-<​lead>​**Local DVR storage** is where your recordings will be saved. Our DVR doesn'​t use "the cloud" or remote locations for storing programs, but instead keeps local copies on your home network, allowing you to store them as long as you wish. Your storage device can be an HDHomeRun SCRIBE or SERVIO, a PC, a Mac, a NAS, or an Android TV set top box like an NVIDIA Shield. Because the DVR storage device handles a lot of video data, we strongly recommend using a wired ethernet connection for your recording device, just like you would with an HDHomeRun tuner.  +<​lead>​**Local DVR storage** is where your recordings will be saved.

Both the HDHomeRun SCRIBE and HDHomeRun SERVIO are self-contained DVR storage devices, and run a full version of the DVR software. They do not require an additional PC or NAS to operate.:
  
-  * **[[:​SCRIBE]]** - (as a DUO/2-tuner or QUATRO/​4-tuner) includes both the tuning hardware of a normal HDHomeRun device along with an internal hard drive and the DVR storage software. In addition to recording from its own internal tuners, the SCRIBE can also record from other HDHomeRun devices on your network. This combination unit can be a good starting point for new users, or be used to expand an existing HDHomeRun device cluster when you want to add tuners and DVR storage at the same time.+  * **[[:SCRIBE|HDHomeRun ​SCRIBE]]** - (as a DUO/2-tuner or QUATRO/​4-tuner) includes both the tuning hardware of a normal HDHomeRun device along with an internal hard drive and the DVR storage software.
