I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.
The following link from Michael Brown may be of some assistance at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqwIhuxe95U Take notice of the information provided in the first half on the video concerning powering and how to power Saitek products. Michael owns a company called XforcePC which specialises in selling PCs predominantly for X-Plane. Laminar Research recommends this company as the PC supplier in the USA for Xplane users.
There was a limit within X-Plane on the number of USB items that could be connected/controlled/run. I understand that limit has been raised. Not sure on the new limitation but was at 10 units some time back.
Good luck in solving your problem as I will be in the same "boat" when I relocate my system in the next few weeks and setup all of my units.
