Does anyone else's Kinect keep degrading over time?

#1Charity_DiaryPosted 8/2/2014 7:15:37 AM
The room my Xbox is in stays exactly the same, but my Kinect's accuracy keeps getting worse. I can recalibrate it and it's fine, but it eventually goes back to thinking I'm saying "Xbox Snap Twitch" when I'm really saying "Xbox go to Party".

I mean, wtf? Does this happen to anyone else?

No, you need to learn how to talk clearly and it should work everytime. Only issue is you probably.

Didn't you mom teach you not to talk with your mouth full? Swallow that bite of hot pocket before you speak!

Had you started a party beforehand?

the correct phrase if a party hasn't been created is 'Xbox, start a party'

I had this problem. I would say 'xbox, go to party' and it would either not respond or do something stupid like snap IE. Now i start a party and use 'Xbox, snap party' to manage invites etc.

It does it with other phrases as well. "Xbox, go to Friends" is heard as "Xbox, go to Internet Explorer", etc...

Made me lol. My works the same as when I first set it up back in November. Sometimes it doesn't hear me say "xbox on", but everything else works great.
