Re: Wireless Adapter - SteamVR 108 Headset not detected

I'm on driver version 411.70 - I'll have to update and try again tomorrow.  I've tried a couple SteamVR reinstalls and quite a few USB driver reinstalls.

 

I'm more and more suspecting it's something with the devices / drivers Vive Wireless creates when it starts up.  On my clean install, the camera and speakers show up in Device Manager.  On my existing install, there is a sound device and usb input device that claim they have no drivers installed, aren't named correctly (Displaylink audio device instead of HTC Vive), but otherwise don't show any errors, and won't let me manually install drivers from C:/Program Files/Displaylink XR/drivers.

 

I'd still like to find the cause, I'm a tad concerned with a fresh install that I'll end up recreating whatever problem scenario exists and being back at square 1.

I just finished doing a fresh install of windows and reinstalling all my drivers, and steam. That worked, but like you said, I am afraid it will stop working again after I reinstall all my applications I use.

Reinstalling SteamVR don't have change anything.

 

But finally, after seeing people having a working setup after reinstalling from scratch windows and vr apps. I was wondering if setting some default options in steamVR may help.

 

I just uncheck this one : "Put Base Station in Standby mode when VR is not in use"

 

And now it's working. steamVR timeout option is probably not aware about wireless device. But now i can play. Or is it just a bug ?

 

Hope it helps

After more testing, i was wrong. After restarting my computer this issue come back.

 

This time i test a new approach. I started steamVR first. And vive wireless next.

 

It seems to work. After an hour, the headset lost tracking. I just restart vivewireless and i come back where i was.

 

I will do more testing ^^

It seems to be a camera related issue :

I will try with camera disabled in some scenarios (but it's not a definitive solution !)

I confirm my issue was resolved by setting camera refresh rate to 60hz.

If you haven't disabled the camera is SteamVR, do that now.

Fixed Mine

I had the same issue and tried everything except for moving the card inside my pc. I wanted to exhaust all other issues. I ended up chaning the usb cable that goes from the wireless headset adapter to the power supply with another I had around the house. It solved the issue and I was able to verify that when I switch back to the cable that came with the device that it comes back with the same errors. 

 

I'm sure this won't solve it for everyone but one more thing to try. Good luck.
