What is the USB connector on the back of the Directv Stream box for?

What is the USB connector on the back of the Directv Stream box for? I believe the Ethernet connector is odd, since it's for streaming, but the usb? If it cannot be used to  hook up an external hard drive to save programs, then what is it for? Anyone?

I've used most of the streaming services and have some questions about DirectTV stream.

Want to see if I'm missing something on some of these things or if they could be addressed as they are quite simple and exist on nearly all other streaming platforms. So far I'm pleased with this service and am moving from Hulu as I travel around the US quite a bit and it's EXTREMELY irritating tha

Persistent Audio Sync Issues (Roku / DIRECTV STREAM)

Everything I try to watch on DIRECTV STREAM for Roku has an audio / video sync issue where the video lags at least 3s behind the audio. Often the delay is much worse. ”Everything” is not an exaggeration. This issue occurred with NBC, ABC, Fox, CBS, HBO, ESPN, Paramount, MTV, BabyTV, NBC

Cloud DVR

If you choose to record a LIVE show (CMA's for example) and the show is scheduled from 8pm- 11pm .. with the potential to go over a few minutes, the Recording SHOULD finish the show being recorded.
