      DRX890W rear USB connector

      I had been using the rear USB connector on my previous (none wifi) box to keep my tablet's battery charged.
      Having recently replaced this box with a DRX890W I now find that my tablet is not charging.
      I have tried a forced software download but it hasn't made any difference.
      Has anyone else had this problem or is my new box defective?

      I guess as the only use for the rear USB is for the Sky wifi adaptor the newer boxes having wifi built in no longer need the USB port active.

      It was active on the DRX780 but as far as I'm aware this box did not support the Sky mini wifi adaptor.

      Re: DRX890W rear USB connector

      USB ports tend to vary on the amount of power they can actually supply. Like if I plug my iPad into the USB port on my laptop it says unable to charge, likewise if I plug it into my iPhone charger I get the same message, But if I plug it into a desktop machine or the bigger iPad charger it charges no problem. A tablet battery takes quite a bit of power to charge, it is likely the new Sky box just isn't up to it! Dosent mean it is faulty though.
