Can anyone recommend a USB hub for use with Vive tracker dongles

Hi, we have got 8 trackers working on our PC, but this uses up every usb port we have, before I go out and buy a hub to do this, I was wondering if anyone has used one that they can recommend.

No-one? Is there something obvious I am missing here?

Sorry I missed this. I think any 3.x/2.x hub is fine but sent this question onto the tracker team to see if they have any recommendations.

Just heard back from the tracker team... They don't have any specific recommendations and said that any hub should work. If you plan on also using other devices such as hard drives on the hub, I'd possibly recommend getting an externally powered hub.

Thanks David! Just wanted to make sure. The results I am getting from 8 trackers using Ikinema Orion are quite incredible, will post some videos when I can.
