I just ordered an upgrade for my receiver to switch from a 622 to a 722, so I could use the sling adapter. The sling adapter plugs into rear usb port, and I also have an EHD that I want to plug in also. Does anyone know what I would require to do this? Would a simple usb hub suffice, or should I use a switch? Are there any particular models recommended?

You should be able to connect each device at either ends of the receiver. The USB port on the front is located behind the door on the right side of the receiver looking directly at the front of it.
