I recently bought a PiHub (over Amazon) and it doesn’t seem to be working properly. Before I try and send it back to Amazon, I thought I’d try and see if the problem didn’t come from me plugging the PiHub poorly.
So after opening the box, I plugged the power on the PiHub and used and USB cable I had laying around to try and power the Pi. I plugged it in the bottom left plug, the one with the Raspberry logo behind it.
Then the Pi doesn’t power on.
I tried to see if my Pi was still working with another power supply, and it did work properly.
I decided to try the PiHub as a USB hub, and wasn’t able to see my external HDD through the PiHub on my computer (it did power up the HDD though).
There’s a photo of how I plugged it : http://imgur.com/11pzRGY
Is this issue common ?
