The STB is controlled thru the serial port on the backend, so turning off
USB 2.0 will not help. Plus you must have USB 2.0 on for HD-PVR, otherwise
MythTV will die. At least it did on my backend, until I turned on USB 2.0.

Although, I'm still having other problems with USB, it's on stable on my
backend. I'm getting a new motherboard/CPU for that issue.
