Looking at images of the connectors (and the OEM info that Paul got) it suggests that the bottom port on the vega is PDMI, this is the same port that the Dell Streak uses but not the same port that the Samsung Galaxy Tab uses (That looks to be just a flipped iPhone connector)

Does anyone have the Dell Streak sync cable, because Advent say there will be a docking station with USB host, that suggests to me that if it is pin compatible with PDMI then the USB2 lines will be connected. Meaning we could get a straight PDMI->usb host cable much like this:

The Slacker G2 supposedly uses PDMI, there is a dock for it http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B001O83X5Q/

Nice. I want to see what this connector is so I can look at making my dock. Going to send off my CAD files for a quote and find out what I'm using to power this as well as hacking in USB connections.

You found anything in the code about software enable on the USB port? Weird that there is no power on it.

I wonder if they've had set the usb2 in the pdmi for host mode? if you have a female type A to female type A adaptor try plugging a usb memory stick into the cable?

Just to double check though, you sure nothing came up on logcat or dmesg when you plugged the cable into a USB host?

FYI the ViewSonic ViewPad 10S dock works with the Advent Vega and can still be purchased for about £25
