Xbox One Kinect Extender - Page 10

post #271 of 282
Looks like we may be able to use an extension, if the power supply for the Windows version is sold separately. Maybe just with an active USB 3.0 extension? Although I only see a 15 footer on Monoprice... frown.gif

Microsoft is about to release Kinect 2.0 for Windows. And it comes with a power supply and a standard USB connection for the PC... which means you will soon be able to extend the Kinect for Xbox One as well... It looks like a similar setup to the original Kinect for PC. The proprietary cable will plug into the hub. The USB 3.0 cable plugs in on the other end and it's the standard USB 3.0 that you can extend...

This seems like the first positive step forward.

 

I think the only way MS are going to sell this separately though is if we put pressure on them because otherwise I can't see why they would sell this separately

Unless the xbox one will take the sensor input on the usb port and not the dedicated port the box would work other wise one would still have to convert it back from usb to the special kinect usb plug.

 

If all that makes any sense at all. one could use that box to extend it but you would still have a standard usb plug at the xbox end.

That's very true but I think because the Kinnect connection is essentially a USB 3 connection with added power it shouldn't be an issue but I stand to be corrected because there is only one way to find out.

you wouldn't need the pressure. when the kinect power supply first came out for the 360, it was $39.99 from Microsoft. But once it was on the market, the Chinese companies copied it and you could buy it for $9-19 at places like Amazon. I'm sure the Chinese will do it once again when the new hub is out.

the "special" port is not really special. and it'd be like with the 360. If you bought the 360 S, there was no power supply with the kinect and you had to plug it into the dedicated port. However, if you did have the power supply, the Kinect on the 360 worked on the regular USBv2 port as well for the 360 S. you could entirely skip the "special" port on the 360 S and get the Kinect to work.

I wonder how much this is going to cost.

I'd be willing to bet that Monoprices solution is going to be a power brick and usb 3 extender. Nothing new here, but that above kind of confirms its sorta possible.

So if you need to convert this to ethernet there is still not going to be any option because there are only converters for USB 1 and USB 2, and the USB 2 ones are still super expensive.

EDIT: I missed this post because I haven't been following the thread.

So there is a way to extend USB 3.0 without using USB 3.0 cabling--but it requires fiber ?!

I guess the question is does having the Kinect for Window 2.0 and the power hub help make using that very expensive fiber device easier than without it.

How did we get to _serial_ data for a gaming device requiring fiber...nuts.

I am beginning to think this can't be done. Nobody out there has done it yet? Seems odd. I am getting to the point where I am considering selling the Kinect.

What is the point of trying to sell it ? You wont get much for it right now as everyone has one.....

I'm in the same boat, sitting in the box with the plastic still on it....

Has their been any new rumor here ?
