I have a shortish usb 3.0 extension that worked fine for oculus rift, but when i plugged in the Pimax 5k plus, it wasnt detected.
I think it was under 10 foot in length.
Also… in terms of display port extension cables, are there any in the neighborhood of 10 foot that are known to work?
I was going to give this 10 foot display port extension a shot:
EDIT: actually, in my other room i have the vive control box hooked up with hdmi already ran to the pc in that room… are there any hdmi to display port adapters that would work (would need to be hdmi male to female dp, not seeing many in this arrangement)
As far as the power adapter that connects onto the cable, has anyone found 3rd party ones that work (i move the headset from one room to another)… i assume anything that matches the v/amps should work?
Revisiting this for the second power adapter need…
I took a look at those threads, unfortunately they are in a closed state so i cant reply to confirm, but,
The one thread mentions using this adapter (though it appears to only be 1amp?):
But something (an issue?) about the led on the headset turning red. Unsure if the adapter was ok or not.
It seemed as if this might be a good secondary adapter, but i’m unsure. I would have assumed as long as 12v and no more than 2 amps it should be fine but i’m a bit timid to plug something in to the $700 goggles that could fry them without being certain haha.
Well this amazon one technically is 1amp, i’m not sure how it was working for the person that mentioned it.
I think there is the other issue of polarity. I’m afraid to look for a second hand adapter i may have and test it, if the polarity might be wrong. Guessing bad things could happen. The store on pimax should just offer the ability to but secondary ones, ideally.
