  1. Thanks for the response, I'm actually leaning towards the Dragonfly Black or Red now after reading reviews since I'm pairing it with either my expensive Sennheiser HD800 or Campfire Audio Lyra II's. It does away with software gimmicks and should just work sans drivers. The reason I need this, since I forgot to mention is that I've got a Vive 'n' chill running off the USB C already and need it split out into two usb A ports. A USB A DAC and the cooler should theoretically work together if the usb audio passthrough works. I haven't had any CPU issues, but I'm also throwing a Threadripper
  2. Does the USB C port on the Vive support full passthrough like I was plugging in to a USB port anywhere on the tower? I want to get a 1 to 3 usb c OTG cable to power both my Vive 'n' chill and a USB DAC to so I can swap out the headphones. The Creative Sound Blaster 3 Play! doesn't require drivers and I think should just work, but the the Sound BlasterX G1 with software 7.1 audio does require drivers or it falls back to stereo. Is the same true with the wireless module installed?
  3. I had this issue with my desktop only when I was using the Vive Pro + wireless for some reason. It worked fine with Vive OG + wireless. In my specific case it seems to crap out with two GPUS when they aren't running SLI. Monitor connected to card 1 with displayport, got the error. Switched to card 2, same error. Turned on SLI and plugged back into card 1 - worked fine. It's a bit weird that the pro requires SLI enabled to "hide" the second card and clear the error.
  4. Agreed, I put my notes back on page 2 and it's running great on my Threadripper 1950x with the card installed in the second PCI-E x16 slot on my motherboard (running at x8). Motherboard is Gigabyte x399 Aorus Xtreme, never had any issues but I saw this popping up on reddit for others.
  5. My comments are in a reddit thread here https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/comments/9k8thl/has_anyone_tried_the_vive_wireless_card_with_an/ In short, would not recommend. It might work OK on a system where Thunderbolt routes directly through the CPU as someone else mentioned but that may only be on Mac notebooks. Waiting on an M.2 riser cable to try directly attached to the motherboard without TB in the way.
  6. Just wanted to add a counterpoint here that I had no issues testing mine for about 3 hours tonight. Specs: Threadripper 1950x 64GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB 3200Mhz Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme x399 SLI EVGA 1080Ti Founders Edition (newest 411.70 drivers) Windows 10 (latest patch) HTC Vive (original). Everything hooked up and ran great the whole time. My only two issues were: 1) I lost mouse control on the deskop when using BigScreen, not sure if that's a bigscreen issue but it was infuriating 2) Hotplugging the battery didn't work, SteamVR and the wireless utility came back up but the H
  7. Well I have good and bad news: Good news: it might not be officially supported, but it installs just fine and SteamVR loads up with wireless enabled. Great! Bad news: It's atrocious to actually use. Latency is really bad, turn your head and a half second later the image turns. SteamVR shows excellent frame rate, but the wireless display acts like it's getting nasty latency and losing some frames. It's unusuble as it is if you try to use thunderbolt enclosures.
