Kinect Setup DO's
  • everyone should do the manual tilt adjust, try to tilt it as far down as possible while still being able to see your head. (all of your head) I found if I just went with the default veiwing angle from the initial setup, that kinect seemed to want more play space. (I actually gained almost a foot of 'Best Play Space', which is where kinect states two player play is possible.
  • Calibrate the Kinect Sensor multiple times under different lighting conditions for the best experience.
  • Make sure your kinect is level if its not balanced trust me your gonna have a long day
  • You want the Kinect at eye level. This gives you your maximum play area view that kinect sensor can detect. At first I had mine about 2' off the ground, in my entertainment center.

    I am new to this forum, so maybe this has already been answered. Is there a way after the initial set up to go in and re-setup the Kinect so I can do the manual kinect camera angle? It seems to be aiming very high for me right now. I have had the kinect for about a month and a half. Currently it seems to want me about 9 feet from the sensor. Thanks for the help!
