Kinect + MBP 15' 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Bonjour,

    j'ai acheté la nouvelle Kinect + l'adaptateurs pour la connecter à mon MBP Retina 15' mi-2014 OS X Yosemite,

    j'ai installé Windows 8.1 et lancé le Windows V2 SDK.... malheureusement, après avoir lancé Kinect Configuration, il m'indique un soucis avec mes Ports USB :

    Unknow USB 3.0 port detected. Your USB configuration may support Kinect for windows

    Pourtant cela marche pour la plupart des personnes qui en parle... que dois je faire ?

    est on obligé d'installer Windows 8.1 ou peut on l'utiliser avec OS X ?

    j'utilise des logiciels comme processing afin de mettre en œuvre des installations numérique interactive par le biais de vidéo-projecteur.

    Google translate...;-)

    Hello,
    I bought the new Kinect + adapter to connect it to my MBP Retina 15 'mid-2014 OS X Yosemite,
    I installed Windows 8.1 and launched the Windows SDK V2 .... unfortunately, after launching Kinect setup, it tells me problems with my USB Ports:
    Unknow USB 3.0 port detected. May your USB media Kinect for Windows configuration
    Yet it works for most people who talk about ... what should I do?
    it is required to install Windows 8.1 or can it be used with OS X?
    I use software like processing to implement interactive digital installations via video projector.

    thanks for responding !!!

  • If its a warning(orange) ignore the warning if you are able to get 30fps on the color and depth. I am assuming Apple hasn't changed their USB3 host controller chipset, so you shouldn't have an issue there, but bandwidth could be an issue. Have a look at the troubleshooting thread for steps you can try to ensure the energy/power saving options are not set to limit the bandwidth:

  • thanks for your response,

    In the Kinect Configuration viewer, i have an "orange !" for the USB and for the Kinect deph and color Stream...

    and a "Red X" for the Kinect Connected...

    I'm going to check with an USB 3.0 Hub or an Thunderbolt to USB 3.0

    keep in touch  ;-)
