Powered Hub for Lime

Post by G4uvz » Tue Apr 16, 2019 5:49 pm

I may have been just unlucky but this USB 2 HUB https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-Ports-USB- ... QeS-ojv2RA
DOES NOT WORK with my Portsdown!
When used to power the Lime ONLY it will key up the Lime..but won't turn it off!
Tried it to just power a webcam and the pictures were very blocky and obviously reduced bandwith
Tried it to connect an SDR Sharp rx dongle..didn't work

But what is of rather more concern ..with the hub powered and connected to the Portsdown..it attempts to 'backfeed' the Portsdown..with the screen

staying connected when the power is disconnected!

Caveat emptor!
