    Soundman...I was hoping you would chime in....I could pick your brain for hours on other Audio related questions...but I'll stay on topic.

    Do you have suggestions on a hub perhaps that has worked better than others? I tried to stick with a name brand (belkin) in hopes of avoiding this...thanks again for trying to help.

    powered hubs seem to be hit or miss(or maybe i am thinking of the powered extension cables?). i haven't seen too many bad things about the carnetix powered hub in the mp3car store, but haven't really looked at it too much.

    otherwise, if you have a lot of low power devices, a non powered hub will work just as good.

    i ran a cheap non powered, 4 port hub with my older 945 board--had gps dongle, usb aux port, wifi dongle, and bluetooth on it, and almost everything worked just as good as if it had been plugged directly into the motherboard. i only had issues with the usb aux port, but that was not the hubs fault-- i still have trouble getting those ports to work when plugged directly into the motherboard...

    so i guess a better question is what do you need the hub for?

    for the audio stuff, post your questions when you get a chance or pm me.

    Thanks again Soundman. First, the hub is only currently for a couple of items that I need access to while driving (cd/dvd drive which has it's own power, and the charger for my iphone...right now that's all that's connected).

    BUT here is a weird update. Let me first give the disclaimer that I messed with this for several hours over the weekend without getting it to work properly. However today at lunch, I plugged it back in and restarted just for grins, and it worked. I restarted several times and it's restarting without hanging.....so not sure why it's intermittent and what changed, but for now it's working.....weird.

    In regard to the sound questions....I have several that I would like to pick your brain on. I've been in computers for quite some time, and Car audio enthusiest forever....so I never thought there would be so many obstacles to combine the two.....but like I said, I'll keep this thread on topic and PM you or hit you up in one of the other sub-forums.

    May be completly difernet for you but consider an issue I had a while back.

    When it has worked or not worked has there been any diference with if your phone is pluged in or not?

    I had issues with Win 7 having my iPhone connected via a hub. If I could tell you if the problem was it starting or shutting down with or w/o the phone pluged in I would, but as soon as I figured out it had to do with the phone and the hub I stoped using the hub for the phone and now no more problems. The hub works fine with other devices.
