Using Kinect through USB HUB. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have been using a kinect 2 on a brand new Mac Mini running windows 8.1 with great success for a while now. But now Im in a need of a system with two kinects2 devices connected. Using only one at a time though.

    It seems that the 2.0 API does not support enumeration of kinect devices? At least I couldn't find the needed methods in the SDK. To avoid connecting and disconnection USB cables I have put a USB 3.0 HUB with individual power switches in between. It started out running perfekt but after a system reboot I only get 5-8 FPS when using the kinect through the HUB.

    I have found that if the Kinect is connected directly to the mini first and then the USB hub i connected using the same USB port in the mini as the kinect was, the FPS is back to 30 FPS?

    Any clues of what is going on?
