Maybe a strange question...

Is it best (e.g., less cross-talk, better over longer runs, more shielding) to run a long VGA cable from the relay box to the relay expansion and a short USB cable to the expansion hub? Or would it be better to run a long USB cable from the hub to the relay expansion and a short VGA cable / coupling from the relay expansion to the box?

Or does it really just depend 100% on the quality of the cables?

Thanks!

Whatever is after the hub doesn't carry the bus signal.

But both the USB cable to the relay expansion and the SVGA cable to the relay box are after the (expansion) hub.
