USB port on YouView box

Conversation Starter

At the back of the YouView box which has just been installed and is working well, there is a usb port. What can this port be used for? recording to an external drive or playing media from a external drive?


Apparently you can use it as a battery charger for a portable device, that's about it for now! :D
At present it's for engineering purposes only but who knows what a future firmware update might bring.:D

Thanks for your reply. A usb port that is kinda underwhelming....

I use it to charge my PlayStation 3 controllers :)

Thanks for all your replies - far more helpful and informative than the webpage. Hopefully they will update the firmware so the usb port is a little more useful than charging.
