Here is what I think is happening:
You are using the wrong mini-USB cable L That confused me at first …
You need the mini-A to mini-B cable I gave the part number for.
This is a “special” cable that tells the OTG port to switch modes. The hubs I suggested have mini-USB input ports on them.
That is how you connect keyboards and what not to the Overo (Per the WiKI). The hub should have EXTERNAL power. (per the WiKI)
As far as I know you should be able to just connect your USB-A to Mini-B cable from the Tobi Console connector to your PC
and it should just work. Windows and Linux will install a ‘virtual’ serial port. Linux will call it “TTYx” or something. It depends on you
flavor of Linux. My windows Xp system wanted a special driver. I can tell you where to down load it …
If the Tobi isn’t detected by the Operating system, just unplug the USB connector and plug it in again.
You realize that you need the “Desktop Image” to use the keyboard, mouse, etc connected to the hub. The Overo ships
with a “Console” image. Which uses the Console USB port on the Overo.
