2 weeks now. I still have some hope because I already had the issue the first time I plugged it in and it worked fine for like 10 days. I still have warranty so if nothing works I guess I need to send it away for a while.

I had the same problem the first time I used my Vive but I fixed it by installing the newest Nvidia drivers and reinstalling SteamVR (At least I think that's how I got it to work) and it worked fine for like 2-3 weeks. Sadly, since yesterday it suddenly stopped working again and I don't know why because nothing changed after my knowledge (No video drivers update etc) The Vive has a permanent red light as soon as it is powered (even when the PC is off). I don't think it's an issue with the link box because USB still works it's just the HDMI which won't work anymore (Which it did before) The Vive is connected via HDMI cable and my monitor via HDMI to Displayport cable. My graphics card only has 1 HDMI slot.Also, the display won't show in device manager. OS: Windows 10 Home 64-Bit-Version CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 CPU GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 RAM: 16 GB I tried all the solutions I could find the only things I didn't try yet are 1: Reinstalling windows/Reset my PC 2: Trying another PC (I only have one and no other PC's to test it on) Things I've tried 1: All possible cable combinations (Removing cables, replacing the HDMI cable, bypass the link box and put the cables directly into my graphics card, etc). 2: Reinstalling SteamVR and installing the newest Nvidia Drivers (Even the old one which got it to work last time) 3: Restarting the Vive multiple times 4: Trying the SteamVR Beta 5: Trying different USB Ports (Even though the HDMI is the problem, I've read it should help) 6: Looking for loose cables, everything fits I'm really frustrated right now so please help. Thanks
