Hello

Just a stupid question, but is it possible to plug the USB slave on the PC (to have a telnet, samba running) when the GP is on the cradle.
Before making a hole in the cradle I would like to be sure that it will work.

Thanks

Chris

So why do you need to put a hole in the cradle? not exactly sure what you are trying to do.

^ The mini USB plug won't go in when the GP2X is in the cradle. Ludicrous design!

I cut a notch out of my cradle for this very reason (I did the other side too, for access to the on/off switch). I have an F200 though, so I'm not using Samba/Telnet.

Anyway, the final answer is here: http://www.gp32x.de/board/index.php?showtopic=38844&hl=

(And it's a yes :))

As a small aside, I seem to remember some problems with trying to use any usb slave devices on the hub while using usbnetworking at the same time, but I could be mistaken... just keep it as a little sticky note in the back of your head if you're wondering why it doesn't work...
