If I recorded a show and frequently re-watched the recording because I enjoy it, I'd only be limited to 1 year of enjoyment? I'm curious if Cox included this 1-year limit in their fine print. You know, right next to "Enjoy your shows whenever you please. With our DVR service, TV is on your time..."
If you have a small set-top box with a Pano Wi-Fi gateway, then most likely your recordings are saved in the cloud. Cloud DVR recordings are only kept for a maximum of one year, even if Until space is needed is selected. If you are seeing 50% full then something else is going on. Are your recording set for 1 year or Until space is needed?
