    The Boxee Tv used cloud DVR storage. I had around one hundred HD recordings in the cloud before they eliminated the feature. It worked but they had issues like only stereo playback of the recordings.

    I wouldn't mind a cloud storage option with TiVo. For instance if you could create a Season Pass and have the option to store the recordings locally or in the cloud. That way you could just use cloud storage for the less important SPs and use local storage for the more important ones.

    Really depends on your ISP, with FIOS you have acceptable upload/download speads and good over all data limits.

    For someone like me with only access to substandard DSL Cloud storage is useless. First at best my upload speed is only 0.36 Mbs and many evenings download speed drops to under 1.0 Mbs. So even if I could get some HD content into the cloud (it would have to record locally then copy the file to the cloud) I would not be able to watch it in HD most evenings.

    I doubt either would work for me then, unless they just give you a set amount of space. I still have stuff on my Roamio from December when I first bought it, and it wouldn't be the first time I just let an entire season of a show record (September through May) and binge watch the entire season in a weekend.
    The cloud based DVRs I've seen proposed tends to only keep shows for so long.
