Hi all I just finished getting everything all set up and added a kewl
USB digital satelite hub to my system. It works fine only problem is
that it does not for some reason play nice with the usb ports on the
2005fpw monitor that I have. It seems that you have to choose to use
the Hub or the usb ports available on the monitor it does not want to
recognize them both. Does anyone have any idea what I may be doing
wrong at all. Thanks in advance....Andy

Try plugging it into the first USB slot on the back of your system.
That is where I put mine.

So when the digital satellite hub is plugged into one of your computer's
USB ports you can't use any of the 2005FPW's USB ports?

Did you install any drivers?

Are you seeing some kind of error message or do things simply not
work?

Is the digital satellite hub self-powered?

Thats because the usb ports on the Monitor are usb 1 and not usb 2

The 2005FPW is [supposed to be] equipped with USB 2.0 ports.
