    Hi all,
    This was probably answered in about 693 BC, but I was wondering... I have my controller in USB port 1 so I can plug in my headset, and my G29 in USB port 2 on my PS4. I was wondering if it's possible to utilise a USB hub to get access to an extra port, and use a numeric number pad as a pseudo button box.
    1. Will the PS4 handle/understand a USB hub with multiple devices?
    2. Will Project Cars 2 recognise the keyboard and allow me to assign actions to the buttons?
    3. Is there an alternative method to do what I want?
    4. If a woodchuck really could chuck wood, would it even want to?
    5. What's a woodchuck?
    6. Is the answer really 42?

    Cheers, Davo_Dinkum_83

    1. Yes
    4. Ask the Woodchuck
    5. The groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as a woodchuck, is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots. The groundhog is a lowland creature of North America; it is found through much of the eastern United States, across Canada and into Alaska. It was first scientifically described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758.
    6. Yes

    I use a powered USB logitech hub as one of my PS4 USB ports is busted (upgraded to PS5 now and the hub still works)
    The hub has my wheel, and headset, and at any given time whichever controllers I am charging
