Hi to everyone from Croatia. I got my MK808 yesterday and I flashed Finless 1.6 on it. I was wondering how can I connect multiple devices on it over OTG.

I would like to connect mouse, gamepad and maybe webcam. I tried with a USB hub but it didn't work. Any advice?

Thanks! http://minipcforums.com/wp-con.....-smile.gif

hmm... what kind of usb-hub do you use?
if you wanna connect an device you need a active usb-hub (with an extra power supply), thats the only thing what you need.

I use a very cheap 7-Port USB-Hub (11 euro by amazon) for my devices:

there are two different types of usb-hubs on the market an active and a passive usb hub. the passive usb hub get the power from the host device (here the mk808). An ordinary usb-port deliviers max. 500mA, but if you have a bunch of devices this isnt enough, e.g. a 2,5'' HDD. so you need a usb-hub with a power-adapter (thats a active usb-hub).
I have tested different usb-hubs on my tablet (10.1n) and on my mk808 and the only thing that you need is en external power source.

Something like this:

Hi Bla, I figured that out yesterday and bought one powered usb hub. The good thing it provides 2.1A/5V power to all connected usb drives so now I just supply my MK808 over the hub. :D

you must pay attation with this because the mk808 needs more than 500mA. if he runs on high performance it could be that the hub will be destroyed (e.g. the fuse of the usb-hub will blow)
