    Cube U30GT-2, 10.1 Tablet , Jellybean 4.2.2, rooted.

    Hi

    I have searched and tried to resolve this for myself before asking.

    This is my first Android Tablet.

    One of the first things I did was connect a mouse and keyboard individually via the micro usb dock on the tablet using an OTG cable, both the mouse and keyboard work.

    As I wanted to use them together I first used a non-powered 4 x USB hub.

    While the small led light lit on the USB hub, anything connected to it would not work.

    I then purchased a powered 4 x USB hub, thinking this would resolve the issue.

    I connected the mouse and keyboard the same way using the OTC cable but with no success, I can't connect and use a mouse and keyboard together using the powered USB hub.

    What am I doing wrong??

    I don't think the OTG can cope with more than one serial input.

    You would be better going the blutooth route to have keyboard and mouse working simultaneously.

    Thanks Davoid,

    I feel stupid writing this but I hadn't realised I could use a blu-tooth mouse and keyboard at the same time.
