Hi there

I've got an issue that cropped up recently where my controllers (Xbox One controller via USB, and Playstation DS3 controller via USB (using SCP Server to have it identified as an Xbox 360 controller), are becoming un-responsive, sometimes after just 20 seconds or so of being plugged in.

Using USBDeview I can see that the controllers are still considered to be connected, and the lights remain on on the controllers at all times during the issue, as well as no device disconnected/connected sound from windows. However to get any input from the controllers I have to try and unplug and replug the USB cable in mid-game.

I am plugged into a powered USB hub (9v) by Amazon Basics, which I had no issues with prior to about a week ago, I am unable to plug directly into my computer as my USB ports got fried about a year ago, and I had to get a PCI-E>USB Port which only has 4 ports which are all used up.

The controller still has this issue even when it is the only device plugged into the USB Hub.

Are there anyways I can find out what is causing this issue through something like the Windows Event Viewer or something similar?

Many thanks
