Nope the only thing that works in the USB port is a keyboard (wireless or wired)

Re: USB Wireless Connection On Tivo Box

Before splashing out on Home-plugs or an adaptor, make sure you know what extra functionality you actually get. Having the connection only enables the ability to use your phone\tablet as a remote and start programs playing back on the TiVo, which I doubt probably justifies the cost.
