'IF' what I have read in this forum is correct the USB port is not active on the RTV-5xxx devices...


My wish is that the port does become active for external storage devices such as a second harddrive.

Actually, (per the ReplayTV Web Site) a software update due out the 1st quarter of 2003 was supposed to address this by enabling the USB port to allow connection of a USB 802.11b Wireless Ethernet Adapter, but as we all know, because of the bankruptcy filing, all software updates have been (presumably) delayed to who knows when.


This obviously doesn;t address the "storage" issue, but it does address what the USB port was intended for.

Homer got Lisa a pony once, but she gave it away. It really does cost a lot of money. You should think twice before getting a pony.

Guess that that's where the phrase "pony up" originated....

Since the 1800s, ‘pony up,’ or ‘poney up,’ has been American slang for ‘to pay up.’ These words may derive from the German ‘poniren,’ ‘to pay,’ but ‘pony’ was British slang for a small amount of money in the early 19th century, probably because a pony is a small horse (not over 14 hands high), and the term to ‘pony up’ probably derived from this expression. Other uses of ‘pony’ to indicate smallness include the ‘pony’ that is a small glass or bottle of alcohol beverage and the ‘pony’ meaning a trot or crib – a translation used by students.†From the “Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins†by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997).
