Base station 1.0 and 2.0 on at the same time?

Can I have basestation 1.0 and 2.0 on in the same room.  I want to be able to use the Vive and the Vive Pro in the same room, without turning basestation on and off.  Will this work and if it works will it effect the tracking.

No, you can not have 1.0 and 2.0 basestations operating in the same area without interference. The Vive Pro will detect signals from both basestations types whereas the original Vive will be unaffected by the 2.0 stations. 

 

Depending on your tracked volume, it's really easiest to just run both off of a pair of 1.0 basestations.

That's what I though.  I have 4 base station 2.0 mounted in the corners of as 16' x 20'.  Tomorrow I will get enabling the 2nd 2 base stations.  Tracking has been perfect with 2 2.0 base stations.  I want to have 4 2.0 basestations, before I start testing with 2-4 headsets.  I have Omen X compact Desktop (Backpack computes) that have custom short cables for the Vive, so I wil have to control the power to the base stations, when the portable backpack headsets are used.  BTW, the Omen X does not require a link for the Vive and also has a power connector for the Vive headset.  Very nice solution for portable room scale VR experience, although I have the 1.0 basestations place closer together.
