This is a very popular feature in the Sky+ & SkyHD PVR's from Sky here in
the UK as it  enables them to offer the ability to rewind 'Live TV' in an
ad-hoc way (at least to the point where you switched over to the currently
viewed channel)
I agree it must put extra wear & stress on the hard drive and yes the energy
usage must be higher.
