Only 2 of 3 External Drives Mount in Shield
Hi all, Just got my Sheild TV today and I have 3 HDDs attached through a USB Hub. The problem I have is only two show at any one time? All three have connected at some point but then another drops off all drives are WD. Hope you can help, many thanks! D

Are your HDDs externally powered, or do they receive power from the USB hub? Also, is the USB hub externally powered?

Hi Zacbec, Thanks for the response. All 3 external drives are powered but the hub is not. As I mentioned above all three have mounted, but only ever two at a time. Very frustrating! Hope you can help? Cheers

My thought was that maybe there was a power issue where the drives were trying to draw too much power from the hub if all three were active at once. I'm not sure what, if any, power draw a hub would see from an externally powered HDD. I've never tried mounting three drives from a hub on the Shield TV, so I don't know if the issue is with the hub or with the Shield. I'm hoping someone else on the forum can give us some anecdotal evidence one way or the other.

I believe it is a limitation of the SATV.
