I followed the setup guide on: https://www.nolovr.com/user-guideen
Got everything paired fine (green lights), but when I check the driver context menu, it says that I have connected 3 base stations. Also, vive home does not recognize any controllers. The 360-turn-around double click does work, though. But that's the only controller function that works.
When I launch the driver demo, the controllers are being tracked and I see them move on the screen.
Update: It does not seem to make a difference wether I connect through GearVR or Cardboard
