TrackIR starts jumping after a hour of use

Post by cessnaman » Wed Feb 08, 2012 5:13 am

When in fs2004 with a 1.5 to 2 hrs of flying, trackir starts jumping all over the place. I'm not sure what would cause this.
The flight starts out fine, no problems at all, but after an hour or so (more closer to 2 hrs of flight)trackir get so erratic, slight head movements or no head movements and trackir jumps all over the place. Even turns view upside down.
Short flights seem to be ok. Thought this could be a light issue, but I'm not sure due to things working fine at first.
I'm using Seth flight profile which is an excellent profile, works best for me.
I'm using Trackir 4 with pro clip and ver.5 software.
Sorry if I didn't post this in the right place.

If it starts jumping, can you alt-tab to the TrackIR software and check for IR interference behind you? The camera's view should be in the top right corner. Any red would be indicative of interference.
