Sensor not facing straight forward

Sensor not facing straight forward
I recently created an Xbox / Workout room. In reallocating the Xbox sensor I realized that the sensor is facing 30 degrees or so to the right. Which was perfect for my previous setup. Now I need it to face perfectly straight to use the room appropiately.

Currently I am balancing the sensor on top of the TV so I can't manually change the angle.

Any advice on why the sensor is not facing straight and better yet how do I get the sensor to adjust itself?

Thanks

well first of all i would say dont ever balance your kinect on anything. Since its only balancing the weight of the wire going to the xbox twisting it. the sensor can only pivote up and down you are free to move it side to side as you need it to be.

I move my tv and sensor constantly but it takes seconds to put in place. i play every game without issues. I also put the kinect on a small box so the edge of the desk its on doesn't block the view of my legs.
