TrackIR losing signal

In DCSW TrackIR loses it's signal when looking at about this angle, it has nothing to do with the profile in TIR, it's something to do with DCS. changing the profile settings or sensitivity doesn't help.

I can look fully up and look fully back. But looking up at an angle causes the game to lose the signal, I can see the camera light flicker off.

When using the NaturalPoint menu screen I have a full range of motion with no signal loss.

DCS adds some measure of interpretation to the default signal from the device that is messing up its range of motion.

Yes. I can use the camera tab in TIR and my reflectors are all centered. I can never lose the tracking when just looking at the TIR menu. It only happens when DCS is running. I've been using the same profile in DCS for years without any trouble. Something has changed with DCSW. It affects all the planes.

 

DCS has always been a bit off. It requires too much re-centering. TrackIR just running by itself never requires recenter no matter how much you move around. Other sims barely need recenter. But in DCS you can end up very far out of position.

This problem seems to have disappeared after the most recent update. TrackIR is working normally for me now.
