Home Theater: Creating an alternative Kinect extension cable?
For people who have a flat panel TV on a wall and an equipment rack on the other side of the room, the new Microsoft Xbox Kinekt will be creating many headaches, including what to when you cannot retrofit a Kinect cable in the wall between where the TV sits and where the XBox console is.
The Kinect appears to use a standard USB 2.0 plug.
Does anyone know if the Kinect can use a USB 2.0 cable as an extension or is their wiring proprietary?
In a case where there is spare spare Cat5/6 wires between the rack and the TV, can a USB 2.0 to RJ-45 extender/adapter be used to make up an in-wall extension cable?
Is this a good question?
