set top boxes and Roku(etc) devices.

So this means all boxes can be disconnected and our shows will continue to record in the cloud?

Hi there, u/GRBU2. This is an excellent question! The Cloud will continue to record your set programs while the physical DVR is unplugged. You are also correct that if your additional TV boxes are unplugged, this will not affect your planned recordings. I do recommend signing into your Xfinity Stream app after your cable equipment is disconnected to make sure your preferred recordings are set, just to have an extra checkpoint.
