Yeah, awesome, a lot of laptops cannot provide enough power via USB (can't handle the load of all the sensors + HMD) so the screen cannot power up. (the sound will be on via the headphones but the screens will be black)
Hi guys. I was able to get the my HTC Vive link box to work. My power adapter was turned to max at 12 volts to get it to work. Make sure you get a power adapter that you can up the volts.
I also got a hdmi switcher and this worked. But the power cable did not work plugged into the socket. The switcher had a power usb option. So used a USB adapter for the 2 sensors and plugged the switcher into the laptop. For some reason this worked.
Hope this helped.
