I purchased TrackIR 5 little over a month ago and been thinking it must have been about the worst purchases I've ever made.

I was about to come here complaining about it and then stumbled to this thread. I have exactly the same issues as everyone else, red dots, lines, even the FOV being narrower and offset to the right.

Guess my unit was faulty straight from the box. And it looks like it's a widespread issue?

Vincent, is this a batch of faulty units as it seems to be happening a more frequently.

Unfortunately for me, I purchased mine overseas. I've already had to return one unit at great expense for postage. I'd hate to think that I might have to do it again (I'm waiting for the replacement to arrive as I type this).

Whilst I understand that's the risk you take when buying overseas, it still will come to a point where it's not viable to keep sending faulty units back.

My Supplier has been extremely helpful and understanding and I have a new unit on the way. Lets hope this one manages to behave.

Now I updated to latest version 5 beta and managed to restart the software several times in row without any problems.
