Google is a little over the top about copyright. Google dvr will work only on adopted storage (encrypted) and the recordings are saved in the os protected section. That means the recordings can only be watched on the same device. Also no easy mean to extract your recordings unless you root the device to get access to the protected area.

From what I read on a article, cm has some issues to work out with usb hard drive adopted storage.

MicroSD slot for DVR storage, up to 512GB (USB
functionality coming soon) ?
MicroSD could be a little slow and expensive for OTA recording. I'd have some concerns with longevity as well. An external USB hard drive would be the better option. And why the 512MB limit? Then there is the ATSC 1.0 tuner. Why not ATSC 3.0? When combined with storage encryption, those will kill any possibility of me purchasing of one of these units at any price. That assumes a Canadian version becomes available.
