Had to pay 26 import duty, which hurt a bit. But what hurt even more was that it was NOT the TrackIR2 as I had been promised. No free TrackHat either! Naturally I have sent an email of complaint. Anybody else had this?

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

Yeah, I'm in the UK, emailed them today and it is shipping either today OR Monday /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif They didn't make it at all clear on the website that what I though I was buying online was actually only a pre-order. Bit naughty.

Ordered it direct from the manufactures, Natural Point. With postage to the UK it came to $180. The point is, it was they who sent me an email to say would I like the TIR2 rather than the old TIR and I off course replied yes. Then they go and send the old one! Crazy.

A shame, I hope you will not have to pay import fees again for a replacement?

Hmmm


I just ordered my TrackIR2 from eDimentional a few days ago. I hope they send me the right one. I will be a little angry if they send the first version because I've put off buying first version since they annouced rev 2.

How do they work i have been pondering this i thought:

You look to the left side of the screen and the view trundles to the left like when you hold down your mouse wheel and scroll it side to side is that what happens?

Sorry guys, I must make a public apology to NaturalPoint. They replied to my email of complaint to explain that I had been sent a TIR2 but it was in the OLD versions box!! I had not noticed the tiny label stuck on one end that said this. So they are a good company after all!! Hoorah!

For those in question, just look at the unit.

If you have the low profile, wide, metal base, you have a TIR 2. The TIR 1 had a higher profile and very skinny metal base.

If you plug it in, select advanced mode, and the case glows blue, you have a TrackIR 2.

If you plug it in and you get a Red or Yellow LED color as well as a green LED color when your in the different pause, unpause, track, no track states, you have a TrackIR 2.

im in the uk so i ordered the track ir and 3d glasses from www.edimensional.co.uk (http://www.edimensional.co.uk) they sent me the 3d glasses (which i cant get to work properly but thats not the point) and an email telling me theyd send me track ir 2 instead of track itr 2 (woohoo!) but it hasnt arrived so i wondered if anyone in th uk had recieved theirs yet or if its just cos of the postal strike

In discussion with sales at natural point on Friday, I was told my returned old TrackIR was recieved and they would send me a new one in an old box. Of course this was great to me but can anyone tell me if I'll get the hat? I now use a visor with a reflector covered eraser cap sewn on the brim. I've now been without TrackIR for 3 days, I'm already jones'n.

EnragedChimp- my best guess is between next Monday and Tursday depending on the postage you pad for. That's if the get their cheeet together and are prompt about gettin these things out as soon as they are in. Apparently the latest they'll have TR2 in the distribution centre is this Monday...
