Default [Venue 7/8] USB OTG Confirmed

Hey guys,

Just letting you know, I can confirm that USB OTG works out of the box for these tablets, been using my USB key perfectly fine. This feature can be particularly useful if you have a USB hard drive or any USB devices you want to connect. The wired XBOX 360 controller also works but need to be remapped to work apparently.

Attached are some screenshots.

Cheers,
deltatux

I've been wanting to use an OBDlink SX (obd2 to USB.) interface for automotive use. But plugging it into my otg adapter the tablet does not seem to recognize or respond. A USB trackball worked right off the bat though.

Could it be the device itself? Do other USB devices over your OTG? I've only tested USB keys and XBOX 360 controllers so far...

Does it need any special software or it will work out of the box via file explorer
