    Just curious, i have 2 USB Microphone for games like singstar/karaoke revolution. Is there any way to connect both and use the usb hard drive (that's where all the games are)? Has anyone got a usb hub connected to the wii and works?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks

    This probably belongs in hardware rather than hacking, but hubs work fine with instruments.

    I can confirm that 2 mics work behind a hub work for SingIt when loading the game from usb.

    I can confirm that USB hubs work for virtually everything that's not the USB HDD (I haven't gotten that to work but I haven't tested it extensively). At any given time my USB hub has a microphone, drum controller receiver, USB-Ethernet adapter, and USB keyboard hooked up; all of them work perfectly normally in any app that can use them.

    I've only tested up to 4-port hubs but anything should work.

    Note however that I advise against using powered or battery-rechargeable USB hubs as these can cause a buildup of electricity that could be dangerous to your Wii.
