delivery confirmed for today, yay. taste test comin …
… and here it is. Little disappointed as it was already tasted by someone or something
But it needs to be done anyway. Pls prepare the cutlery
Fortunately the filling was untouched. Overall taste of the outer packaging can be described simply as industrial with the traces of cargo truck and delivery van
Finally something with full taste!
I need you here @cib , all those tastes I cant describe
And the modular audio strap
Before installing the modular audio strap, the comfort kit needs to be detached
cable management is not particularly described in any included manual/quickguide or on web. I found some description on openmr formus. Added my comments :
New cable have these connectors
1x DisplayPort (DP, you know)
1x USB 3.0 (blue usb)
1x USB 2.0 for extra power supply (black usb)
The USB 2.0 can be connected to either an extra USB slot on your PC/laptop, a USB charger adapter or a USB Hub.
I connected usb 3.0 to MB and usb 2.0 to powered usb hub.
First I installed PITOOL downloaded from pimax website. This is standard desktop sw app.
Then I installed STEAMVR from steam app. I went to my steam library, entered steamvr into search and proceeded.
Then I run all the sw and it independently powered the headset and proceeded with base stations and controller setup. As I own none I skipped what could be skipped and that was it.
Packaging, HW and SW installation - overall I have positive experience. Especially the SW setup was seamless. Thumbs up to them for PITOOL.
Only negative I see in missing proper quick setup guides inside the boxes (there were some but with little and not up to date info) and not up to date setup description on pimax website. So I had to spend some time googling for 100% matching info. One just dont want to guess and screw up something.
I will have to write them some feedback.
INSTALLATION OF HTC BASE STATION 2.0 :
I have added single base station to the setup. One important knowledge
POSITION OF BASE STATION
Please keep the distance more than 1.5m between the headset and base station when you are playing the game, or the tracking will be lost. Please also ensure that the height of the base station is about 2m.
All what is needed is to position the base station and connect the power cable. Then run the pitool / steamvr and the base station should find the HS automatically.
