  1. Ya, my OG pre-order Cosmos is still in its box waiting for improvements which never seem to ever happen. At least my Vive Pro full kit w/Index controllers does work very well.
  2. Try going to your win10 device manager setting and locate your wireless card. Then make sure to disable power savings on it as well. Most of all Vive devices troubleshooting is included in the Vive support website. It may be a good idea to have a look there or contact Vive Support and ask them. Good luck and cheers.
  3. I've never needed to use this SteamVR option with my Vive Pro. I just edit my win10 power settings advanced setting to disable usb power savings and after a pc restart go to device manager and right click on every usb properties and make sure that the power savings box is unchecked. This seems to work fine forever unless I add something like a new pcie usb card.
  4. Go to the vive website (vive.com) select the Support tab, then pick your headset and drill down for troubleshooting suggestions. You could also contact vive technical support. Good luck.
  5. Thanks for letting us know about the overcharge protection mate. Since the 2.0 controllers are actually made by Valve it's probably a Valve issue anyway. Although, my Index controllers that I now mainly use with my Vive Pro do turn off its the controller led once fully charged. No real big deal for me.
  6. I've always found the same with mine as well using a wall charger. They fully charge but I never get the white full-charge light. If I've had them on charge for 5-6 hours and know they are charged, if I disconnect the charge cable then plug it in again I get the white light. If not, I leave them on charge for another hour and unplug/replug again. Now I just use an external 10000mahr battery (actually ones I got for my vive wireless adapter) pack to charge these and when they are fully charged the external battery automatically turn off. If I manually restart the battery pack I get a white
  7. I'm pretty sure that you can RMA Index headsets/controllers ok in Australia but you will need to pay shipping charges to their service area. I believe they will ship it back directly to you but I'm not sure whether or not you are going to have to pay for this or not. I'm not sure whether or not you should get an Index headset. However, I do know that it's always a good idea to have backup. I personally have a 3x VR headset setup. I mainly use my Vive Pro with all my flight/racings sims, My Oculus Rift cv1 for all my Oculus Store games, and my Oculus Quest 1 for standalone mobile VR, w
  8. @JHong I do feel bad for you mate and hope I never need to deal with Vive Support for my Vive Pro. If it makes you feel any better I had a pretty poor response when I tried to send back my pre-ordered OG Vive Cosmos. I got talked into keeping it because Vive promised me that they were about to update the very poor tracking. Of course, this has never happened, although it did improve a little. Waiting took me outside the 10 day return for refund period. At least I got a years subscription to VivePort which I have found very useful. Shortly after I bought my Vive Pro full kit and also the
  9. Like everything, most forum posts are pretty negative and if you really believed these you would not buy anything imho. I have had the Valve Index controllers for about 6 months now and they work perfectly well. They did kinda cost me a bit too much since I needed to import them in from the US (~aud$700 total) since Steam still does not ship to Australia. Steam support was pretty good at giving me the free HLA game as well. In your case you may want to consider the Index headset and controllers, or maybe just the headset since your Vive controllers/base stations should work fine. Not sure
  10. Thankfully my Vive Pro Full Kit (also paid aud$2,000 for this over a year ago) continues to work great. I have since added Etsy Gear VR lens mod and Index controllers and I'm very happy with all this. Sorry to hear you are having soooo many problems. Hopefully it will get sorted out eventually. Maybe in the meantime you should get a Quest 2 as backup, lol!
  11. Pretty sure that the Vive wireless adapter pcie card is only gen2 so don't expect it to report pcie 3.0. In the past some (including myself) have changed bios settings from auto to gen3 because this sometimes improves stability. But it does not change the card to pcie 3.0. I believe that this would require an updated wireless card.
  12. Glad you have everything working fine. I pre-ordered the original Vive Cosmos and went through similar frustrations trying to get it's inside-out tracking working satisfactory. Support for this was, and still is, pretty useless regarding this and current software updates have done nothing to fix this. My solution was to go out a buy a Vive Pro full kit w/2.0 base stations/controllers. I later also bought Valve Index controllers and etsy gear VR lens mod. Forgetting what this all cost me, at least now I think I have a very nice PCVR setup. I also have a pretty good gaming desktop pc (i9 9
  13. I've had a Vive Wireless adapter for over a year. With my Vive Pro and current high-end PC (i9 9900k, rtx3090, 32Gb 3000 ram) it is still too much of a cpu-hog for any of my flight sims,. So for now, like my OG Cosmos, it's back in its box and I sooo wish I never bought these. I'd give them away for free but I cannot think of anyone I dislike enough to pass them onto, lol! I actually get better results with my Oculus Quest wireless w/Virtual Desktop. Funny/sad because I paid ~ the same (actually maybe a little less) for my Quest that I did for the vive wireless adapter, lol!
  14. The best thing I ever did after the very poor tracking experience of my pre-ordered OG Cosmos was to buy a Vive Pro Full Kit w/2.0 base stations/controllers. Later, I bought the Etsy Gear VR lens mod and Index controllers. Forgetting about the what this cost me, I now have what I consider to be the very best PCVR headset currently available. I guess I could now just buy the Cosmos Elite faceplate but given the much better build quality of the Vive Pro and its OLED screens, I just don't see the point in doing this. So now my OG Cosmos is back in its box. Maybe its inside out track
