Choppy tracking & random hight adjustments, IMU related problems?

Recommended Posts

I'm having a lot of IMU errors when making fast swings with a wired Vive pro(using the wireless adapter it gives me even more errors and bad tracking) when making fast swings up it also sometimes adjusts player hight or tilt the horizon

 

things i've tried

  • fresh windows 10 install
  • fresh windows 7 install
  • wired Vive(seems to give less errors but same tracking issues)
  • 2 different Vive wireless kits
  • updating all vr hardware
  • different vive pro headset
  • different pc
  • different lighthouse position & angles
  • normal steamVR and beta version
  • covering windows and mirrors(should not relate to problem)
  • different linkbox
  • different games(same happens in steamVR home)
  • different room(magnetic interference?)
  • hard resetting controllers
  • wired lighthouse link connection

PC specs:

Asus Maximus VII formula

4790k I7

Nvidia GTX Titan Xp

32gb DDR3 ram

 

Laptop specs(second system i've tried, wired vive)

GT75 Titan 8RG

8850H I7

GeForce GTX 1080

32GB DDR4

 

 

Not able to swap out the controller and lighthouses as i do not have a second pair of those

The lighthouses are wallmounted with the included mounts and made sure they dont move when playing.

The error only occures when making fast swings and started about 3 weeks ago

Never dropped the controllers, lighthouses or both headsets.

 

I've looked around in the other threads mentioning this error but have not found a fix yet.

the log seem to point to the lighthouses when giving the IMU error (lighthouse: LHR-58C248DE/LHR-58C248DE) but since it only happens with quick controller movement maybe something is wrong with one of the controllers?

 

This is the log when playing with the wireless adapter, wired looks almost the same, with less IMU errors but same tracking/hight adjustment problems

Does it seem like it only happens with a single controller? Try using only one at a time and testing to see if they're both showing the same errors and choppy tracking of if it's just one of them. If it's just one, it's probably the controller and we can set up an RMA for that.

Thanks!
