The wiring is hard to see like that...

as mentioned, make a power strip.

so go from power boost to power strip, and from powerstrip to Pi0, from powerstrip to USB HUB, and from powerstrip to your screen.

Try that, and if that does not work, post back here again :) (with photo :P )

I had mine tested with a power strip, but only with the screen and Pi0, i did not hook up the USB hub yet...

Just bought a few of these as cheaper options to powerboost, i just have a few questions please, firstly
when wiring the full size external usb (not micro) will I now just power this from the usb hub not direct from this like with the powerboost set up?
When adding an on off switch I put the switch inbetween the v+ and power strip, It works but the on position is off and the off position is on how do I correct this?
Thanks

On this one my one I switched the battery off but you can still use it the same way to turn the load on and off (v+)
