  1. I posted this elsewhere but I'll re-post here FYI. Hi guys I just saw a old post on Reddit and the guy was having the same over heating and grey screen issues after 20 minutes or so reported here so he bought one of these Rankie USB 3.0 Cable, Type A to Type A, 1-Pack 6 Feet and said that the problem went away. I'm going to go out and get one of these or similar and give it a try and see if it works. He was using a old Vive HMD though and it may just be that the Cosmos hasn't been properly tested (surprise) with this unit and is basically incompatible on a component level. Fink.

  3. Ha ha I thought the same thing using a old helmet. Just add Elon Musk's Neuralink sensors and you've got a Nija 900 wireless brain bucket! Great for use in isolation tanks because that's the only way to keep them cool enough to work 🙂
  4. Hi All. @HoZy @joellipenta @stvnxu @C.T. Same experience here: Starts at 09:09: M_Temperature=32, R_Temperature=31 (ControlCenter)Link Condition Change : peerSignalQuality = 3, performanceQuality = 3 Terminates at 09:20: M_Temperature=90, R_Temperature=71 (ControlCenter)Link Condition Change : peerSignalQuality = 255, performanceQuality = 3 (ControlCenter)CallbackDeviceStatus : SDK_WIGIGFSM_STATE_STOPPED(3), reason = SDK_CURRENT_STATE_REASON_LINK_LOSS(1) (ControlCenter)CallbackDeviceStatus : SDK_WIGIGFSM_STATE_SCANNING(4), reason = SDK_CURRENT_STATE_REASON_REQUESTED_BY_APPLICATION(9) That took 20 minutes though the temp is rising fast here in Sydney today, is was at 24 C in the room at the time I tested it. I would like someone from HTC\Vive to comment on this topic to know if this is some sort anomaly, a known issue, a fault or something else. Clarity is always appreciated As someone said they did the fan mod and it still is having issues so what is the require operating temperature for this device. After all when purchasing the wireless device there is no mention of any temperature limitations or that you have to also go out and buy a small fan to plonk on top of it and hack into the battery to get it working for more that 15 minutes 🙂 I think a comment from one of the engineers or employees and some guidance on the issue is in order so can we please have a comment? Thanks Fink
  5. I'm in Australia but should it matter where on the Earth you live for your devices to not overheat? I mean, my PC with super hot graphics card works, my TV, Blu-ray, xbox stereo, fridge (just kidding about that last one 😎) all have no issues even on really hot days it's just this one device that people are having the issue with so yeah in my view it could probably have done with a fan or another heat sink. I just saw a review where they measured 52 C sitting on top of the head which anyway you look at it is not good. Unfortunately I didn't see it until after I bought it just the ones that said how good it was when it works lol. I guess I can just build myself a specially refrigerated room with a few nice pics on the walls and really bright lights, everything should work great 🤔 just sayin'. Fink.
  6. Same problem over heats every 10 to 20 minutes depending what I'm running. Having something that hot strapped to your head can't be so good for your health. Hopefully Vive have done safety testing on this device for extended periods. In any case it isn't of much use if you can only use it for 20 minutes max before it drops out no matter how good the working connection is. Fink. @Synthesis @jagibson @C.T.
  7. Good question, the description doesn't tell you anything about it's use?
  8. You can user YouTube VR (Steam Store), Big-picture app (Steam Store), the Steam Desktop viewer (double press the Vive button on the left controller to select) with your browser of choice and a number of other utility apps on Steam that provide access to your desktop apps.
  9. Hi @A-Jey I'm working at the moment (supposed to be) but i did manage to just jump into "Prose" which still looks pretty dark but it is a outside night scene under the stars so it maybe intentional to look like that, I won't know until I can try a indoor scene maybe later tonight, that is why i asked the question about the scope of the "fix". I'm just happy Lone Echo works as I paid full price for it 🙂 Fink
  10. Hi @C.T. I just tried it and it works beautifully 🙂 well done and thanks for the fix. Is this fix just for revive games or is it across the board? Cheers! Fink.
  11. I've just tried the update and for me it's a great improvement. Just a little bit of drift at the side of my head but otherwise very well done. To the team who did this update a big thank you for persevering, it was a nice way to finish off the year and wishing a happy new year to you all. Cheers! Fink.
  12. Any updates on the "progress" for fixing the Vive Cosmos controller issues? Thanks Fink @stvnxu
  13. I've had tracking not turn on when the lights are too dim. Also I would do the obvious and update to the latest firmware version via the console. Maybe get on chat support to run you through the basic troubleshooting as you might have missed something? Let us know how you go Fink
  14. Hi again. I have another question. I am curious as to how the engineers are approaching this issue with the controller instability? Are they approaching the problem by integrating the acceleration and Gyro sensor data from the controllers or are they just relying on the visual sensors? Due to the design a integrated approach would seem to be the best approach. Even after the last update they still fly around when close to the HMD visual sensors so clearly that path is not working and has obvious limitations. Also not everyone is in a position to setup external sensors in their environment nor are they probably willing to go to the extra expense until these issues are resolved as we need to be confident in the product going forward. I look forward to your response. Thanks Fink.
  15. Hi I had the same issue where did you end up putting the files to get it working? @zzy
