Kinect IR emitter doesn't shut down after closing demo applications. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello to all!

    Thanks to Microsoft for releasing Kinect beta SDK, I'm trying it right now, and noted that Kinect's IR emitter still working even when demo app (which used it) is closed. Is it some kind of bug?

  • Thanks for reply Eddy!

    Will it be fixed by Microsoft?

    Can it potentially damage Kinect device, if it's IR beamer will be working non stop full day?

    I'm asking because all non-official SDK's allowed to turn it off when don't needed.

  • Please, take this into account in future releases of SDK.

    Meanwhile I need to unplug USB to shut down IR emitter when I don't need it.

  • Safely-eject the KINECT USB Audio, and it'll turn off.
