- Start VIVE Wireless - wait for Ready
- Start SteamVR

- Turn on controllers - wait for all greens on SteamVR dashboard
- HMD is displaying all black even though everything says it's working - Display Mirror = all white
- Reboot Headset

- HMD displays the This is Real scene for about 10 seconds then goes all grey. Display Mirror = Frozen This is Real scene


This type of thing happens constantly.  It's practically unusable without doing repeated reboots and restarts of the apps until I "get lucky" and it decides to work for a while.

I'm pretty sure it's not a connection problem.  The transmitter is at about 5' height, roughly 7' from the standing position in the play area, pointed straight at my head.  No obstructions anywhere near. Also, the VIVE Wireless shows Ready with 4 bars.

Something is locking up and not throwing any visible errors.  WiGig card? Headset itself (although it never had any problems cabled)?  I'm not sure where to even begin trying to narrow this down but I'm nearly to the point of boxing up the Wireless and sending it back.
