cloud DVR - Computer Definition
Saving TV shows in the service provider's datacenter rather than on the customer's digital video recorder (DVR). A local DVR has a hard drive storage limit and generally only two tuners, which means movies must be occasionally deleted to make room, and only one program can be recorded if another is being watched at the same time. A cloud DVR exceeds these limitations, enabling customers to store more content and record more shows that air at the same time. See DVR.
