Hello,

I have a 10metre HDMI extension and it will only play audio over the cable, it does not detect the oculus headset and is a black screen?I plugged the 10metre HDMI extension into a tv and displays fine as an extra screen? What can I do to make this work?

10metre usb extensions are fine and working for me

Thanks for your help

    Does this plug in at the start of the wire or end? Any loss of image or any problems?

    Extension cables can work, but can be a hit or miss (especially over 3 meters). Audio works over USB, so that has nothing to do with the HDMI cable.

    Its a female female connector.
    so it will plug between the Rift cable and your hdmi cable.
    you might need a male male connector to bridge this to your current cable.

    the repeater is labeled in and put at its ends make sure the end labeled IN is closest to your PC with OUT sending signals to your Rift.
    WAAAGH!
