I need your help with my sling adapter. I have tried two USB powered hubs, and my sling still does not power up. The USB powered hubs have been 2.0 hubs. And still does not power the sling what am I doing wrong or what should I do? The sling is working if I plug it in the back or front of the 722K DVR. It will not turn on when in the hub.
Some powered USB hubs are incompatible with the 722K, for instance I bought a GE 4-port USB 2.0 hub that didn't work as you described.
On another forum someone mentioned the D-Link DUB-H4 High Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Hub as working with their 722K so I bought one for mine and it works great to connect a Sling Adapter, Wi-Fi Adapter and EHD to the rear USB port. Others I'm sure can point out hubs they use that may cost less. Hope this helps.

Plug it directly into the DVR and leave it?

If the other USB items you want to connect to the hub aside from the Sling Adaptor have their own power source you don't need a powered hub.
Hope that help.

My internet connection is via Ethernet to a Power Line Ethernet adapter.

Powered USB hub plugged into the back of the 722k, Sling plugged into the powered USB hub, Harddrive plugged into the USB hub.
That’s it, and sling does not turn on?
Ps. I want to thank everyone also for your help!

Are you saying you need a POWERED USB hub that works? If so why do you think you need a powered USB hub?
From the setup your telling me you have you don't need a POWERED USB hub a non powered one will work just fine and will be cheaper.

Well I can confirm that a non powered USB hub works 100% fine as long as all the other devices aside form the Sling Adapter have their own power sources.
You mentioned that you tried a non powered one as well. Is this the same powered one you have just without the power being fed to it or a completely different non powered hub? If it is the same powered hub with no power attached I'm not sure it would work seeing as the hub is designed to be used with power. Even if it does from what I gather based on other posts it sounds like the 722 has issues with certain powered hubs. So maybe even without the power connected to this hub whatever the problem the 722 has with these powered hubs is still there? Just an idea..

I am just about to give up!

I think it is safe to say that your powered hub is working or you wouldn't have received that on screen message.
Can you access your external hard drive via the powered hub? That would even further confirm the powered hub isn't the problem.
Maybe the red light just doesn't work on yours and it is more of a network issue rather than a connection issue.
Can you access your DVR via a computer?

First I would like to thank everyone that has helped me in trying to get the sling to work with my powered hub. I also would like to thank dish network for having a great piece of hardware. But I have spent way to much time in trying to have my cake and eat it at the same time. It looks as the only way I can use the sling adapter is plugged directly into the back or the front of the 722k DVR. I tried three external powered USB hub and all three would not power the little red light on top of the sling. For this reason I give up! I will just have to unplug the sling when I need to use my external harddrive; or plug it in the front when I need to use both. I don’t know why this is not working.

And again, if your 'powered' USB hub doesn't have EXTERNAL power adapter (5VDC and 2 A) you HAVE non-powered hub !

Would you check what max current it could support ?
I just use an old powered Belkin hub I bought years ago.

722k saw the Slingbox, but red power light did not come on and I couldn't use it.
Decided to keep it simple...plugged the Slingbox adapter into the front USB, put the EHD in the back one, and kept the USB-powered fans connected to the powered hub as before (but that hub is not connected to the 722).
So I lose the use of the front USB, so what? If I have photos to view, I'll do it via my Blue-Ray.
My son in D.C. was watching the Arizona Diamondbacks game on his Android phone with the Sling active. Very cool.
