I have a problem with that connection too. I wish the CPx USB connection could ride on the through the mount cabling so you didn't have to put a hub at the CP5 to get it's connection up to the top of the mount with the rest of the USB devices.
I am thinking about running an Ethernet cable with the USB3 extension cable, back to the laptop. That way you don't have an extra USB hub at the base or a USB cable dragging up to a hub on the top. In my case it is a UPBV2 that rides up top.

Hello. I have a question on the Mach2 internal cabling, probably more-so directed at the folks as AP. The specs state a USB 3.0 and DC power cable that are pre-installed. My question is: Is there any feasibility or future plan to also running an ethernet cable internally along with the USB and DC Power? While I am sure the robustness of the GTOCP5 wifi is adequate, I personally have always opted to minimize connections that rely on wireless (Cat6 ethernet to every room in the home, etc). I see that the GTOCP5 does have the ethernet port on it, and ideally it would be nice to connect a patch cable from the GTOCP5 ethernet port to this hypothetical ethernet jack that would run internal, and then another patch to a mini PC. Again, may or may not be feasible or planned, but wanted to ask to see if there were previous discussions or potential future plans to do this. Thanks.
