Turning 4250HD into a PVR

I see there's a USB and a Firewire port on the back of the 4250hd box. Is there a way to hook an external hdd and turn it into a PVR?

There used to be a way to connect via firewire to a computer and then on the computer capture the video like a HTPC. I think they have since encrypted many of the channels and so you cannot get the video from those channels.

As far as I know / have read there is no way to do what you are asking.

That disappoints me on a whole new level.

 

Thank you for your help.
