HDHomeRun HDFX-4K USB connector

Just installed SiliconDust HDHomeRun HDFX-4K. I see that it has a USB connector that I have not noticed on earlier models.

What is the USB connector for?

Can it be utilized with Channels DVR?

For adding an external hard drive to be used with SiliconDust's DVR software.

No. Only SD's DVR can make use of the attached drive.

Essentially, it allows you to turn your Flex into a Scribe.

As I expected. Thank you.

I'm sure that Channels will make use of it if and when they can.
