      The only was I know of that viewing photos off a hard drive onto your TV is via a Xbox 360, it just cannot be done with a Sky+ box.

      The external USB ports on the Sky+ box I think the OP is reffering to aren't turned on and so we have no idea what the designers had in mind when they put them onto the box, I doubt I was to allow external drive access though.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Best bet is to buy an "Apple TV" box. That streams photos/movies from iTunes on your computer and feeds your TV direct.

      The hard drive is encrypted. Recorded Content is decrypted as/when you watch it by the box's crypto module. This means you can't interact with the data by mounting the drive in a desktop computer. In other words: No you can't.
