      USB input activation?

      Does anyone know what the USB input is for or how it can be used?

      I dont know what make or model box i have - all i know is the USB slot is located behind a flip down where another card input is too.

      I'm thinking if it's possible to get it activated i can copy some films from my Sky+ to hard drive and visa versa...


      Anyone.?

      For "future service offerings" - though with these inputs/outputs having sat unused for several years now I wouldn't hold my breath. IIRC the old analogue boxes had serial ports for the same purposes but they were never used.

      No, you can't activate the USB ports (there would need to be the appropriate software/firmware in the box to do anything useful) though I believe they supply power so you could use them to power your ipod, camera etc.
