Re: [DVR] No Cloud DVR on FIOS?

Agree... I use rewind on live tv more than anything.. I don't DVR much, so I don't care for much storage past 12hrs or so.

The thing I worry about with cloud based DVR's is speed. I've used the DirecTV multi-room DVR's before and they were always very slow in response.

DirecTV receivers are dirt slow though, but if I wasn't locked into a contract I would go back to them and dump FIOS TV. FIOS TV picture isn't as good (pixelates more) and doesn't have the HD channel selection that DTV has.

I had DTV before I moved to a FIOS area.

Speed would be my main concern too. Even just using the multi-room DVR functionality - accessing the DVR from other boxes usually has a delayed response when using FFW, REW, Pause, etc. I would expect it to be much worse with a cloud-based DVR.
