You can extract shows from the hard drive with it installed in your PC but its not an easy process. You'd be better off hacking the Tivo to add ethernet capability so you can extract the videos to your PC via a home network. You will also need to disable encryption on the Tivo.

I dunno about copying files to the hard drive but copying file from the hard drive would be useful.

I'm thinking about the day when you swap out on old unhacked hard drive that was in your TiVo. There may be programs on the old hard drive that you never got around to watching. It would sure be nice to save those off to the PC so that they are not lost forever.

Here's a direct extraction thread (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23192&highlight=direct+extraction) if you can't or don't want to do it over the network.
