Vive 2.0 controller not tracked

accessory

Do you have a v1.0 lighthouse or friend that can assist with testing wand?


#22

I do not, the only thing I can maybe do is go to the Microsoft store in Minneapolis.


#23

You can next day one from amazon for $134.


#24

Grab try & return. :beers::sunglasses::+1::sparkles:


#25

I don’t see how getting a 1.0 controller would do anything since the valve base stations are 2.0 only. I have to head to bed, and I’ll keep it plugged in to fully charge( it was on factory charge).


#26

I believe he means a v1.0 LH to test controller as a v1.0 controller would not work with your V2.0 LH.


#27

I’ll keep that as an option, I get nervous with returns. I’m already nervous ( and annoyed) after spending $230 lol


#28

I can imagine it’s rudiculous how muchbmore they want though for tracking sensor upgrade $80 to $100 more. Same with so much for Valv3 saying LH v2.0 was cheaper to manufacture as there selling them at the same increase over v1.0.

I saw this just now https://twitter.com/sweviver/status/1026522768924389377

I dont know if I should try this.


#30

Ive decided to try again tomorrow after it has fully charged. If no luck, then I’ll call to my local Microsoft store to see my options. Worst case scenario, i return them and maybe get a replacement, or i return them and get something else.

Hey @mrchittychad. This sounds odd.
I see you referred to my Twitter post, but that was only about my 1.0 Vive controllers getting “loose” cables inside and I had to open them up, reconnect the cables and theysuddenly started to track. Im not sure if thats your problem though, as you are using a completely new controller, I assume? But if its an old (or second hand) controller, this COULD be the issue.

Edit: Nevermind hehe…


#32

Its brand new, just got it yesterday. Should be fully charged now, but I can’t try again until tonight.


#33

Just tried it again, still no luck.


#34

Would i need viveport and/or bluetooth?


#35

Nope those didnt work. Now i have to talk to india


#36

so I didn’t know vive isn’t Microsoft… no help from them, trying live support on vive website. I hope I can get my money back.


#37

Ok so i got a hold of vive and he told me all about the return policy, including a return and replace. Feeling a heck of a lot better now that its going “somewhere”

Just curious, what are my other options for controllers that are currently out? I’m not sure I can wait for valve or pimax lol

Atm not too much in terms of using Light houses.

Htc Tracking puck.

Otherwise using programs like Driver4VR with psmove/kinect/ leapmotion v1

Or buying a NoloVR or finding an old Razer Hydra
