    on say a d12 or r15. if one doesnt have a phone line to use but does have internet. is it possible ( i already doubt it) to use an adapter for ethernet cable to usb adapter to hook up to the ird to be able to do a call back so i can order ppvs?

    ive read that the d11i uses it but only because it uses a special dish setup. im not looking to connect to the internet or anything just want to be able to do a call back with out having to pay for a phone service that i most likely wont use.

    as an afterthought. if it aint possible, what is the usb port for? it definetly aint used for the am21 since the d12 already has an off air antenna port.
    i really dont think its meant for charging up ur ipod. :lol:

    For control the box via USB-Serial adapter (see DTVcontrol program ) or for debugging same way.

    The D12's antenna port is a feedthrough; there is no OTA tuner.
