    There was an article about this a few months ago. I'll try and dig it up....

    Here it is:

    My suggestion is get a multi TT hub, preferably a powered one..

    Here's a thread with confirmed multi tt hubs.

    I have the F4U017 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub with power adapter, but only use two of the seven ports on it.
