Definition: cloud DVR

(cloud Digital Video Recorder) Saving TV shows in the service provider's datacenter rather than in the DVR/set-top box by the TV. Regular DVRs have a hard drive storage limit, and movies must be periodically deleted to make room. They also have a simultaneous recording limit. For example, if the local DVR has two tuners, only one show can be recorded while another is watched. Cloud DVRs enable customers to store more content and record more shows that air at the same time. See DVR.
