USB Port on HubStation

Postby sierra2469alpha » Thu, 13 Nov 2008 12:44 pm

Hi friends - I downloaded the Thompson user manual for what is the HubStation, however while it points out that indeed there is a USB port on the back, it doesn't indicate what it is used for.

Has anyone any ideas?

Thanks in advance, Mr. P

After extensive research I can confidently say that it's used for connecting a USB cable to your HubStation!

A supremely outstanding post of the highest degree! Equally as useful as the manual indicating that, yes indeed, there is a USB connection on the back of the HubStation.

Don't tempt me - I might actually ring StarHub and ask them. **cringe**

Cheers, P

it might be for accessing the HDD for your recorded tv programs but that function *might* be disable. i come across such usb port on other PVR such as humax and topfield.

Thanks you Sir!

And at the other end of the USB cable maybe attached an iPod or a Digital camera or even a camcorder.

It basically allows you to use the HDD for media storage and so can play direct to TV :cool:

I can confirm that the USB port at the back of the hubstation does NOTHING at all.

I called starhub and its not even connected inside.

Thomson who make the boxes do for for SKY etc back in the UK so its just standard.

I was hoping to plug in my flash drive etc but sorry as per call with them it does nowt!

Cheers
