Microsoft has CLEARLY said this. Never mind if you use the Kinect and you have the right setup (HDMI CEC compatible gear) and use the TV features, From what I read, even not playing games with the Kinect, it's a impressive device. Microsoft has 0 plans on not supporting it....
The only FLAW with this new pricing point with out the Kinect is not everyone will have the Kinect, meaning Devs will take the shortcut route and not support the Kinect features in every game. Yea, some games it would suck but, if it worked REALLY well, it might be impressive.
Let's keep this on topic here, this is not a discussions on If Microsoft is going to support the Kinect, it's about finding away to extend this cable for the Kinect so we can use it in our home theaters/ A/V /Game rooms...
Just wish MS would allow companies like Monoprice sell cables, It's not a tech problem, it's a license problem..

The other problem is the Hugh Jass connector... could pose some cable pulling issues.
We never know, MAYBE (someone with extra money burning a hole in their pocket could grab one for testing) it will work but, till someone tests, we don't know...as Microsoft will not say anything on this, I have TRIED many times already.
I looked over my Kinect 2.0 cable, besides the ends, it's not much bigger than a good HDMI cable for thickness.
