Anyone have info on the 942s USB 2.0 Hard drive backup feature?

So, anyone have further details...i.e. the approved HD list the guys talked about, or an estimated date when the feature will be activated via software update, etc.?

On the other hand, they did say that this would support larger disk drives, so you could keep more stuff on disk, anyway.

BTW, Mark, where do I sign up...?

I'm guessing they will detect you have a hard drive connected, and dial up on the phone to tell E* you have it, and then charge you $4/mo for it. They can't charge $5, otherwise people would just disconnect their phone lines.

Then the USB disk could be keyed to that ID#. That way, receivers could be replaced, but the key would still work with a newly activated box.
Is E* doing anything like that? Got me.
