Speaking of the base stations... I want 1 to just be at my racing seat for head tracking, but I want another part of our room to be dedicated for room-level VR. Could I get 1 extra base stations and use 2 for the room and 1 for the seat?

Like the title says, I've purchased a used Vive, and I am very excited to get it set up. Here's what I've done so far Have not set up any cameras yet Have not touched the controllers yet hooked up everything to the computer yes I set the cables up correctly, it's pretty obvious how they all connect Downloaded SteamVR Plugged the vive into power, HDMI to the vid card, and USB to the computer Symtoms Headset has power (red light on the side by the button) Computer dings that it registers a USB device Opened SteamVR Gives me 103/203 errors that the display either cannot connect or is un-recognized Light stays red on the side Things I've tried: Task manager close SteamVR and Steam, restarted everything including computer, no effect. Went into Device Manager/USB connections, and in the properties of (generic USB) I said "don't automatically put to sleep" There were like 8 "generic USB" items, but I'm assuming the 1 property applied to all of them I took off the top plate on the headset and re-seated all the cables The usb cable is plugged into the middle socket, not the far right socket (nothing is in there at the moment) Thought I needed to check the firmware for the Vive, but in Steam VR, the upgrade firmware section in the menu is disabled. Thoughts: Do the cameras/controllers need to be connected in order to get the display to register as OK? Any way to factory reset or update the firmware other than through SteamVR? Since it's display related, it might be how I have my HDMI cables set up? HDMI out on my vid card goes to a splitter Splitter mirrors the signal with 2 outputs one output goes to my 1080p monitor other goes to an HDMI extender, that connects directly to the Vive module Re: HDMI splitter, I feel as though I would need to split because the computer needs to be interacted with to get the vive up and running The vid card only has 1 HDMI out, so should I be connecting the monitor or the vive with the displayPort to make this work? Could be as deep as the vive motherboard itself? I have a lot plugged into that machine, and it's all running on 1 power strip racing wheel, computer, peripherals, VR, speakers, etc Could it be too much of a load on the computer or the power source and not have enough power coming to it to drive the displays? Setup: LGA1155 Motherboard i7-3770K EVGA GTX1070 16g ram
