    No drivers so it wouldn't output sound through the USB.

    As shades228 said, there is no drivers on the HR24 that would allow the bluetooth to function. Right now the only device that works is the add on OTA tuner AM21 and the newer version AM21N.

    The usb port is also good for charging usb devices like iPhones, iPads, etc. And you can use it to power a cooling pad, if needed, under your DVR.

    How long does it take to charge an iPad? Overnight?

    I use it to power the wireless gaming adapter that has my DVR, as well as the entire Whole Home system on my wifi.

    It doesn't work well for charging an iPad, doesn't put out enough current (just like trying to use an iPhone charger for an iPad). It will work fine for iPhones, iPods, and other devices though (most active 3D glasses for 3D TVs).
