Received Vive BS and Controllers


#1

Hi there I just received a Vive Pack with the controllers and BS. How is the setup? Do I need to setup the Vive first or can I switch on the BS and Controllers and do the setup from pitool?

You don’t need to plug the vive in just get the base stations synced up, you can do the room setup from the pitool, if you want a chaperone boundary you can do it again from within steam VR. You will probably have to sync the controllers to the HMD as well it’s a combination button press I forget at this moment.


anyway it may just all work :wink:

Do these Basestations make sounds ? Like spinning something? I think even one BS is louder than the other?

Yes there’s a spinning motor inside, the noise generally varies a little from bs to bs long as it’s not super loud probably ok.
