sgreene978 - If you were to take apart the big box - the DVR itself you would find a hard drive. Some people have actually replaced their hard drive to get more capacity.
The confusion comes into play with the other STBs. They offer the same recording capabilities as the DVR itself, but have no hard drive. They do this by communicating with the DVR and using the physical hard drive in that box.
In summary, a DVR has a physical hard drive an STB does not. That is why it is said that the hard drive in an STB is virtual.
While totally against the TOS, customers have removed and replaced the hard drive in their Uverse DVRs
