What protection is there that some hacker can't download new firmware over the internet to every D* receiver in order to hack into the home network computers?
Is there some D* feature that uploads a listing of D* DVR recordings? While a top 10 list of the television programs most often recorded by users seems cool, the potential ability to collect this information bothers me.
What information, if any is being collected or can be collected and uploaded back to the D* home office?

DirecTV has always collected (anonymous) viewer information from connected receivers, and have disclosed this many times. You can even go online to your DirecTV.com account and Opt Out of this data collection.
