SmugFrog Posted March 21, 2018 Share Posted March 21, 2018 I received my headset yesterday and spent all evening trying to get it to work. The first problem I encountered was during setup it never detected the HDMI connection. Some people recommended proceeding without that, so I did - but then Steam VR never detected it either. I followed another user's advice to bypass the link box and that did make the headset be detected, but it frequently disconnects every 5-10 seconds. I tried launching the Steam VR tutorial, and when it says to put the headset on, no video/light is displayed inside the headset. I could see on my monitor the headset tracking was working and I could look around by moving the headset. The light on the side never changes from red and the sound cuts out when the headset loses connection. This morning I tried again with another suggestion of bypassing the linkbox for the USB, this is my result: The audio output for the Vive disappears at the same time the headset loses connection. Is my headset / linkbox busted? Please help! I tried the Vive a year ago at a friend's house and I'm really sold on VR, but an experience like this just turns people off from it. I've tried every recommended troubleshooting action I could find; verifying and reverifying cables, disconnecting/reconnecting/reinstalling etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
