X1 Recording From The Beginning Of A Program In Progress

I've recently switched from a well known satellite provider to X1. Overall I'm enjoying the service but am disappointed to learn that my DVR cannot record going back to the beginning of a program I'm already watching. I saw this explanation (below) in the Support site...

 

>> "If you have a built-in DVR, what happens will depend on the DVR you have. When recording a program in-progress, some built-in DVRs will include the portion of the program stored in the buffer. Others are only able to start the recording from the time you press Record."

 

As far as I know, my DVR records in the cloud. My question is, which DVR would I need to record what's stored in the buffer?

a non-X! legacy 2 tuner DVR still records the buffer in the home. no cloud DVR can record buffer (so far).
