Preparing your headset for streaming
Your headset needs to be set up before you can use VIVE Streaming. Here's what you need to set up on your headset to use VIVE Streaming:
- Make sure you've set up your play area on your headset. This is done on the headset, not from SteamVR or VIVE Streaming.
Make sure all headset settings are set correctly:
- System and software updates
- Network connection
- Audio settings
- Controller pairing
All of these settings are managed by the headset, and cannot be overridden by SteamVR or VIVE Streaming.
- Make sure the latest version of VIVE Streaming is installed on the headset. On your PC, open the VIVE Streaming Hub settings, and then go to About. On the VIVE Streaming tab, click Install next to VIVE Streaming app. Then follow the onscreen instructions to install the update.
