Sorry if this is addressed elsewhere, but I couldn't find it. Has anyone else received the notice from DirecTV saying they are turning on the USB ports soon? I received on last week (about 10/3) and then called them today. They confirmed that was true but could not give me a specific date but he "thought" it was supposed to occur in November. I asked him if it required new hardware and he put me on hold for about 5 minutes and came back and said no, that it is intended to work with all existing DirecTV TiVos that have USB ports. Is this part of the 6.3 update that everyone is talking about? If not maybe it is why they are being unresponsive to problems. If they have another build coming out soon they may address the locking up issues there.
