<div><br>The devices do have USB ports, but they are disabled. I experimented a while back when I worked for Mediacom and the ports seem to have no functional purpose at this time (at least, nothing that Motorola is advertising).
<div>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.
