How to activate USB's on Hughes HDVR2 and what are they for?

I am interested in expanding the capabilities of my 2 Hughes HDTV2 series with 6.2 software and am wondering about the 2 USB ports on the back. According to what I can find out they are labeled as expansion/future use. I would love to connect an external USB hdd to increase the 35 hour capacity but don't have a clue what the ports are connected to. I have a laptop and started heading down the hack road and realized I can't burn TiVo movies recorded to that (laptop) without an enormous feat. Could I connect a USB cable from the TiVo to the laptop and get an input to the laptop to record DVDs on the laptop or can I somehow activate (or are they already activated) the ports and save or record the programs already recorded? I have been told to just buy a DVD recorder but I am space limited as I live on my boat and there isn't room for another salt shaker let alone more shore TV gear.

Any suggestions?
