Zepp Posted March 18, 2019 Share Posted March 18, 2019 Hiya guys, Ok, so I have a couple of concerns and would like to know if there is a fix at all for these. First one is: When the HMD battery runs out or either disconnect the battery, for some reason steam always force switches my recording device on windows as then the HMD is not detected as a device, if I am playing a game such as VRChat that means each time I have to exit the game and go back in. I have spoken to some others and they seem to get it too but have no idea how to fix this and I cant find a trace of this anywhere online. Anyone know a fix for this? Second one is regularly out of the blue my HMD screens just go black(off) and audio stops and mic stops, fools me to think that the battery has ran flat then I realise its still "on" with the green LED on the transmitter on (but Red LED on the HMD its self) and the battery has not even drained half way (for example half battery life but happens randomly). Even if I leave the headset to see if it fixes its self it does not. To fix this I have to pull out the power and plug it back in again so the HMD & wireless transmitter can reboot. Lastly is just like that previous one, but instead the screen goes grey out of the blue for no reason, like when it loses tracking (so this time I still have audio and able to use the mic but just the grey loss of tracking screen comes up), it does lose tracking, but never regains. Again, to fix this I have to pull the power out. For those last 2 I have also spoken to others in VR to ask if they get the same with wireless, while the black screen they say they don’t have, but all have said the grey screen seems to be far far more common than it used to be. All 3 of these link up as when I get grey screen or black I have to disconnect the wireless, then when I do that I also have to change my recording device (mic) on windows then restart my game. This happens around 3 to even 6 times a play session (I live in vr so play sessions are like 8 hours long). Anyone know any perm fixes for these? These issues are not present what so ever when wired, leading me to believe its the wireless soley. I only use the standard Vive but the exact same issues occur with Vive Pro users. Thanks everyone.
