No - The HDD space that Sky anytime is not accessible by the end-user, nor does it contribute to the total disk space.

What they SHOULD do is allow content to be transferred onto portable devices for storage, with the ONLY way to play it back is via the STB. It's easy enough to do with DRM.

You can't at the moment. All Sky+ / SkyHD / Sky+HD boxes have a USB port on the front. The content on the HDD is already DRM locked for subscription content.

In theory, this is what you should be able to do:

There should be an option to transfer content to a portable device (external HDD, USB stick) to free space on the HDD. Then if you want to watch it, you have to connect it back to the box.

I hate Sky Anytime. It's half full of films I can't access as I don't suscribe to the movie channel. All that untapped hard drive space!,

if you have a archos you can record onto that then store on pc or external hard drive
