Does cheap usb2 extender work? nop
But if you add some hub with power supply on the end, might work.
But as i know all extenders are 5m and you can connect only 4 in row
so you can get up to 20m maximum…
hay, i have some news about this topic.
tried today an extender from blackbox: http://www.blackbox.com/M/Detail.aspx/USB-2-0-CAT5-Extender/IC280A
over a 50m cat5 net cable.
kinect is working, but i’m suffering some “stuttering”, something very ritmical, like 1 time every second (like when you see a 30fps video played back in a 25fps timeline).
don’t know if it’s the extender or the patch (very complex and with kinect 2 over a usb3 to optical fiber extender and a optical fiber of 50m).
i’ll let you updated when i find a solution (cat6 cable instead of cat5?).
about the stuttering, looking at the perfmeter i can see the drop every second, that slows down the framerate (pink color peaks)
