It should do the same as the system button on either of the Index Controllers ie: take you back to Steam VR UI

Thanks a lot, yes it does do that (at times) with a single press and a double press to get the camera up. Didn't even notice that button until this morning!

That button is quite handy especially if your controllers are off or not being used.

I like the theory, but how is it possible to do anything with the controllers off when you get into the SteamVR menu?

Yesterday, i found that the knob for eye relief setting has 2 modes, you can press it in and turn it for fine tuning.

If you have your desktop up in the menu (pull up desktop in menu while controllers are still on) you can use kbm or just mouse

Yeah, I often take my headset off and use the mouse for SteamVR admin stuff.

Edit - never mind - deleted - should have just used the ignore function, rectified that now

So I just got done modifying my Vive Pro with the andi-SDE "Odyssey+" OLED panels and also added the non Fresnel GearVR lenses. Hardly any SDE, no god rays and the color/contrast beats out the Index.

I'm going to do more A/B comparison but I think the modified Vive Pro may be the better headset. Keeping the Index controllers though!

Guys, can you do me a favour and tell if you see either of these things in the ROV Test FOV and Resolution environment in SteamVR https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil...?id=1359389601
1) look at the red ball on the shelf in the FOV section. Is it jumping around when you stare at it?
2) look at the section with the parallel vertical black and white bars. Does the horizontal line at the top sort of jump around as well?
Any input appreciated.
