ZeRO Sl MkII and powered USB hub

Is anyone running a ZeRO Sl MkII reliably through a powered USB hub? If so what is the make and model number of the hub?

Technical support say that the ZeRO Sl MkII is not designed for this and not supported for use with hubs powered or otherwise.

However, they also say that  some users are running their ZeRO Sl MkII's through a powered hub reliably. As I need both USB ports

on my Macbook Pro for other equipment I would appreciate any help on this.

Thanks in anticipation.

All the best.
