Hi Michael, form the sound of (it with you looking at the floor) yout TIR sensor might be a bit too close to the reflector. Try my setup of:

TIR-Vector 90cm (30")
Sensor 5cm above the top reflector

I would also use a different cap to the TrackHat or cover the front reflector on the peak.

With the tracking window open can you see any other hotspots?

At the bottom of the tracking window (whist in editing the profile) try increasing "light filtering", "Use Blue LED" and Dot are all on.

Sometimes profiles that are made in older versions of the drivers do not work correctly in later drivers, what I would sugest is to write down the settings and copy them over to a new profile and delete the old one.

Good Luck

michael,

I am sure we can find out what the problem is.

Can you be more specific as to what is not working? Have all the drivers installed without problems. Is it the unit that is not working or the profile?

The distance sounds right, Michael. You might also need to tip your hat back on your head a bit. If you wear the cap low on your forehead the reflectors aim down and not directly at the camera. Tipping the cap (and therefore the reflectors) back returns them to pointing at the camera properly. Give that a shot.
