Identical saved recordings on different devices.

I have two AT&T streaming devices in my home.  When a recording is saved on one device it displays on the other device that was not used to save the recording.  How do I separate the two?

That’s not how recordings work with DIRECTV STREAM. They are stored in the cloud and every device logged in sees the recordings. There is no way to separate them. DIRECTV satellite only had this feature because recordings were stored on the receiver’s local hard drive.

Right. You don't separate them. The recordings are not stored on your local devices but rather in the "cloud". All of your devices and DirecTV Stream apps will see the same recordings.
