    Hi all, I'm having troubles with my HR-22 and AM-21 combination :(
    as described here: http://tinyurl.com/csdu7b

    Is there anyway to test the functionality of the USB ports on my HR22, I'm guessing that there isn't but thought I'd ask all you smart fellas here.


    Could I plug in a thumbdrive with some pictures on it and browse it, or something like that? I'm trying to eliminate the possibility
    that the HR-22 is actually causing the problems.

    [long way around] Isn't there a USB to serial adapter that will control the receivers from a PC?

    You're both right but other than establishing the basic USB function I'm not sure how helpful that would be in testing.

    Testing the USB port was the goal of the OP and if the AM-21 isn't working, the only other documented testing option is serial control.
