Re: Beta version crash

<t>Thank you, I've just emailed support. Concerning the workaround I mentioned: well it was just to good to be true .. after running stable in NT4 compatibility mode for two days, the beta has gone back to crashing on start today, all other things constant as far as I can see. So compat. mode does n...

Re: Beta version crash

<r>Similar problem here, V5B3/XPProSP3/TrackIR5 crashes on launch 99,9 (just not 100%) of the time. Starting it up without it crashing was like finding the amulet of Yendor in nethack, if that gives you an idea of how often it will crash <E>:-)</E><br/> <br/> I initially suspected a compatibility pr...

Re: This thing gets so hot!

<r>Hi,<br/> <br/> thank you very much for your replies.<br/> <br/> @Vincent:<br/> <br/> I am using the Trackclip, so the IR LEDs are on, yes. I guess this is probably causing more heat?<br/> <br/> @Jim<br/> <br/> Thank you for the statement on the chip rating, certainly its not getting _that_ hot, s...

This thing gets so hot!

<t>Well I read somewhere on the site that with the TrackIR 5, Naturalpoint tried to improve heat dissipation compared to the V4 hardware (which I didn't own).

This hub is integrated in my TFT monitor.<br/> <br/> The hub inside the G15 keyboard that the joystick is connected to is a passive USB 1.1 hub. This hub's uplink g...

Re: Conflicting Saitek vs. TrackIR USB drivers?

<t>The TrackIR is connected to a hub. My logitech G15 keyboard is connected to the same hub. Lastly, the Saitek Stick is connected to the logitech G15 hub. So they're not on adjacent USB ports, but on the same usb bus chain, going into the same root hub in the end.<br/> <br/> The stick software has ...

I think I might have run into compatibility problems with conflicting Saitek products and would like to know if there are any known issues with this combination. My box runs XP Pro and I have a Saitek AV8R Joystick with t...
