What is the purpose or function of the USB port on the back of the Gateway XG1-A PVR?
It was probably intended as a future placeholder for support of USB external hard drives, but Arris never added firmware support and it remains disabled. Telus has a similar non-functional USB port on their Cisco PVRs. Still useful to power USB devices like a Chromecast.
There is power to that port so you can use it to charge any devices. It is disabled and non functional.
