    I'm interested in buying a Time Capsule because I want to be able to share my video library with all the computers throughout my house. I currently have two full HDs full of movies and Time Capsule only has one usb port, if I get a usb hub will it recognize multiple hard drives?

    Yes. Should work fine. Keep in mind you'll need a powered hub if you have bus powered drives.

    I have an AEBS with 2 bus-powered drives and a printer attached through a powered hub.

    Well of the external hard drives have a power brick, then you dont need a powered USB Hub.
