Has anyone ever tried to use a long (50-60') USB extension on one of the DVR units to extend mouse controls?  I'd like to run a video feed from the DVR to a large screen TV in the other room but won't be able to control it without a mouse.  I was wondering if a product like this (link below) might work.

Hello, 

 

I have tried that before and sometimes it works and sometimes it will not. Normally I use a wireless mouse like the Microsoft 3500 series mouse and it seems to work fine.

How far will that 3500 mouse go?  Will it go through a wall or two at about 30' to DVR?

I don't know exactly, but you can just try it out.
