    If direct tv dvr's (with tivo) can not be networked
    then why do they have usb ports?
    The manual says nothing about the usb ports,
    Just "for future use".
    does this mean that sometime in the future you will have this option?

    Tivo designed the recording side of the hardware and put in USB ports like they have in their stand alone models. If DirecTV decides to upgrade the software to version 4, then the ports will be activated.
