I'm using dibusb driver, version CVS 9.April 2005 since a while very
I noticed a lot of system instabilities when I habe an USB (2.0) hub between
my notebook and the VisionPlus receiver. But it works perfectly when I
connect it directly to the computer. I tried 6 different hubs, one of them
was very very expensive. All of them have a power supply and in all cases I
connected only my Logitech mouse to the same hub.
Problem symptoms occur sporadically, sometimes many together, sometimes single
symptoms and sometimes the computer runs stable for hours.
- Some buttons from the keyboard do not work
- WLAN gets a connection to the AP but cannot load any website
- mplayer cannot find audio track on DVD
- trancode cannot read the whole TOC of a DVD
- System is very slow
- dibusb driver reports timeouts on epin0
- If an USB harddisk is attached to the same hub, it looses often data but I
did not write anything to the disk.
Are you aware of those problems? Is a better solution available than avoiding
the use of USB hubs?
