Any experiences with USB extenders?

  • Hello Monomistas,

    I want to run my 40h in a stage context with no laptop nearby (at least not in USB cable range) and found out there are USB extenders using cat5 cables... Has anyone made any experiences with that type of device? Or do you have any other suggestions? Wireless preferred, of course... But wireless USB seems a little unpredictable. There are some USB-over-cat5 solutions offering a DC jack on the remote end, where one could plug a battery pack. Specs say they work up to 60-100m. But: USB1.1 seems to be the only way. Is there any objection with that?

    Thanks for any advice,
