Default N64 controller USB adapter question

I want to play 4 player N64 games, but I have to run a longer USB cable from my computer so I can get all the controllers in front of the TV. Can you connect two of the Mayflash two port N64 controller USB adapters to a USB splitter (or hub), so there would only be one USB cable connected to the computer? I could just get two USB extension cables if it won't work, but I'd rather do it with one if I can. Has anybody tried this?

I would advise using a powered USB hub for best performance, and for the best experience I would get Raphnet adapters because they support Rumble Paks.

Best practice would be to use a powered USB hub, because longer cables have more resistance and using four controllers may draw too much power for a single port to provide over that distance.

I haven't tried using two adapters, but your PC should assign the second adapter its own hardware IDs, thus avoiding any internal confusion.

You are insane if you dare try it without power.
