I recieved my valve index controllers and 2.0 base stations yesterday and i have been trying to get them to work since than, unsuccessfully. I have my Pimax 5k+ sitting in my basement since i got it in March.
Whenever i open PiTools with the controllers powered off, one base station says it is working and the other one is undetected. When I turn the controllers on, the second base station starts flashing blue in PiTools and most often one of the controllers is working fine but the other one flashes blue as well. The only way I can get both controllers to work together is to have only one base station powered on.
The problem seems to come from both base stations being set on Channel 1 (according to steamVR) (although it could probably be something else). When I try to go to base station settings or bluetooth settings in SteamVR it just says “Bluetooth not available”. I tried to manually install the Vive lighthouse drivers from the SteamVR tool folder but it won’t help nor show in my Devices Manager’s bluetooth section.
I am pretty sure that my base stations are properly placed in my room as I screwed them to the walls about 6 inches below the ceiling, pointing at each other in 2 corners of my play space.
I am pretty much desperate now as I have been trying to fix this for about 10 hours now and nothing seems to work. Need help from you guys.
