Has anyone tried to use the USB ports on the 9242?
I just had my 9242 installed Friday, went for rental rather than purchase seeing that people have had alot of complaints about this fairly new machine. I haven't had much problems with audio, though I am plugging my audio via Toslink optical cable directly to my television, which controls the signal between my XBOX360 and 9242. Keep in mind I'm using speakers that are primarily for desktop computers, but the Logitech Z-5500 are SICK!!! I didn't bother with a Home Theatre, simply because I didn't want to spend much more and also realized that my Logitech's hold up well compared to the Home Theatre in a Box systems. I have this all plugged into my Sony Bravia KDL46W3000 (Merry XMAS to Me!!!)
HD is by far superior, and SD, well.... I'm using a Sony, so my review on that is kind of biased since SD plays well with my Bravia. As for the 2nd SD line on the box, I have yet to buy a CRT TV to test it out.
I do have one question.... This is my very first PVR, and I noticed that the 9242 has USB inputs. Is there any way to take advantage of this feature? I thought it'd be really cool if I can back up all my Habs games onto a external hard drive or even on to DVD or DVD-DL.
