Hi all,
new to this forum and have been reading this thread with interest, looks like some cables work others not. So whats the latest on what works seen threads which say the above works then a link to 2 or more items, already tried a cheap 1 off ebay and that didn't work so looks like I will have to pay a bit more but want to get the right one that works.
Thanks in advance
Regards Malcolm

New here and have looking at this post with interest, Have tried to reset the settings in the bios, however one thing to be aware of is it disconnects your camera if you then go to try and take a picture, syas no camera attached, when you reset the bios setting for usb / otg from pci to the original setting the camera is back again have tried this a number of times to confirm.

It's the same hardware as a linx 8, so should be no different.

I purchased the earlier linked Ali Express style hub, but on eBay from a UK seller. The tablet alone could not power my USB DVD drive. Using this hub the DVD drive works and the tablet also charges (slowly).

I find that mine works better with the switch in position 3, not position 2 as instructed. The light on the hub remains red rather than blue but the tablet charges and USB devices work fine. In position 2 the tablet charges but does not always see USB devices connected to the hub.

I am running Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 8.1) with the Anniversary Update installed.
