This has not been brought up in a while, I don't think. Can someone from Replay please comment on when (at least very roughly), we'll get USB supported on our 5000's? I don't dare hope that Alcatraz would do that...
I think that the firewire ports in the original ReplayTV and the USB 1.1 port in the 5K series are code name "v" in the ReplayTV development lexicon. And just like in the original 2000 series, will be removed in future series of the 5K. The code name for such removal is "Bursting".
The USB pots on my new Series 2 TiVo seem to work just fine.
Although, I really must put together the curmudgeon's ReplayTV/TiVo comparison. I've seen far too many that try to be constructive to both. I should write mine (that essentially says that they both suck in comprehensive, albeit non-overlapping fashion).
