Can you connect a USB hard drive to a Roku directly?

I'm currently looking at solutions to record & stream HDTV recordings and I like the idea of the Roku but I have a question. Since the Roku has both USB & network ports is it possible to connect an external USB hard drive directly to the Roku somehow and play back HDTV recordings on it?

No, it's not currently possible, and if it were, you wouldn't be able to do HD streams since it's a USB 1.1 port limited to 12MBps
