I just got my new 8k+ and was exited to test this since i never owned a HMD. I knew there would be problems but ill worked with computers all my life so how hard could it be! -i thought.
Oh man. How many threads are there with people struggling with this problem? And every solution feels like black magic. Like, install an older versions of Pitool and then upgrade inside the program then start Steam VR before Pitools second start but after a reverse reboot etc…
I have done it all now i think and done it on two computers, one with Nvidia 1080 and one with Amd RX vega 64.
My last guess now is that its the cables fault and on some GPUs the signal isn’t strong enough so the connections shuts down. I got the same error, when you see the desktop for some few seconds in the HMD when connection the cable before it disappears again, on other setups with like cheap long HDMI-cables.
Yes i tested them all.
And i got:
Asrock B450 pro
AMD ryzen 2700
And XFX rx vega 64.
And the other computer got a
Intel i5 4570k
Dont remeber the mobo
I also swiped the GPUs. And they all got the latest BIOS.
And tried every USB on it and with an powered USB-hub and even with and USB-A to USB-C adapter but no difference.
The amount of things to try are astronomical at this point. To test every release of Pitool with every firmware for the HMD with all releases of graphic drivers connected to every USB on the motherboard and every DP-port is just impossible.
I tested a HTC Vive and an Oculus Quest on this setup and they work.
Thanks but the 1080 got the latest firmware for the DP 1.4 support.
It’s quite confusing that the HMD is so picky when it comes to graphic cards.
The frustrating thing is that it feels like i fall on the finish line since the computers recognize the HDM screen and then looses it.
