Would Kinect work like this?
My tv is in a corner in my living room and i plan to move the coffee table out the way to make enough space to play aswell, will kinect still function properly even though it will be from a corner angle rather than facing straight on like the ad's for it?

Let me know,

All answers greatly appreciated Big Grin

Mine is all angled, and it works absolutely fine.

I'm not sure if I understand you right, but Kinect not being parallel to any of your walls is not a problem at ALL.

If you mean to say that Kinect will not be facing you from the front straight on (from the front of your face/body, while you're watching the TV) then I'd say you should think of a different setup.

Thanks guys, sorry tried to explain it best i could. It was about the way the tv faced as being at an angle and i can see if works this way now. I would have kinect facing straight at me Smile

Gotcha, but the tv would be angled...I think I read somewhere some other guy did that because of room limitations and it still worked ok.

if you mean angle it under the tv as long as your straight on the tv yes it will work.

if you mean your camera is angled not facing you head on your gonna run into trouble.
