Hi everybody,

Some of you may have noticed, but there are different version of Kinect Xbox360. As I believe some of you will make some comment to that, I want to precise the different models of Kinect :

  • Kinect for Windows
  • Kinect Xbox360, old model number 1414
  • Kinect Xbox360, new model number 1473

You can see the version on the back of the kinect, as shown in this thread. The last two kinect have some minor changes, as you can see on this "lsusb -v" :

(you can go to the bottom, where a string comparison shows the differences)

Model 1414 :

The old kiniect shows up as an audio device in /proc/asound/cards but the new one doesn't? Sounds like a kernel/driver problem; outside of ROS.

You are right, it is a driver issue. However, itsn't solved neither for Avin2 drivers (which have video, but no audio neither serial video number), neither libfreekinect (nothing for this one). Good luck with the new kinects guys....

no, because ROS is not working with openNI2 for now... on the first link you gave, they say that it doesn't work with kinect. I will have it tested anyway, just in case :-) Thanks for the links.

Great you pointed that out. I actually believe I tested it with the Kinect, but that was weeks ago. Please let us know, how your tests went.

Unfortunately, they are right. OpenNI2 doesn't work with the Kinect - apparently [due to licensing issues](http://cupofpixel.blogspot.kr/2013/04/how-to-use-openni-2-nite-2-kinect-on.html) The [freenect_stack](https://github.com/ros-drivers/freenect_stack) seems the way to go for the Kinect.

After some testing,OpenNI2 can work with kinects.Steps : 1) install dependencie freenect 2) install openni2.2 3) install nite 2.2 4) download https://github.com/piedar/OpenNI2-FreenectDriver 5) build freenect driver (./waf configure build) 6) copy .so file in all Drivers folders (in openni and nite)
