PPT causing height problem

For some reason, whenever I have my PPT computer connected and active with my rendering computer, the default viewpoint becomes 2 or 3 times higher than a person should be. When I run the program without PPT going, the point of view spawns at a normal height. I'm wondering if it's a problem with my code (I got thrown headfirst into this level of programming)
Code:
import viz
import math
import vizmat
import vizinfo
import vizact
from lookingat import LookingAt
viz.go()


#adds the ppt
PORT_PPT = 1
ppt = viz.add('vizppt.dls')

ppt.command(3,"",1,1,5) #scales ppt tracking on xyz axis
  

#collisions on
viz.collision(viz.ON)
view = viz.get(viz.MAIN_VIEWPOINT)
view.rotate(0,1,0,90)

#gonna comment out the collision for now, it's registering when the avatar touches
#ground as a collision

#This function is called when a collision occurs
def mycollision(info):
	print 'Collided'


#Create a callback for a collision event
viz.callback(viz.COLLISION_EVENT, mycollision)

PORT_INTERSENSE = 2
isense = viz.add('intersense.dls') 
tracker = viz.add('intersense.dls')
viz.tracker()
tracker.reset()

def mykeyboard(key):
	
	#If the R key is pressed, reset the head orientation
	if key in ['r','R']:
		tracker.reset()

#Create a keyboard callback
viz.callback(viz.KEYBOARD_EVENT,mykeyboard)


#Add the street and drop it a little bit to be below the avatars feet.
street = viz.add('objects/bspcity.bsp')
street.translate(0,-.2,0)


males = []
females = []
walking = []
whichturn = 0

#List the timers.
WALKING = 0
BLINDWALK = 1
BLINDLOOK = 2
MALEMEETING = 3
FEMALEMEETING = 4
SITTINGWOMAN=5
FREEZESITTER=6
THROWINGMAN =7
HOLDVIEW = 8
TIMING = 9

#Add the heads for the males.
maleheads = ['Male/heads/M-015-2L.vzf','Male/heads/M-056L.vzf', 'Male/heads/M-063L.vzf']
femaleheads = []
bodyparts = ['male_legs.cmx','male_torso_LS.cmx','male_shoes.cmx']
maleclothes = ['Male/clothes/male1.jpg','Male/clothes/male2.jpg','Male/clothes/male3.jpg']
#Make some avatars.
for i in range(3):
	male = viz.add('male.cfg')
	male.translate(i,0,0)
	male.visible(0,'male_head.cmx')
	male.face(maleheads[i])
	clothes = viz.add(maleclothes[i])
	for j in bodyparts:
		male.texture(clothes,j)
	males.append(male)

viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,ontimer)

viz.callback(viz.KEYDOWN_EVENT,onkeydown)

As an aside, there's an extra female model spawning across the "street" from the spawn point and I can't figure out where the heck she's coming from. If anyone notices before I can find it, I'd appreciate it

Try adding the following line to your script:
Code:
viz.eyeheight(0)
The default eye height is 1.8 meters, and it will be added to the Y position of your tracker. Setting it to 0 will simply apply the raw tracking data to the viewpoint height.

Thanks, that fixed everything up for me.
And I found where the random extra avatar was coming from.
