Trying to extend the range of the Vive Pro to my pc. Wondering If I can purchase multiple vive pro link boxes and chain them together to extend the range of the device? What would be the best way to extend the range of the PRO? Also how long is the cable from the PRO to the box?

 

Thanks!!

This works with standard Vive HMD's because the linkbox acts as an active repeater and they have the same input and output format on both sides of the box so they're easily daisy chained. This will not work for Pro because the linkbox has different input and output formats (DP/USB/Power -> proprietary 3-in-1 out). 

 

The Pro tether is ~5 meters from the linkbox to the HMD. The only real way to extend it is to find a high quality Displayport cable that's capable of transmitting >20Gbps 4K signals at length - you'll be unable to find any single cable that will add more than 4 or 5m.
