First of all, I am new here so if this is in the wrong section or if I have asked anything deemed inappropriate for this forum I do apologize and request that this thread be handled as needed, whether it be closed or moved to a more appropriate section etc.
My wife and I just upgraded our cable package with Comcast so we now get DVR. The box we received was a Motorola DCT3412. Upon receiving it I checked out what was on the back and I noticed a USB port, among some other ports of course. I am curious as to what the purpose of the USB port is, or what it is capable of doing. Is it possible to plug an external hard drive to the USB port for more storage of video? Or are there other intentions for the port, or any other port. The guy I talked to at Circuit City when we purchased our new tv didn't know anything about it either and said I may have the right idea.
Any information on this would be helpful so I thank you all for your time and response.
