Difference between the USB ports?
Is there any difference between the USB ports and the USB togo port? Besides the obvious difference in size?

RE: Difference between the USB ports?
I cannot recall exactly but think its been asked before so i'll have a search.

I use the full size side port from memory when i used my external usb hdd with the player.

personally i'd use the otg port only for very limited use as early models had an issue with it breaking thatvwas rectified but it always leaves a bit of a query so full size with powered hub if not enough power. Also look into Android as an os and how it reacts to usb hdd plus kodi may require them mounting for access.
edit:
see here for usb hdd connection and watch for usb3 hdd drawing more power than usb2 can supply. a powered usb hub for a few bucks is a good investment.
