Recommended Posts

just so that its clear the elite faceplate doesn't come with anything? like is it literally just the face plate, I know you have to either buy or have the base stations and wands but what about the cords and link? or am I ok if I have an og Vive and just put the faceplate on is my cosmos good to go?

If you already have an OG Vive w/basestations/controllers you should be able to slap the new Elite faceplate onto your OG Cosmos and be good to go with your OG Vive base stations/controllers.  Well, at least after you redo your SteamVR room setup.  I think the new Elite faceplate still comes with a free copy of Half Life Alyx and probably 2-3 months VivePort Infinity sub (which you can add onto your current sub if you have one).  No other cables are included, you can just use your OG Cosmos cables/linkbox.  However, if you want to be able to turn your base stations off from SteamVR with BlueTooth then you may need to purchase a Vive Pro Linkbox because I don't think that the OG Cosmos Linbox (or even the convertor that comes with the Elite bundle) includes BT.  Hope this helps.

OK, thanks for clarifying that mate.  A few months ago I asked about using my Cosmos wireless with the Elite faceplate and a mod (Vibra?) with my Vive PRo base stations/controllers and I thought he mentioned for me yo keep my Pro LinkBox connected for BT to control my base station power options.  Maybe I misunderstood.  Thanks.
