Does 'Kinect for Media Center' work with the 'Kinect for Xbox 360' sensor? Do I have to use the 'Kinect for Windows' sensor?
Per the Microsoft 'Kinect for Windows' End User License Agreement [EULA], the software
is licensed for use only with the 'Kinect for Windows' sensor. The software
may not be used with a 'Kinect for Xbox 360' sensor.
The software will not run on the 'Kinect for Xbox 360' sensor. This is not supported
by the EULA and I will not be able to provide support for this scenario.
For more information, see the full Kinect for Windows EULA
Does 'Kinect for Media Center' work with Extenders like the Xbox 360 or Linksys DMA2100/2200?
No. Due of the way Extenders for Windows Media Center are implemented,
the 'Kinect for Media Center' application cannot access the USB ports on the Extender
devices. Because of this, 'Kinect for Media Center' is not compatible
with Extenders, only WIndows Media Center computers.
What is the difference between the 'Kinect for Windows' and 'Kinect for Xbox 360' sensor?
'Kinect for Xbox 360' was built for and tested with the Xbox 360 only, not with
any other platform, which is why it is not licensed for general commercial use,
supported, or under warranty when used commercially on any other platform.
