    Blackberry to DirecTV

    Advertisement



    Has anyone tried to connect their usb from their blackberry to the usb port on the directv box?

    can the direcTV box detect your blackberry as an open phone line?

    Or does your Blackberry display on your TV?

    that would be hot, but if its plugged into the usb you might as well just watch on your tv instead of the 3 inch screen on a bb

    I think he's more curious if it can be used as a phone line to pull down the upcoming TV listings, not to view the TV . And no, I am pretty sure this is not possible.
    Sorry!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hey, we pinstackers aren't nothing if we aren't inventive! You don't hear Motorola or treo users trying to plug their phones into their direct tv boxes. That's what I call sweet ingenuity!

    Actually the USB ports on ur cable boxes and Satelite boxes were entended by manufacturer to be used as data port for internet which you would hook your PC to but the providers decide on a seperate box for that

    it is pretty cool they put that on there, would like to see full list of features they are capable of. I wonder if you a DVR is you could somehow download off the HD in the box through that USB

    If memory serves me right, the USB port on DVR's DirecTV and cable boxes alike are for manufacturer specific keyboards, and nothing else. With the exception of TiVo because well it rocks, and then in a Series 2 you can use a USB WiFi adapter to get updates etc, in place of a phone line.
