Powered USB Hub for PS4/PC/XIM
« on: 01:35 AM - 10/12/15 »
Hi all,

Would it be possible to have a recommendation for a powered USB hub please? I have tried both a KVM (iogear) and two manual tekrepulbik USB switches and both configs have caused problems.

My research tells me that a powered USB hub is what I seek, I just have no idea what would be the best one to buy.

These are my devices;

XIM4
PS4
Logitech G19 Keyboard
Razer Mamba
Astro A40
PC

I'd like to be able to share the Mouse and Keyboard between my PC and PS4 with the press of a button. The Astro A40 is plugged directly into the PS4 and I use a different headset for the PC.

Any advice please?

I use a Roccat Apuri with my Xims (3, Edge, 4). Doubles up as a mouse bungee.

Also, if you are gong to be using a KVM you will want to enable USB hotswapping in Managers Globals menu.
