Question HTC Vive Controller not working

Hi there,

I have successfully loaded the example script with the Vive headset working flawlessly. However i cannot seem to get the controllers to work. I ran the example script but cannot see the controllers. The controllers are on and they work in other applications.

Any help is much appreciated.

Are there any controllers returned by the steamvr.getControllerList() command? Does the following print 'connected' for each controller?

import viz
import steamvr


hmd = steamvr.HMD()
if not hmd.getSensor():
	sys.exit('SteamVR HMD not detected')
for controller in steamvr.getControllerList():
	print 'connected'

They work now, but only when they are turned on before running my code. Thanks for help.

I have the same problem.
Although the controller preferences in steamVR is fine, it doesn't work in vizard program.

When I write codes as below,
for controller in steamvr.getControllerList():
	print 'vive controller connected'

for device in steamvr.getControllerList(): #check VR device
	print device
it says
steamvr.dle              	SteamVR Extension
vive controller connected
vizconfig shows the window as attached image, but any keys don't work. Also, I tried viztask.waitSensorDown(controller, steamvr.BUTTON_TRACKPAD), but it never work.

Hi Roy,

If you go to tools- vizconnect and choose the SteamVR preset, then go to start page- advanced- inputs do you see a green button or red x next to the r_hand_input and l_hand_input?

Also, the controllers are showing as lit up in SteamVR?
