I currently use 10 Saitek devices on my flight sim, hooking this lot up is quite frustrating. Powering them is equally frustrating, there is a lot of different hubs which I have tried with poor results, bad build quality, power loss etc.

Has Saitek thought about making a powered hub which would handle these devices. It would certainley be a big advantage.:)

Hi, we did do a big range of powered USB hubs, but sadly we do not make them any more.
look on line and read the reviews

Hi,

i use 3 radio panels, 1 multi panel, 1 switch panel, 1 BIP, Saitek Cessna yoke, rudder, trim and 1 TPM. As non Saitek product, I use a Pro Pit Panel from Virtual Reality Insight and a track IR so a total of 12 USB to be connected all connected on a USB 2.0 Hub.

The issue I had was that the Radio panels turned randomly off with no possibility to restart them except a boot of the computer.

After quick search, it appears that the USB power management of Windows turns off automatically USB devices to save power.

Take a look at this procedure to know how to turn this function off as this is actually turned on by defaut!

After fixing this problem, I do not have any problems anymore and all is running fine.

Make sure your USB Hub is 2.0, well powered and check the USB power management of Windows is turned off.
