@Nerdenator: Good catch, thank you.
Yep, there was a bug on line 27 (now fixed). I switched it to e.Status and it seems to work for me.
In looking at the original post though, looks like the author later updated it to use _kinect.Status. Either one should work.
(Just a side note, I cannot take any credit for this project/code. The original author, http://elbruno.com/, deserves all the kudo's and credit, etc for it. I'm just the messenger...
