I want powered dongles on the remote usb devices, and the hub connected to the computer to which said remote devices control.
For instance, in a HTPC PVR. I need remote control receivers in different rooms in the house, while the HTPC's themselves are in my office.
Or, remote webcams, where I can plug the dongle into the end of the webcam, and the hub connected to the webcam server.
