The host box would typically be the bigger of the 2 types of boxes with a clock on the front. The recordings are stored on this box and would be accessible by any of the other Contour 2 client boxes in the home.
Hi Sethm1, we'd like to take the opportunity to go over your account in greater detail, as well as the receivers that are provisioned on your account. Do you mind forwarding this over to our email@example.com team? We will need to authenticate you for security purposes. Typically, Contour 2 is a whole-home system; this means that the two boxes communicate with each other. -Kevin M. Cox Support Forum Moderator
