Rewind Capability cloud dvr
Fiosornot
Newbie

 Before I upgrade to the cloud DVR service I want to be certain that rewind buffering capability is still there. Currently I have two DVR‘s and 6ST bees. I can change from current and previous channels and rewind on both up to one hour. 

Does that ability still exist with the cloud DVR service or is it only because I have two DVR’s with multiple tuners

 I just want to be sure we can rewind previous and current channels before I commit to the upgrade 

Thanks

First off, Fios does not use cloud DVR.

The newer systems use a video server that is local to your location.
You do retain the capability to rewind a local channel on the remote boxes.

But it is not quite the same as with local DVRs as the tuners are shared.

Thanks 

so I would have a video server in my home. 

How is the rewind different in this setup?

It would work pretty much the same as your current set up.

You may not always be able to go between channels and rewind depending on how many tuners are in use (both recording and viewing).
