  1. So I though't I'd try to reproduce the issue today, and time exactly how long it takes and see if restarting the computer or steam vr has any effect, as well as unplugging the headset completely. Just to see what kinds if things might affect it. But after 2 hours there hasn't been any issue, and it's not much cooler in the room (and to be honest I wouldn't expect the ambient temperature to have much effect anyway). I've found a couple of other instances of people experiencing similar issues, but they've had their Vives for a while. If there was an issue with overheating I'd expect it to
  2. My headset doesn't feel any hotter than usual, but then it also seems to be insulated quite well. Like I said in my first post the outisde of the headset was warm (like normal, I guess) but the HDMI connector (after I took it out of the headset) was really hot. Consumer Vive, all standard, room temperature is about 27 degrees celsius. The time it takes seems to vary, but I haven't been playing close attention.
  3. Some additional info, it seems like the issue is not with the sensors at the side, but the ones in the centre. When the headset starts to lose tracking and flashes, if you hold your hand(s) up in front of the headset so that only the sensors around the edges have sight of the base station then it starts working again. I'll have to look into it further to find out which specific sensors are causing the fault. Still no response from the email I sent (and no automated response either, which is usually expcected so you know that the email has gone through especially when sending via a web for
  4. I posted a topic on this yesterday (no solution, I just have the same problem) in the thread 'Overheating'. At least it's not just me. How long have you had your Vive?
  5. I emailed support yesterday, but thought I'd start a topic in case anybody else has seen something similar. Basically, after some amount of time (today I got about an hour) the headset starts to lose tracking. Initially only when you look down, then when your not looking towards one of the base stations, then pretty much all the time unless you close to and looking directly at one of the base stations (presumably not long after that it'll give up altogether). From the first flickers to being completely unusable is about 5 minutes. Once the headset has been left off for a little while the
