With the upcoming Playstation Move I am excited about shelling out cash and enjoying the fun, athletic gaming. However, the playstation eye will not work with passive extension cables or powered usb hubs.
I have a HD projector and need the camera the other side of the room and not 1.8metres of standard cable away from the PS3. When I plug it into a passive extension cable the power lilght flickers on and off within a second, the cable works fine and powers my 2.5" caddy drive over the 6metre run. The camera works fine when plugged in without extensions so therefore all parts of the equation work ok.
Has anyone managed to extend the cable and what do you think the chance of a wireless PS3 Eye being released are?

I have the same issue and to get around this, I have decided to move my PS3 to the wall I project on and use the 1.8m ps eye cable as normal without an extension.
This puts the PS3 on one side of the room of course and the projector on the opposite side. To get around this problem, I am buying an RGB extension cable (you can find them on ebay etc) to extend the cable from my PS3 video output to the projector.
I also have to mov my sound system too but at least this solution should work!
