    Is there any way to copy off the recorded programs?

    The USB port isn't used for anything on the 921.

    Mark, do you think it will ever be activated for say digital camera use?

    I think that with the 721 if you hooked up a keyboard to it, you could type in names in the search field. Not sure if that works with the 921.

    Not with the 921. Maybe with the 942.

    I couldn't get the keyboard working on the 921. Nor a mouse, although it was powered.

    Since we've established that it's powered, the fish tank deal should work. Sweet.

    Gawd. Some people are easily amused if they can be satisfied by a fish tank instead of what was should be there. :D

    I'd still like to know what possible reason they could've had for dropping this insanely simple feature (USB keyboard). :mad:

    Oh - one other note - how smart is it to have a can of water sitting on your 921?
    I'd put it somewhere else.

    Better watch it, Charlie might decide to charge you 4.99/month for that feature to be turned on.

    The Fish Tank enable fee...:lol:

    History over the past 12+ months tells us that when Eldon fixes (or turns on) something, at least 2 other things get broken. A working fish tank is not worth having OTA recordings no longer working, or no HD anymore - and with these hacks making the code changes it certainly is possible.

    Misinformation. No extra fee per fish tank, but you MUST subscribe to the locals for it to work. :p
