But why have USB support and not use it this way... oh wait. D* saw the writing on the wall on how people we able to pull video off of there machines and said "Not on my watch". This might slow people down but not stop it.

Why not have the ability to use a usb hub if wanted or use the cable for people who are not network ready. Best of both worlds.

They wont find a way to copy it off because to get HMO features you will be required to have the latest version of software that will include copy protection that will make video playback after extraction a no go. Reason for it is the copy protection can only be unlocked by a hardware chip on an activated Tivo. Now this system is being used for quality control and ease of installation and support. But this copy protection won't stop you as far as how long you want to keep a recording but it will stop you from sharing a show across a network using non activated boxes. Now you can still record to DVD using the Save To VCR option but as far as playback it will only playback on activated devices which will be only DirecTV DVRs in good standing under your account.
