Firstly the vive setup does not pick up the headset when the cable is plugged in but the headset still works and i can get into the house and play games as usual. However the headset constantly stutters when looking around. Is there a fix for this? It stutters even when no game is launched and you looking around the cliff house.
If we use the headset on a desktop pc with the normal display port to display port we have no issues/
I'm almost certain this due to your GPU. The Vive Pro is very demanding and it really doesn't get smooth/stable on most PCs until you're using a 1070. You can try the new motion smoothing option in combination with using the Global resolution (aka supersampling) override setting on the "Video" tab of SteamVR to reduce the demand on the CPU.
On the bottom lefthand of the SteamVR settings page, you'll see a little graph called the frame timing graph. If you're above 11.1ms, you'll see stuttering.
