Need a hub - help

    I've just bought a HD Fox T2 for my girlfriend.

    I'm wondering though before I splash out some more cash, whats the best USB hubs to use with this box? Didnt know this box only had 1 port :(
    I want to connect an Edimax Wifi dongle & probably a Buffalo ministation HDD (USB powered).

    Will I need a powered hub or will a USB powered one work?
    Anyone running this kind of setup?

    Yeah I read that but i would like some clear advice on whether i'll need externally powered hub or if a bus powered one will do the job for this setup.

    Why muck about? Get one that has the option of external power and has been demonstrated to work in these threads.

    Can confirm that the cheapo non-powered Trust hub mention in the thread linked above works fine. I've got 2 usb drives and a wifi dongle in mine
