About extender cable


Hello, i'm having a problem. kinnect is working fine if we use normal original cable for the PC, but when ever we put extender cable between the kinect and PC the kinnect won't work. Also tried to use long cable from the Oculus link but didn't work as well. So my question is, what might be the problem, or if it is possible that you could recommend us a cable at least 5m long for that.

    Hello @Maksims Terescuks | Total Reality ,

    To select a good Type-C to Type-C cable:

    • The USB certified cable must support both power and data.
    • A passive cable should be less than 1.5m in length. If longer, use an active cable.
    • The cable needs to support at least 1.5A. Otherwise you need to connect an external power supply.

    Please visit this Github issue discussion to check various experiences with using extended USB cables.

    This document section on Power device gives basic information on selecting USB cable.


    Please let us know if you need further help in this matter.
