10 feet / 3 meters USB extension cord

Post by Remon » Wed Jul 11, 2018 10:23 pm

Can a safely use 10 feet / 3 meters USB extension cord or will it cause problems? I want to use it in between my RTL-SDR dongle and my Raspberry Pi running rtl_tcp. My fear is it will generate buffer overflows.

I'm thinking of buying an USB 3 cable because these are rated for higher bandwidth.
