Default [Q] Using Galaxy S2 as a HTPC

Hi Guys,
My old and faithful S2 recently developed a screen crack, although its completely usable but I am not planning to use it anymore due to safety issues rather I want to use it a as a HTPC by plugging it to my Library monitor.

I am planning to connect phone to HDMI port of monitor using MHL cable

MHL cable also have a micro USB connector,

I will connect a powered USB hub to this. so that phone can charge and connect to external drives and Wireless Keyboard adapters

My Questions is that Will it work, I mean will phone be able to charge and connect to USB disks and Wireless Keyboards/air mice at the same time ?
Press thanks if my post helped you
