I am interested in controlling an Xbox Kinect motor from ROS using kinect_aux.

However, when running rosrun kinect_aux kinect_aux_node i get the following message:

[ERROR] [1386112406.142298259]: No valid aux device found

After looking at lsusb output I get the following:

It would appear that the XBOX NUI Motor driver is not running.
I am using a XBOX Kinect model 1473, and, after some reading, I think the openni driver isn't fully functional with the 1473 model of the Kinect.
Is there some kind of work around to get kinect_aux working?

I was never able to get aux working with the Kinect Model (1473). I ended up picking up a used Xbox Kinect ( model 1414 ) for about $20 and using it instead.
