I am trying to connect my NVidia Sheild to a powered usb hub with no luck at this point.

Heres what I'm using:
Powered Hub

USB to Ethernet

OTG to USB

Male to Male USB




So I am taking the OTG to USB and connecting it to the Sheild OTG port. From there I have a Male to Male USB connecting the OTG to USB to the Powered usb hub. When I do this I can see that the Sheild's power light is orange which indicates to me that it is getting power and not acting as the USB Host for the Hub?

I did notice when I tried to use an air mouse directly with the OTG to USB it works as it should but not when it's connected to the powered usb hub instead, then nothing works (just charging). Also my ethernet adapter doesnt work via the powered usb hub or the OTG to USB.

BTW this whole physical setup worked just fine (plug and play) with both android MK808 and MK908. I was surprised that the Sheild isnt picking this up as well.

Can anyone tell me if I have incompatable hardware and if so what is compatable? Also I do not have ROOT access to the Sheild...yet, could that be the issue?

Many thanks in advance.

Chris
