Hi &  welcome a collier

 

In short Nothing.

 

It is not currently enabled and is there for possible future use.

I believe it's soon going to be enabled for using a keyboard as part of the accessibility update that is currently being rolled out to retail boxes.

Re: What about other sockets ?

All fairly self explanitory:

 

Arial in:  there for connecting to your arial

Arial out:  allows you to propagate the RF signal to another device, eg the TV,  to enalbe this connection you need to enable RF Passthrough on the youview box

TV SCART:  a SCART connector for passing the video/audio signal to your TV, generally for compatibility with older TVs that do not have HDMI

SPDIF:  a digital audio output, allowing you to pass the audio signal to a compatible Amp/Hi-fi system.  Personally I take my sound source from the TV set to the external sound system as that is then common for all inputs to theTV and not just the youview box.

Ethernet:  The boxes link to the ethernet, for catch-up etc

USB: Side and back of the youview box are (currently) unsed USB ports

Power:  The power supply for the box.
