Anyone have TrackIR and wonder why it blinks a green light every six seconds when you are not using it?

It's Galen Thurber. He's watching you...

It's a geek-thing, like the little lights on fency new cell-phones or special DVD or CD-boxes.

In other words it's a "Hey, look at what I got here"-light. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It's picking up a reflection. In other words it's trying to track something. Unless you turn it off it will continue to find something to track.

I can only speak of TrackIR4 here - and that is definitely not picking up reflections every 7 seconds, even at night when everything is else is dark, including the IR-LEDs...

I have TrackIR3 Pro. I hope to get TrackIR4 soon. TrackIR3 definitely picks up reflections which causes it to blink. I guess you just have fancy lights on the TrackIR4.

U mean Galen is still around? He actually helped me a great deal once when a company wouldnt answer my emails about a key to use thier utility for EA's fighter anthologies.....he sent me the blasted key to reactivate it after i had a computer crash. I didnt think i should hve to buy the whole thing over again. I still remember those exchanges between him and his detractors on various forums. Man that was a ways back......
