I used TrackIR in the sim right from the start. And it was totally reliable with no failures for the first 3 months(ish).
Starting sometime this month (November), MSFS seems to randomly lose its connection to TrackIR and becomes unable to re-establish it.
I don’t believe this to be a hardware issue, as the TrackIR software is running just fine, the left light indicates that my headpiece is recognized and within range, and within the TrackIR software, all my head movements are recognized without issue.
The problem seems to be solely the connection to MSFS. MSFS seems to lose the connection and does not want to re-establish it once lost. The only way to re-establish a connection is to restart the sim. Sometimes it won’t even connect right from starting the sim. Other times it will be connected and then lose its connection mid-flight.
I have tried many variations, including running TrackIR before and after starting the sim. Rebooted many times. TrackIR is fully up-to-date. (Just checked again.) Restarted TrackIR many times, and even unplugging and plugging it in. Cycled the TrackIR option within the sim’s camera menus. MSFS just loses all recognition that TrackIR exists until the sim restarts.
It’s strange because it was completely reliable before, but the last few weeks it seems like less than 50% of my flights will have TrackIR last until the end.
Anyone else experience a decrease in reliability over Nov 2020?
