The devices do have USB ports, but they are disabled.  I experimented a

The firewire ports, however, are active and you can pull a stream from
them.  Of course, I've only heard of this working on a Mac, but I'm sure
there is a Linux project out there somewhere working on it.  Apparently
Windows doesn't have the necessary capability in the kernel.
