Cloud DVR shows zero recording hours

We have unlimited Cloud DVR storage but when we go to My Library it says we have zero (0) hours. Even basic subscribers have 20! No one at Directv seems to know how to fix it. It happens on both of our streaming sticks, one Roku and one Amazon Fire. It must be in our account somewhere. Any help?

Roku sideclick and DTV streaming app

Since I can't use the DTV streaming box, I'm using the Roku ultra. Would the sideclick scroll through the guide channels?  Could I program any of the other buttons to work on the app?  Is anyone here using it and can tell me if it is worth $30?
