Longer Usb Cable?

Question

Has anyone changed out the USB cable for a longer one? My desktop computer is about 15 feet away from my XBOX One and TV. I used an older USB 2.0 A to B cable that was 15 foot long and I got no video signal to the TV or PC. Power was on for the Capture box but nothing. I switch back to the shorter included cable and it works fine. I know it says USB 2.0 everywhere for the cable but is their a limitation on length, or a level of quality of cable required?

With the longer cable, there may be enough voltage drop (since the cable supplies power to the capture device) that it doesn't operate properly. If you can find a "better" cable, it may work. Or, you could try using a powered USB hub near the RGC HD Pro, then the longer USB cable will only need to carry the signal, not the power too, and that may work.

 

Let us know if you find a solution, and what it it.
