I am using a Kinect on a turtlebot. I have tried all of the tutorials and can not view the kinect image (through imageview or rviz) on the workstation. I am using a laptop on the turtlebot with usb 2.0 ports (no usb 3.0). Also, is there a way to change the range you receive as a viewing angle? Before when I used ros electric, the view angle was perfect (about 180 degrees) now it is more like 60 degrees which is not useful to me. Any help is appreciated. I use the roslaunch turtlebot_bringup 3dsensor.launch file and this as my turtlebot launch file:

<launch>
  <arg name="base"       value="$(optenv TURTLEBOT_BASE kobuki)"/>  <!-- create, rhoomba -->
  <arg name="battery"    value="$(optenv TURTLEBOT_BATTERY /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0)"/>  <!-- /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0 -->
  <arg name="stacks"     value="$(optenv TURTLEBOT_STACKS hexagons)"/>  <!-- circles, hexagons -->
  <arg name="3d_sensor"  value="$(optenv TURTLEBOT_3D_SENSOR kinect)"/>  <!-- kinect, asus_xtion_pro -->
  <arg name="simulation" value="$(optenv TURTLEBOT_SIMULATION false)"/>

  <param name="/use_sim_time" value="$(arg simulation)"/>
      <param name="/acceleration_limiter" value="true" />
  <include file="$(find turtlebot_bringup)/launch/includes/_zeroconf.launch"/>
  <include file="$(find turtlebot_bringup)/launch/includes/_robot.launch">
    <arg name="base" value="$(arg base)" />
    <arg name="stacks" value="$(arg stacks)" />
    <arg name="3d_sensor" value="$(arg 3d_sensor)" />
  </include>
  <include file="$(find turtlebot_bringup)/launch/includes/_mobile_base.launch">

  <include file="$(find turtlebot_bringup)/launch/includes/_netbook.launch">

  </include>
  <include file="$(find turtlebot_bringup)/launch/includes/_app_manager.launch"/>
</launch>
