I have a (first generation) BananaPi and a USB hub "D-Link DUB-H7 USB 2.0 Hub aktiv 7-Port 480Mbps".
Currently, I have two AC/DC adapters to power them:
But I'd like to get rid of one adapter.
My first attempt was this:
Solution B: Doesn't work
But when I try it, the BPi won't power up. I can power up the BPi via the USB Hub host port, but in the moment I plug in the "USB data" cable, the BPi switches off. Why's that? I do not think the USB hub is backpowering or do something nasty.
Ok, my next attempt would be this:
Solution C: ???
But I would need to buy an USB OTG Y cable. Before I do so, I would like to hear if it will be going to work, or if I need another solution.
Any help is highly appreciated :-)
