NI mate features


Hi there. I’m a new user, just got myself a Kinect 360 model 1414, and have been trying to connect to my win10 64bit desktop. Initially tried the Kinect SDK, and using the set-up browser to check the setup, got “USB3 uncertain bandwidth may not be supported”. Did some digging and bought a USB3 card suitable for running at the required bandwidth (Startech 2 Port USB 3.0 PCI Express SuperSpeed Card Adapter with UASP) as I assumed it was a bandwidth problem. No positive result. Continually finding in Device manager that the Xbox nui motor has an exclamation mark.
I have given up on the Microsoft, and moved on to Ni mate, but find I am still getting no further. I get “no sensor detected” in Ni mate.
Any suggestions as to what I can try? Or am I using kit that will not work to start with…
