Recommended is eye level, however in my particular situation the wall mount added an extra foot of depth closer to me, so I got more depth with my situation but at about knee level for a bigger playing space...I don't think its affected my accuracy...not sure though.

You'll have to experiment, everyone's playspace is different.

Yup you can move it while you are in the tuner, in there you can also adjust the tilt manually, depending on what games you are playing, you will either want more of your feet in there or arms (raise your arms straight up after you place it to make sure its still tracking your hands/wrists).

The different lighting is for facial recognition, some games I have ran into where it keeps signing you in and out due to lighting issues, by calibrating for the lighting, it will fix that issue Smile

You don't calibrate for different lighting situations. The only thing you can calibrate is where Kinect can see. You can either tilt it up or down to make sure it sees enough of you. The lighting conditions are for Kinect ID only. The 360 suggests running Kinect ID in multiple lighting conditions so it can easily recognize you and log you in.

I'd go with Kinect Adventures first playing Rally Ball. It's a blast to play and really shows how Kinect can work.

Here's game types for Adventures.

Game types

* 20,000 Leaks

In 20,000 Leaks, the player's avatar is in a glass cube underwater. The player positions his or her limbs and head to plug cracks in the cube. As difficulty increases, up to five leaks must be plugged at a time to earn Adventure pins. Each game consists of three waves, which end when time expires or when all leaks are plugged. Extra time left over at the end of each wave is added to the Adventure pin total.[2][3]

* River Rush

In River Rush, one or two players stand in a raft and work together to pick up the adventure pins scattered throughout the winding rapids. The raft is controlled by leaning left or right to steer, and by jumping to jump the raft.[2]

* Rally Ball

Rally Ball is a Breakout clone, but also similar to handball. The player uses his or her limbs and head to hit balls at blocks and targets which are at the end of a virtual hallway. When the targets are hit, the ball splits into multiple balls which can be handled simultaneously. Each game consists of three rounds, each with a different set of blocks and targets. Rounds end when time expires or when all blocks and targets are destroyed. Extra time left over at the end of each round is added to the Adventure pin total.[4]

* Reflex Ridge

Reflex Ridge is a track-and-field inspired game, but played on a moving platform in an environment similar to a wooden roller coaster. One or two players (in split screen) race on a platform, jump over hurdles, lean away from obstacles, and duck to avoid hitting their heads on low beams. Jumping in place makes the platform move faster along its rail. Adventure pins are earned by avoiding obstacles or touching ones scattered throughout the course. The game is timed, with extra time left over at the end of the course added to the Adventure pin total.[4]

* Space Pop

In Space Pop, transparent balls (soap bubbles) shuttle between holes on the walls, floors and ceilings of a virtual room. The player attempts to pop the bubbles by touching them to earn Adventure pins. Unlike the other games, Space Pop also utilizes depth, requiring the player to move toward and away from the sensor. To move upwards, the player can flap his or her arms, and to stay at current height, hold arms out to the sides
