Just to confirm what others have already said, I have:
- Xbox One S
- Xbox One Kinect
- Xbox One S USB Kinect Adapter (the one they send free which also works for Windows 10)
- Tripp Lite USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Active Repeater Cable (AB M/M) 25-ft. (U328-025)
- am in the preview program with latest update
OS version 10.0.14393.1027
Kinect version 4.0.3917.0:7
Everything is working (although I don't honestly use the Kinect much). It sees me....Cortana hears me...You do very specifically have to plug into USB on the back next to the HDMI in port...This is the ONLY port that works and it tells you this if you try any other port.
This would be the cheapest way to get to around 31.5' total (with the Kinect cable itself being around 6.5')...(this assumes you already had an Xbox One before the S and got an S later...) If someone never owned an Xbox One before and picked up the S as a first time Xbox One owner, they could just register a friend's Xbox One who doesn't care, then register the Kinect and S and get the USB adapter free. Most people probably don't register anything...

Reason: corrected length of Kinect cable
