Anyone Using a USB Hub on Hopper
I currently have two EHDs plugged into my Hopper, so both rear USB ports are in use. I want to plug in the Slingbox as well, but don't want to expose the wires by using the front USB port. Has anybody had luck using a USB hub with the Hopper. If so, which make and model?

Yup, i'm using one for similar reasons (EHD, wi-fi dongle, and sling adapter but didn't want to make things ugly by having things plugged into the front). Not sure the model i used... i just picked up the cheapest one i could find and it worked fine. I even have one slot free for when the OTA adapter becomes available! The other interesting in thing is that, even though Dish says that the EHD must have external power, mine works with and w/o external power (if the USB source can power it) just fine on my Hopper...

If you get a powered USB hub, does the EHD still need to have external power?
seems like it would be kind of redundant if at least one is powered. I'm assuming the powered USB hub would take the load off the hopper itself.
