DirecTV Cable Box D12 100

Additionally, I would ask about the USB port on the satellite cable box. How can this be used to enhance the user experience. Much thanks in advance for an informed reply.

antenna----->(ANT IN)converter(TO TV)----->(OFF AIR IN)Directv receiver(OUT TO TV)----->TV
This will not integrate your antenna channels into your Directv guide; you will have to use the converter's remote in order to tune those channels.
As far as the USB port, it will power a laptop fan, but I never noticed that the D12 got so hot that it needed cooling. The only other use of the USB port is for serial control for changing channels on a Home Theater Personal Computer(HTPC) instead of an IR Blaster:
