Purpose of USB port

Just got my new black box set up and working OK from wifi but wondering what the USB port is for?  Tried it with a USB stick containing video but it does not show up anywhere.

Hi @Anonymous User


Thanks for your post and welcome to the forum.  In order to use the USB port to play media files it's necessary to sideload a Roku app onto the box, so as it stands, to the best of my knowledge, it serves no purpose.


For more info on enabling dev mode and sideloading have a search for Plex and NOW TV.
