Some HTC vive in the same room.

Hi, 

 

I have a problem, I use 2 vive in the same room with 4 base stations, but there is a conflict between them. However I tried to install it, separetly, in the same time ... If I try to launch one, the other is out, base station loose the signal. How can I figure out ? How people do this on VR show ? 10 or 100 HMD on the same area. 

 

Thank you

Please remove two of the base stations. You don't need and in fact cannot use four base stations in the same area.

You just need two for any number of headsets.

Thanks,

Ok If I'm in area with other company who use HTC vive, I ask them to remove their base station?

 

If I use two, it doesn't work good. I tried this afternoon and it was a disaster. Every time I launch steamVR on the 1st computer+hmd, it loose the synchronisation with the 2nd.

How VR ZOne Arcade manage this problem? I guess they didn't use 2 base station for more than 2 HMD.

Currently, you have to physically isolate each base station pair, either by a physical structure (wall, curtain...ect) or by distance (at least 10-15 meters between pairs). If your in a small enough area you may be able to use a single pair of lighthouses for multiple HMDs.
