    Can anyone recommend a good USB hub that works properly with the Raspberry Pi B and Retropie? I’ve tried a few up to and including an Amazon Basics powered hub (AmazonBasics 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub with 5V/2.5A power adapter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DQFGH80/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_xQpTwbWE7952P). None seem to work well. At best, things like keyboards are only recognized if they’re plugged into the hub at startup. Changing things around after that never works. At worst, peripherals such as USB gamepads aren’t recognized whether they’re plugged in at boot time or any time thereafter. Or is this a matter of the USB drivers for the Pi itself, and if so are there better ones that can be applied?


    do the same peripherals work fine if plugged in directly to your pi? none of these ‘sound’ like hub issues, especially if it’s externally powered.

    there’s a compatibility list on http://elinux.org/RPi_Powered_USB_Hubs but that’s more aimed at people powering their pis from the powered USB hub. i wouldn’t expect the hubs themselves to have issues just powering USB devices, if they are externally powered, but maybe it’s possible.

    i use a belkin slim 4 port powered hub. works fine.
