I recently learned that the use of the usb port on the slingbox 500 was deactivated because there weren't many people using it to sling media files. I thing it is such a waste to have a feature on a product and not allow for it to be used regardless of how many people are using it. If you spend my money on something you should be able to use every feature on that item that you paid for. I don't know about you but I think it is well worth it to be able to watch other video clips, slide shows of pictures that you have taken, movies that you have created, or what ever the case may be, other than just watching TV with your slingbox. If enough people make it know to the sling team the MyMedia feature will be reactivated and we can get back to using the full extent of the slingbox that we paid for.
