    Longest USB

    What is the longest USB cable that can be used with the kinect. I have a 49 foot cord rated at 480Mbps but the kinect doesn't work with that cord. It shows as connected but does nothing when I give a command. If I unplug the 49 foot cord and plug directly to the computer it works fine.

    I never tried personnally, but I read some reports saying it doesn't work with the Kinect.

    Is there already a plug in for kinect v2?
    not yet, support for kinect v2 is on my TODO list

    Any other suggestions Spud? Only need it to go about 30' but can't fish USB. Needs to go through cat6 or an RG6U that is already prewired.

    worth a try, but I doubt even #1 would work well for kinect

    in the description it says
    Note: the distance and adapters may affect the performance of some devices down to USB 1.1 speed
    and the kinect is very picky about bandwith and speed

    Yeah, there are these types:

    http://www.amazon.com/HDE-over-Exten.../dp/B004XYEXX4

    They just make use of the cat5 wires to extend the USB, so you have to use the cable point to point; not go through an ethernet switch.

    And there are these also:

    http://www.amazon.com/Digi-AW-USB-2-...gi+anywhereusb

    Which is ip-based, so technically you can put the other end anywhere the network reaches (even to another country if you vpn it) or thru a wifi connection, etc.

    But I seriously doubt #2 works for Kinect.

    I would use a powered USB cable. It might work without but why chance it? The Kinect seems to be a bit picky about USB stuff.

    Yes. The Kinect can't run AT ALL without a Kinect power supply.

    It doesn't have its own power source. I have this one with the optional power supply: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_i...seq=1&format=2
