lendud Posted November 1, 2018 Share Posted November 1, 2018 So, I see this is a very common issue with many causes and here's my case. I've had an HTC Vive for almost a year now and have never encountered this issue until a few days ago. I turned my Computer on with the Vive all plugged in ready for some nice PavlovVR and to my horror I had the Error 208. I scoured the internet and tried many fixes until I plugged the HDMI straight into the back of my computer bypassing the Link Box. This worked for the day and allowed me to use SteamVR, it even let me when I removed the HDMI from the back of the computer and used it normally with the Link Box in the normal Wire Configuration it worked! This was brilliant and I stowed the vive and switched the computer off. Then today, I encountered the same Issue and my previous fix didn't work. I tried everything, the Direct Mode enabled didn't do anything, I tried reinstalling drivers, updating graphics Cards, all the USBs shows a bright white in the Steam VR developer menu so no issues there, I checked my HDMI cable worked, the USB cable must work and so does the Power so no issues their either. I even Reinstalled Windows! There is seemingly nothing else I can try! I even checked the HMD to see if the cables were in and they were, it flickers green for a split second when I try to reboot headset in SteamVR and displays the message "Status - Connected" but then displays the error 208 upon SteamVR startup. I am lost for what I must do and I can't see a fix, I've been trying for 2 days for a solid fix but I can't seem to find one. I hope to god I can get a fix for this since I enjoy the Vive so much.
