After much trouble, mainly due to faulty 4 meter cable AND faulty long microUSB cable of my own, I now got my NOLO app to see ALL my NOLO devices as connected. Another problem I had was believing I had to connect the base station to the computer. Only the headset marker is supposed to be connected to the computer it seems.
So now I am trying to run SteamVR. Riftcat is working very well with my phone, but I noticed RiftCat was by deafault set to "SteamVR fake sensor" under the SteamVR options. SteamVR is not detecting anything other than the base sensor seemed to be connected.
Well, now I restarted it and it has connected my controllers... so seems the answer is the "SteamVR fake sensor" option should be off? It is still saying no base stations registered, not sure if that is how it is supposed to be. My headset is tracking using the Freetrack only option in Riftcat.
Excited to finally try this
