Blame apple for the stupid single proprietary connection ... because that's who Samsung copied it from

I'll be using the tab for the children to watch movies, at it could be great to do it that way?
The trick would be to find/DIY a powered USB hub that sends power upstream to the host device as well. You'll need a powered USB hub anyways for the HDD, power would come from the cigarette lighter.
It's risky, but maybe someone could take a non-powered USB hub and just inject more power into it. I've got an old USB hub that has two connectors on the host side. One for power+data and another one for just extra power ... what would happen if I hooked up the second power-only connector to something like the Samsung charger. Probably just fry the USB hub with too much current.
Oh, and if you want the Tab to charge with data you'll need a Pershoot Kernel ROM with Any USB Charge enabled on it ...
