How Often Does Your Kinect Work?

#1SampsonMPosted 2/12/2014 5:54:04 AM
I've seen people say 90-95% of the time.

I would say mine works maybe 50% of the time, and that's being optimistic. It constantly hears the wrong things, or doesn't hear me at all. I've re-calibrated the Kinect multiple times and to no avail.

Is this just how it is, or might I possibly have a defective unit?

Started at around 90% and is now at about 95-97% and my mother tongue is German but I prefer English commands hence my English is rather strongly accented which gave me trouble w/ play and close at the beginning but I've figured it out and improved my English.

In Dead Rising 3 I'd say around 50% but on the dash I'd say 95%-97%, in bing search it could tell the difference between royal and royale, that impressed me.

95%

are you using the right commands? Or do you think you can say whatever you want and it will translate?

Mine works most of the time. Every now and then I'll have to say "Xbox on" a few times for it to finally turn on.

My only real complaint with it so far is the motion controls. I'll go to take a sip of a drink or take a bite out of a sandwich and it turns on motion controls thinking I want to do something. I wish there was a way to disable that option.

Mine probably works like 70% of the time. It's mainly when I want to record something or if I want to pause whilst watching a program. This might be due to the TV being just a little too loud, but it really should be able to pick up on what you say considering is best placed around the TV area...

I've used it only for voice, I'd say about 85% of the time.

Things like:

"Xbox, turn off"

"are you sure you want to turn off?"

"Yes"

*nothing*

"Yes!"

*nothing*

*voice commands deactivate*

Also my motion controls never work at all. I can't even get them to activate.
