How to turn off the IR LEDs

Post by Catch22 » Fri May 01, 2009 1:21 am

I just installed the TrackIR v5 software for my TIR4, and I was wondering how to turn off the 4 red IR LEDs using the new software. I don't need them on since I use the TrackClip Pro.

Hello:

If you select the TCP from the tracking selection buttons, top left hand corner, it will automatically turn the IR LEDs off for you and it will also change the light filtering to be optimized for the TCP.

You are referring to the TrackClipPro button under Basic Settings?

It must be a bug then, because it doesn't seem to turn off the LEDs on my TIR4.

I was just about to post the same question.

The only way I can turn the 4 IR LEDs off is to exit the application.


FYI, I am running Vista64, TrackIR5 Beta 1 on a TrackIR 4 Pro device and Track Clip Pro (which is selected BTW) in the software.

Kindest regards

Good find. Just checked my TIR 4 vs. 5, and the 4 is not turning IR LEDs off when in TCP mode for me either. I'll pass this along to the dev team.

Hey Guys,

We've been looking at this earlier this morning and sure enough all is fine with T5s but T5 software with T4 camera shows this.

A fix is in palce and will be available in the next software revision.

Thanks for the report.
