So right now I'm going to show you how to calibrate your Kinect for Xbox 360. So, here we are on our Kinect Hub and we want to get over to our Kinect Tuner. Xbox: Kinect Tuner. Now, we're actually going to need our controller for this. The first thing we have to do is hit the A button. Here we are, this is where we do our tracking, our audio and for our purposes calibration. So we're going to select calibration, and here we go. With your copy of a Kinect, you're going to receive a calibration card. So, we have our card, which is great. So we're going to select that because if we don't have our card we cannot continue. So what we're going to do is we have to take this card and line it up. Here I am, see, and this is what's going to happen. The Kinect is going to make us move forward or back depending on where it is and what image is showing. So, I'm probably going to have to move forward for this guy. Here we go, back it up, here we go. And there you go, you're going to go through a series of these so don't calibrate unless you absolutely have to.
