Movie updates - where does it go?


Well-known member
I have an Alto 4T, Strato 12T, and now a Terra 24T.

When an update for a movie comes out, does the update overwrite the original movie if the movie is on the Alto or Strato? Or does the update get routed to the Terra, and the prior copy deleted off the Strato or Alto? I know this is less likely for HD quality movies on the Alto, but I included it to be thourough.

Have to hear from K, but everything goes first to a Terra is you have one. That would be my guess...

You might be able to notice if you look at the remaining space on each device before doing the upgrade.
