I have a Lacy 160G laptop external HDD attached to it..It works fine... The format of the HDD should also be FAT32. The structure of the files should be Album/MP3
For a HDD that big look for software on the internet which can convert it from NTSF to FAT32 it should work perfectly.
The only thing I haven't been able to get working is videofiles...on the same HDD. Anyone got an idea?

SOURCE: export via USB to hard drive
The USB ports on this unit are non-functional unless you hack it. There are several methods of doing so, but the easiest is probably to purchase an upgrade kit from dvrupgrade.com. You can either purchase a replacement hard drive, or software to do it yourself.
After you do this, the USB ports can be used to connect a network device, and you can use different software programs to export and import programming. You will also have other features you normally wouldn't have on the stock unit. Good resources on this topic are tivocommunity.com and dealdatabase.com.

From my experience, this isn't possible due to copyright reasons. If your DVR has a USB port, it is usually meant for flashing the BIOS with updates by a technician. Since this is a rented DVR from DirecTV, they probably have the USB port disabled since they can update the DVR from their end. All you can do is search Google using your model number since we would be liable for guiding you how to "hack" into DirecTV's property.
