Having some difficulty with the USB Host Controller requirements for the Azure Kinect. Trying to connect multiple Kinects to a single computer.

From the Azure Kinect faqs: "For the Azure Kinect DK on Windows, Intel, Texas Instruments (TI), and Renesas are the only host controllers that are supported. The Azure Kinect SDK on Windows platforms relies on a unified container ID, and it must span USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices so that the SDK can find the depth, color, and audio devices that are physically located on the same device."

Our Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Hero Which I believe has USB ports that meet the Kinect's requirements.

Here is the Device Manager of the setup: 131694-device-manager.png

Will this meet the needs of having multiple Azure Kinects setup?
If not, will an additional card adapter, such as this one meet the requirements?

Much appreciated.
