The Official Kinect Thread for Xbox One - Page 7

post #181 of 354
No official word. I called Microsoft because i was considering purchasing an xbox one but my equipment rack is 23' from the screen. All they said is nothing is available and that the previous extension cables wouldn't work with the new kinnect. Once they sort out an extender cable or wireless solution i'll be on board for the xbox one.
post #182 of 354
I'd be surprised if they ever have a wireless solution. Since it would introduce more latency plus the data rate is up to 2Gb/s. I know there are solutions that can handle the high speeds but I would think any extra latency would not be wanted when using Kinect.

so crowded in the main thread so thought it'd be easier to find the Xbox Fitness video over here...

Very interesting looking game, and the Kinect use is cool. I knew it could detect your hand opening and closing, but it can also detect holding up two fingers! Looks bizarre as hell, but could be a cool use of the new Kinect.

the TV mount will be available even before the new Kinect is available!

This is maddening that we're nearly 2 weeks from launch and Microsoft doesn't have an extension cable solution?! Forgive me for the noobish question, but what is unique about USB 3.0? Am I correct in my assumption that is the true hang-up?

What's unique is their connector. I wouldn't expect an extension cable to materialize by launch or from MS at all. My guess is that some 3rd party will manage to license the connector and offer a cable.

Any word on a maximum distance that you can sit from the Kinect?

I haven't heard any. They've been mostly concerned with reassuring people that they can use Kinect in small rooms, which was a problem with the 360 version. The assumption would be that you could always move closer.

I had just asked this in another Kinect thread. W/ the 360, the Kinect didn't work well for me, as it wouldn't pick me up very well while sitting on my couch 15' from the screen. Though it was OK for some games where you had to stand and/or jump around in front of the screen, I'm really looking forward to sitting on my couch and getting into some Battlefield while using the head-tracking features of the Kinect.

the PDP Kinect mount is out in stores apparently... I don't know if they are an official Xbox One vendor this time around. They were for the 360 and the PDP Kinect mount for the 360 Kinect was fabulous. so much so that there were plenty of fake PDP mounts (which performed terribly; I had to return a fake back to Amazon and got a real one at Best Buy).

For those looking for dimensions of the console and Kinect 2.0:

Here you go. Let the home entertainment designing begin!

Xbox One dimensions (LxWxH): 13.1" x 10.8" x 3.1"

Kinect 2.0 dimensions (LxWxH): 9.8" x 2.6" x 2.63"

Now that I have the dimensions I can see that I can't put them side by side in my TV unit like I wanted. Any reason I couldn't put the kinect on top of the console?

Other than blocking cooling vents I can't think of any.
post #195 of 354
Would blocking that much of the cooling vent make a difference?

Unknown. The massive cooling fan is located at the front of the top vent. I don't know what direction it blows in. If it's outward it probably doesn't matter at all. Seems more likely to be inward.

I'm going to place my Kinect on top of my center channel, the XB1 will go in its own alcove where my HTPC currently resides.

I have a similar problem as to where to place my Kinect 2; I'd like to put it where my center channel is currently located (just below the screen of my TV on a TV-stand-type A/V equipment cabinet). I'm keeping my 360 and I want to keep its Kinect hooked up, mostly for games with voice commands like Skyrim, Mass Effect 3 and Rocksmith 2014, so I don't so much care about its camera. It's currently mounted on top of my television; I suppose that I can get a Kinect 2 TV-top mounting and push the 360 Kinect to the side.

My center channel doesn't have a flat surface on which to place the Kinect and even if it did I'd worry a bit about the sound from it interfering with the operation of the Kinect.

Lucky, I can't find it anywhere!

Amazon says that it releases on December 4th and Gamestop says November 20th.
post #201 of 354
For some reason Gamestop gets some of their things early. I got the Nyko Charging Base for the XBOne from Gamestop. I received it a week ago from them while everyone else is showing a release date of the 22nd.

Thanks. That should help with things.

Anyone had any luck with setting it on top of the center channel? I have projector screen- so can't use a tv clip- and if it needs to be centered I'm not sure what I can do besides set it on top of the center channel on the media cabinet or find a wall mount which I'd rather not do.

it has a standard camera mount underneath so you could use a tripod or similar device if you want. something with a screw mount. like a gorillapod.
