    Hi all,

    I have an Xbox 360 and a PS3, my TV is wall mounted and I have the equipment quite away from the TV and all the cables are buried in the wall.

    I bought a PS Move starter kit the other day and I am probably going to get kinect for the Xbox my question is before I bust my wall open again and go and buy 4 active USB repeater leads is there any way to connect the Kinect and playstion camera to one USB cable via a hub of some sort? They will never be on at the same time so there is no chance of the Kinect being plugged into the PS3 etc

    I think I know what the answer is I am just short of space in my cable run.

    I'd say give it a go - a cheap USB hub isn't hard to find, you might get lucky. :D

    I just thought I would need some sort of backwards hub on the other end, I don't think there is such a thing!

    I wont be able to get at the back of the equipment to swap the cable over so its not an option unfortunately

    Thanks for the links though I will have to try and find something in the UK like that
