Currently known issues
In case you have an ASMedia USB 3.0 controller, there's a known issue that in some cases they do not support enough bandwidth for the EyeX to run. If you have an ASMedia USB 3.0 controller and you can't use your EyeX, try the following:
- Move all your other devices to another USB controller to give more bandwidth for the eye tracker.
- Try plugging in the eye tracker into a USB 2.0 port to install the drivers and the firmware update, then move back the eye tracker to your USB 3.0 port.
So if you have an ASMedia USB 3.0 controller and none of the alternatives above help, we recommend you to get a new USB 3.0 controller installed. If you're still having issues, please submit a request and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
