Beware of cheap hubs! I had two Freecom DVB-T USB tuners plugged into a cheap
unpowered hub and it would do something bad after a few days. The USB system
would effectively be dead and required a reboot to revive. The tuners are now
plugged into the ports on the back (via extension cables, they're too fat to
fit directly) and things are fine. The hub is in the spares box since I think
it will be fine for mouse/keyboard etc.
