Officially they are for future enhancements.

They can be used currently for networking if you hack your box.

By "DVR Tivo" do you mean Directivo, or any Series 2 tivo, as in Digital
Video Recorder?

I haven't hacked my box and the usb port is used with an Ethernet
network adapter to link my two Tivo's. Works great.

If you have a DirecTiVo (DirecTV receiver with TiVO) - then noting.
'Future use.'

If you have a standalone TiVo then they're used to connect Ethernet or
WiFi adapters to network the unit.
