Essentially, no you can't. That USB port doesn't do anything. I think it was put there for future upgrades/features.

You can copy FTA programmes i believe from Sky+ by putting the hard drive from the Sky+ unit in your PC, but you can't do it for other Sky channels as they are encrypted.

im sure the sky bloke said you could back it up but grrr i dont remember how

The Sky bloke told me that it was there so when they needed to swap a faulty box they could back up the recorded programs onto the replacement box.

You can copy any programs from your Sky+ to DVD - not sure on direct form box to PC
