USB Ports Question

I'm getting the new Roamio for Xmas. Do the USB ports in the back allow you to play movies from a USB thumb drive? If so what formats, MP4 AVI DiVX etc...

Thanks!

No, they do not.

However...

You can connect the Roamio to a local PC or other file share and play movies from that using using either TiVo desktop or the community developed PyTiVo.

Really, it is a much better solution and I think I gives you exactly what you are looking for.
