    Hey all,

    I am another one who can't wait for the 22nd. Right now with my 360's Kinect, I have about 20' extention of cable to run it, as my game systems sit a distance from the tv. I think I read that the 2.0 Kinect is 9' long.I need to have a cable that is about 20-25' to run with out being tight.

    Is anyone else running into this possable delma ? Has anyone found a site pre-selling Kinect 2.0 cables yet ? I contacted a few sites like monoprice and a few others but, they have not heard anything on it yet.

    This becomes an issue when I get the Xbox one, as I wont be able to use the Kinect on it till I get a cable to exend it...

    I've never owned an Xbox. Are extension cables normally available before a model is officially available?

    "Kinect cord is LONG AF, like 6 feet or something, HDMI maybe 5? and power cord decently long as well."

    The Kinect device is a USB connection correct? Can't you just get a USB extension?

    Right, this is why I am asking to see if anyone has seen a ext cable for the xbox one kinect show up anywhere. In my case, I want to use the Kinect but, when I get my system on the 22nd, I cant use the kinect at all, so I am trying to see if I can get one BEFORE I get the Xbox one... I wanted to pre-wire it so I can just plug and play when it hits.

    It would be nice if there was an adapter to use a powered usb cable, like the kinect 1.0 did, so I can use my current cable but, I'm sure it wont be.

    For the record, I believe Major Nelson said it has a 9' cable on it. Still too short for my needs.

    Any luck with this? I am also in need of a 20' extension. I asked some of the guys at the Microsoft Store the other day, but they weren't sure and suggested a USB extension might work but I'm not convinced.

    Good thing you didn't believe him! Kinect uses a different standard that usb! I've honestly been looking specifically for this thread every day to no avail. I haven't contacted MS, but I recommend you do so, maybe they can help!

    Does the Kinect 2.0 have a different connector than the first-gen one does?

    I've heard Kinect 1 was just USB, but Kinect 2 looks like something propretiary:

    The first Kinect isn't USB. You could use a USB connection on the non-slim Xboxes that had the proprietary Kinect port, but you had to supplement it with an AC adapter to power the device. That's why if you go on GameStop and look for a used Kinect, you'll see a model with an AC adapter and one without it.

    Why do you need a 20+ foot cable for the Kinect???

    I'm in the same boat and needing probably a minimum of 20ft. My TV is mounted above the fireplace, so to reach the mantel where I want to place the Kinnect, I have to run it from my hi-fi cabinet next to the fireplace, up into the roof, then back down the conduit behind the fireplace. I refuse to have exposed cables as it would ruin the look. I'm also grappling with how well the new Kinnect will work if I happen to mount it off from the center of the room and the screen by placing it on top of the hi-fi cabinet.

    I can't watch a 7-minute video to figure out why this is related to the topic. Is there an extension cable mentioned in there somewhere?

    Sorry. At about one minute, he shows how long the cable is. He says it looks about 10 feet.

    Really ? I dont keep my consoles under my TV, I keep them off to the side, It's easier and it looks better. Still the fact of the matter is, I need to have a long cable for it, *IF* the cable is around 9' like I heard, then a 15-20' cable should fit for my needs but, still, No ext cable, No Kinect for me...

    After seeing the reviews, yea, the Xbox one will work fine with out the Kinect, so it should be fine when I get it but, I will be hunting down that cable....ugh..

    Same problem here. I keep my devices in another room, so I need 25+ foot long cables.

    Anyone found extension for Kinect 2.0 yet?

    I'll need one at some point as well. Building a hosue right now and my TV will be above the fireplace so my equipment will be in the corner of the room.

    I wonder if there is any degredation of signal the longer the cable is?

    I'm sure there is, as with anything of that nature. The question is just when it occurs.

    Any luck with this. I am in the same boat as you. I have a home theater with 120" screen but all my components are in the back where we sit. I need a 20' cable as well or so

    Nothing yet, I checked the normal channels today with nothing. A tweet from @xboxsupport said nothing announced yet. I also checked monoprice.com (a site known for good cable for a good price) and they dont have anything yet...

    If you're looking for a cable like I am, this is a thread to watch, there are people pulling apart the Kinect to see how it could be extended

    this is a thread to watch...

    How do you use the Kinect if it's in another room?

    He means that he needs the cable to go from the console to the room he'd use the Kinect in, of course.
