    I was curious if anyone uses or has tried to use and external 4 port USB hub with external power. I would like to throw a USB hub into the mix so I dont have to go behind the TV and plug in the controllers. Ideally I could run a USB hub from the Pi (port0) to inside my entertainment center and when I want to play I could plug in my USB game pads there into the 4 port USB hub.

    Thank you for your time and help,

    I use the pihub : http://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pihub

    It delivers the right amount of electrical power for my Pi while being able to plug 3 controllers, and it works like a charm

    if you’re just plugging in controllers to it, then any powered hub should be fine, but there is a compatibility list here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Powered_USB_Hubs

    i use this belkin one to power 4 iBuffalo USB controllers: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Ultra-Powered-Power-Supply/dp/B0061RSACG
