I have a 5k+ with the index controllers and I wanted to resurrect my old Vive controllers as trackers for use with Natural Locomotion. I don’t have two additional tracker watchman dongles, and they seem impossible to find, but the Vive HMD has two dongles built in along with a USB hub. Why not try to use that?
So I powered up the 5k+, and I’ve got a green light on the headset and Pitool finds the headset and the index controllers. Then I plugged in the Vive HMD through the linkbox, plugging in only power and the USB and leaving the HDMI disconnected. Windows finds the drivers, including the watchman dongles, so I figure I’m off to a good start. However, once the Vive is set up the green light on the 5k+ turns red and Pitool claims the headset is disconnected.
Power off the Vive, and Pitool can find the 5k_+ again.
Can the 5k+ and the Vive coexist at least to the point that I can use the tracker dongles built into the Vive? Has anyone else gotten this to work? I’m using the 254 version of Pitool.
