|sherds||I can't find out what the law is relative to rs-dvr in Canada . That article that i linked to above says that it is legal in the USA , and i found an article circa 2010 re australia and singapore . The european and asian providers seem to be ahead of us in this area but i am not aware of specifics such as what you can record , how long it remains on the server , cost etc.Shaw was one of the first with their Gateway system but since then they don't seemed to have had much of a creative spurt . One fabulous aspect of rs-dvr would be that you really wouldn't have to worry about hard drives failing i suppose.|

Shaw doesn't have any legal authority to make a copy of a program to distribute through VOD unless the copyright holder grants them that right. That is why, for example, CBC programs were not available until recently.

I may consider cloud based storage at some point but I literally just cleared 1.5+TB's (of 4.7ishTB's) worth of HDD space a few days ago. I can be a little bit of a digital pack rat, and have more copies of stuff than one needs but if I do, I'd buy that for sure to help ease my skeptical mind.
Currently I use 2 HDD's (of different sizes/makers) and Allway Sync to keep backups of stuff on 2 different drives. I also have a 500GB HDD in an external enclosure I keep the really important stuff on. In case of complete PC meltdown. (I know, the likelihood of losing both internal HDD's at once is slim, but there is a risk.)
But, I digress into off topic so....thanks again.

|buckycat||Isn't VOD technically a cloud service?|

|Jetranger||Licensing is of course a restrictive part of it all but to me, I just don't see the difference between my service provider holding a copy of what I want to watch or me holding it at home. Either way, I have to pay to access it. Re-writing contracts is a formality that needs to catch up with how the world of TV is evolving.|

|sherds||Dr.Dave is right .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_DVR I'm not sure why a token type system could not be set up so that if for instance i wish to record a show it would then be on Shaw's server and i could access it and delete the access (but the copy remains on the server for other clients) but if you didn't record it then you would not have access to it (except perhaps on the vod time span) but probably the copyright laws will have to be changed and personal pvr systems will be with us for quite a while .|

Amazon Glacier storage costs me $0.007 (USD) per GB per month. I spend less than 50 cents a month for the storage I use.

Would have been nice to know that back in January when the 'offer' was still available. The proof is in the pudding; give them and inch and they'll take a mile. It's only human nature to use what is available.
I personally don't like storing anything 'in the Cloud' because I don't believe it's secure. Sure, it may be 'infinitely backed up' but I don't want the risk of anyone messing with my data. I guess I'm just old fashioned.
I take it your point is that Shaw will have to put a tight cap on Cloud DVR limits, yes, gzink? I'm not 100% certain but if the idea is to record absolutely everything that is produced and then just provide long term access to all subscribers, there should be a lesser need for as much 'space' because only 2 or 3 copies of each program would need to be stored rather than possible 'millions'.
