    Short answer is Nope. The usb is disabled to avoid "potential legal complications". You can theoretically connect a computer via the firewire and record in real time, however. (ie: hit play on the dvr and record as it plays onto a computer's hard drive. Slow and cumbersome at best, and I'm not even 100% positive you can do THAT anymore).
