Samsung Slate motion sensors do not appear to work with Windows 8

    Question

  • I'm using the Samsung Slate 7 with W8 and have a problem getting readings from any of the motion sensors.  I discovered it while writing a sensor app using the inclinometer classes.   I found that my pitch and roll axis always register 0 and yaw 360.  They never change.  I then tried running the sample sensor applications and found I was getting zeros there as well.  I tried several samples, compass, inclinometer, accelerometer; all returned the same results.  I did notice that when I toggled the sensor to "Disable" in the sample apps, an error is thrown for the line that is setting the ReportInterval back to 0.  I uninstalled sensors and reinstalled, also tried to search for new drivers.  No luck with any of these.  Orientation awareness is working fine; just finished another store app that is using orientation awareness. Any other ideas on this?
