Virgin - DVD/HDD - PC

I'm about to buy a DVD recorder with HDD. I currently only have Virgin cable as TV source, will it be possible to (a) record from V+ box to HDD and (b) transfer from HDD to PC (without burning to DVD)? Also, any recommendations on extras to look out for?

I regularly record from V+ to DVD so I can't see any reasaon why it will not work to the hard drive instead of disc it will be no different to recording from TV via scart

And regarding (b), what leads/sockets are generally used (would getting a DVD/HDD with usb socket be simplest?) and does the HDD in the DVD/HDD appear as another drive in My Computer?
