Can I run a USB hub off the mini HDMI port on my Yoga 3? One of my USB ports is broken and the other does not make a good connection to my USB cable from the hub. If this does not work is there a solution other than getting a new mother board?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Running the HDMI port for USB function would not be possible since HDMI are designed for video /audio output compared to charging and data/media transfer that USB offers.
If you have a Yoga 3 1470 for example and both USB 3.0 on both sides is not an option, then the AC-in port can be used as a USB 2.0when you are not charging (AC in port doubles as USB port same for the Yoga 3 11).
The other USB 3.0 is not attached to the motherboard but instead, have its I/O daughterboard connected into.
Hope this help answer your query.
