Hey all,

I'm in the process of converting my setup from a desk-focus to a chair-focus, so I'll be building a mounting solution to put my HOTAS, mouse/KB, plus a few other USB devices on my chair.

I've poked around and seen this thread, ZeroChill's solution, and Blackstar's chair. I've got my general design concept down, but I also want to take all the cords coming off the chair and run them through a braid (wire loom style?) off the back of the chair and to the PC tower. To reduce the size of the braid, I've been toying with the idea of using a USB hub to reduce it down to 1 USB cable, which would then run, with the headphone and mic audio, DIY buttkicker cables, and maybe power, through the braid.

My question is, if i use a USB hub (while keeping each device's total cord length <5m) could there be an input lag/latency issue? I consider myself relatively well-versed in technology like this, I'm just not sure if this will cause a lag or if there will be no discernible difference (because, you know, digital and all...)

Any help or thoughts will be much appreciated!

For reference, here is the list of devices that will be on the chair:
Logitech G502 mouse (USB)
Corsair K95 (USB)
TrackIR TrackClip Pro (USB/Power only)
Thrustmaster Warthog Stick (USB)
Thrustmaster Warthog Throttle (USB)
XBOX One gamepad (USB)
Headset (Audio Line)
Mic (Audio Line)
