LG, or any of the other DirecTV STB makers have nothing to do with this issue.
DirecTV is the sole reason why none of their receivers have Firewire. The widely circulated rumor is that the MPAA has applied significant pressure to DirecTV not to allow HD recording, which Firewire enables.

Supposedly they signed some agreement with MPAA. Dish Network did also but to less extent. Why do you think they are challenging Plug and Play agreement. They claim some other stuff but they know (especially D*) that it will bite them when in April cable boxes will allow recording thru firewire.

Except for OTA, the AVHDD is dead. The MPAA has won.
