setup for Three Vive Base stations 1.0

Hi, 

Hello, Steam does not detect third HTC vive base station. I have 3 HTC Vive base stations of version 1.0 , Is it possible to work with three base stations? If yes, how should I make set up?

Thanks

1.0 base stations can only operate up to 2 per set up. You can do a set up with 3 up to 16 only with 2.0 base stations.

Thank you,
Can I use two base stations of 1.0 and third base station of 2.0 togather? or do I need to use all three base stations of 2.0 at a time, if I want use more than two base stations?

No you can't. So 1.0 stations can track OG Vive and Vive Pro , while 2.0 can track only Vive Pro set up. You can't mix 1.0 with 2.0 base stations.

Thanx again,

 

It means I can not increase playarea with base station 1.0. Actually, I want to use two Vive Pro HMD at a time ((like Multiplayer))and also at one PC. When I connect two vive pro HMD, Steam detects only one. How do I set up to use two HMD at a time at one PC? Is it also depends on particular VR application?

I responded to this via the support ticket you submitted. In short, the only way to run two SteamVR instances on the same PC is via VM - it's a pain in the ass and not highly recommended. 

 

It is impossible to get more than 2 - 1.0 Stations to work within the same line of sight of each other. 2.0 stations can array upto 4 stations per SteamVR instance on compatible hardware.

If possible, just use two PCs, one with each HMD connected and two standard base station 1.0s. You'll have enough space for players if you mount the base stations high enough.

If your base station has a Fault 02/03 error or a red light or both, the ONLY solution is to contact our support on vive.com and set up an RMA. There is no user fix for this issue.
