Hi everyone,

After release of groovy I did a clean install of Kubuntu 12.10 and groovy. I also have a windows 7 installed with Microsoft Kinect SDK, which can work with my Kinect for Xbox very well, so there is no hardware issue. When I run rviz or image viewers, upon moving my kinect sometime the images freeze. This is the output of rostopic hz /camera/depth_registered/points

Does anybody know why this happens? and why frequency is around 5hz? I have a powerful CPU and GPU, and in windows point cloud is generated at around 30fps.

What resolution are you using? What is the exact command line you executed to launch?
