  1. I finally have a proper VR setup, and my health condition has improved so I can actually use it. There are two very strange issues though, both probably a result of the shape of my head which seems to be too abnormal for my Vive to handle. The first issue is that I have a "fake" double-vision. It's kinda hard to explain. Imagine having double-vision while also having perfect vision at the same time. It's like a double-vision view layered on top of a perfect view. I've tried both the knob on the right side and rotating the rings on the strap connector. Those don't help. The c
  2. I'm the guy who finally got his Vive working after over a week and no help from Vive Support, and I've been enjoying VR... up until about 10 minutes ago. One of the controllers needed an update (where's the "disable updates" button?) so I decided to update it. It gets to Step 3/4 (Preparing to update) and the update fails, the light turning orange. Here's what I've tried so far: - Using a different USB cable - Doing that thing where you unplug it, hold down the buttons for 10 seconds, and plug it back in - Reinstalling SteamVR - Reinstalling Steam The controller refus
  3. Yet another update - the headset stopped working AGAIN. No display in the screens, same HDCP error as before, it's useless again. What the actual crap is going on here?
  4. Alright, you can now consider this issue as solved. Like most technical issues, the simplest solution is almost always the correct one. In my case, the solution was the HDMI cable - the HDMI part of the 3-in-1 cable got broken somehow. I'm using a random one from my house and it works fine. I've ordered a better cable, and I'll be in business.
  5. Okay, I have an interesting update. I got the headset to work for a few minutes. Every time I launched SteamVR, I would see some sort of logo, and launching VRChat worked. However, about a minute later, it stopped working, displayed the same error as before, and the light turned red again. Now I can't get it to work again. So the headset works, and I got it to work for a few minutes, but a Vive should work until I decide to stop using it. The mystery deepens. Also, it's been a week since I sent Vive support all the info needed to solve this, but I haven't heard back from them yet. I ho
  6. Okay, I found some reports of that NvAPI error happening when at least one of the GTX 1080's DisplayPorts is also being used by something. This is true for me - my GTX 1080 only has one HDMI port, and since the Vive doesn't work with adapters, I had to get a Male HDMI to Male DisplayPort cable for my monitor. There's no other way. Do I have to buy a new computer?
  7. I'm on the most recent NVIDIA drivers, and I've had it plugged into the GPU. I know the difference. Also, I did try bypassing the link box like you said, but then SteamVR gives a different error "Headset not plugged in" or something like that, then the headset isn't detected at all. Viveport still detects it without the link box, but SteamVR doesn't. I don't know what the motherboard is, but the computer itself is an Alienware Aurora R5. Edit: this is the info that Windows 10 shows about my motherboard. I obscured the serial number because it might be dangerous to share that:
  8. Okay, bit of an update, the HDCP error has returned. It seems that it only disappeared for a short time. Now I'm back at square one. Here's a pastebin with all of SteamVR's logs in it: https://pastebin.com/jQGjf45A Additionally, here's the specs of my gaming rig: Intel Core i7-6700K NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 16 GB DDR4 RAM Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Build 18363
  9. Okay, this one is a doozy. I've spent weeks on this issue with little to no progress. Let me explain this from the beginning. I saved up some money and wanted to buy a Vive because my friends each had one, and because it was upgrade-able with leg trackers. I didn't have the money to buy one brand new, so I went on ebay. I found a seller who was selling one. It was, according to the listing, fully tested, guaranteed to work, in great shape, and included everything. The seller had a 100% satisfaction rating from the 2,000+ sales he'd done, so I bought it. After it arrived, I set it a
