Default FiOS DVR - USB port - external hard drives

I got my HD DVR box a little over two years ago. At the time, the installer said that the onboard USB port should be activated soon and that it would be possible to use a USB hard drive for additional storage.

Has this happened yet? If not, does anyone know if or when it might?

pretty sure the USB on the box is still unactive and doubt itll ever be active. I also know theres no way to upgrade storage in the box as the size is written into the firmware.

What a shame. You can get a 1TB drive for less than $100 and I hear rumors that 2TB drives will be out this Summer at around the same price.
