    I'm going to be setting up an Edge 2 printer to a win7 computer running Omega 4.0 I'll be using the newer Gerber Parallel to USB cable. I'm going to need to do a bit of rearranging to make things work and its going to be kind of a long run (guessing around 24Ft) and i have 2 questions.
    can anyone tell me max cable length using extensions and a powered usb hub?
    also would it be best to put the hub at the beginning or end of the run?

    I think you might have problems at that length. Why don't you hook it up to a laptop?

    I don't have another licensed copy of omega to run it off of. the only other copies of omega i have are running on the 2 design stations and I'd hate to be dragging our designers out onto the production floor lol. was hoping to run a usb cable into the front office and plug into one of the design stations.

    Been a month so I'm sure you already solved this problem but I recently did the same thing, but I'm running Omega 5 on Win 7.

    I've got a 25ft usb cable running from the end of the Gerber parallel to a powered usb at the end of the run between the cables and the computer.

    Works great.
