By support, do you mean that they, like WOW! with eSATA, allow you to use them, but will not really help you if something goes wrong since they are not an official accessory, or do they offer full tech support with the USB drives?
It's fully supported and advertised: »www.mydish.com/upgrades/products ··· storage/
They even allow you to add a USB hard drive to a non-DVR receiver to convert it into a DVR.
I think I briefly remember a tech saying something about that. I was too busy trying to deal with his rude and condescending behavior, as well as his abuse of the equipment to actually care about the things he was saying (half of the things were about illegal and barely legal sites for new release movies...).
With Dish, do you own the boxes? If you rent them, it really doesn't make economical sense for them. If you own them, it still doesn't make economical sense but it makes quite a bit more.
