Hello. I’ve been struggling with this for a few hours now.
I have an HTC-Vive and a Kinect One.
I get through everything pretty much fine, however once I get into SteamVR home,
the Vive controllers only track for a few seconds before going all nuts and floating away from me. When I click the menu button, it sometimes repositions them back to normal position (in my hands), but only for a maybe 15 seconds or less before the controllers start floating off in space and then distorting the avatar.
I’ve noticed that under “Devices” they show up fine, however under “Hand Controllers”, the Vive controllers are not listed at all, so I’ve been choosing OFF. Am I suppose to use something else perhaps? It seems like the Kinect is trying to track the my hands rather than the vive controllers and quickly disconnects from them, instead of the controllers themselves being recognized and functioning as the hand tracking as they normally do, and this is making them drift and disconnect somehow.

Also, is there a trick to entering the VR mode during calibration? Whenever I launch SteamVR, SteamVR Home automatically opened in my Vive set. So I turned that off from default, and now whenever I open SteamVR, a Vive homescreen opens in the Vive set. So I can’t get to any in-the-headset calibration instructions. Can anyone please help me?
