There is no USB but there is HDMI, s-video, component, and composite, out. Is there a way to copy from the internal hard drive to an external hard drive using these outputs instead of having to dub to DVD and then copy to an external HDD using a computer?

Directly copy from the DVDR to an external HDD = no.

The fastest option is to high-speed dub the content to DVD-RW then use a PC to copy the folder structure to an external HDD (or use ImgBurn on a PC to rip an ISO copy of the disk and store it on an external HDD).

The slowest option would be to use a PC capture card/device hooked up to the analog output of the DVDR and play the content in real time into the capture device.

A third option would be to buy a dual-tuner HDHR-3 for your network and capture the content directly to the PC with recording software -- you get it in HD/5.1 that way.

No matter how you slice it, if you want the video on an external HDD you are going to have to involve a PC.
