    Netflix ignores global system kinect settings


    Someone PLEASE figure out how to turn off Netflix voice recognition through Kinect. Seriously. My System Settings->Kinect Settings->Speech Regonition is GLOBALLY SET TO OFF. There is no reason why Netflix should be able to access my Kinect and respond to
    the voices coming out of my speakers and randomly start fast forwarding/rewinding without my consent.

    Searched this problem and it turns out the ONLY WAY TO FIX IT is to UNPLUG THE KINECT.

    Are you serious? If my settings say "hey, don't use this part of the hardware", NO APP should be able to work AROUND my user settings and have permission to access features that I've turned off. It seems like a huge privacy oversight.

    :)

    Microsoft does not care about your peripheral gaming needs because the 360 is not a game system anymore, it's an entertainment system. Quality devices such as steering wheels and arcade quality joysticks
    and buttons are no longer on the official MS radar, only KINECT! KINECT! KINECT! and KINECT!!

    I couldn't have said it better myself.





    Along with Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, you need to add Netflix, Netflix, Netflix; Facebook, Facebook, Facebook; Hulu, Hulu, Hulu, etc, etc, etc. MS is the game console manufacturer who's sight is focused the least on gaming.

    All the lights were on. My accent isn't strong at all. Although it would turn on by voice but nothing else. Held my finger on the button until it powered down. Started it back up and is fine now.

    Thanks everyone

    Do you have a strong accent? I presume you already have but try speaking a bit clearer and raise your voice
