So, now a few of us have pre-ordered a nice new Rift-S, how are we going to replace our cv1 and setup our nice new Rift-S's with our current Oculus account?  Thanks.

    That is what I have read. Also, we use the same software 1.37

    Look at your Oculus desktop app. If you’re on 1.37, there’s an option to add an additional headset. Presumably you can have both registered on your account and app.

    Thanks mate, I now see this with 1.37 device tab.  I guess it will allow you to switch between your cv1 and Rift-S.  Maybe even use both at the same time?  We’ll all find out pretty soon.

    Yeah, I suspect that either you can set which one is the default headset, or perhaps it will just default to whichever headset gets activated first by the proximity sensor. 

    There are are a few YouTubers out there with active Rift S’s, so if you could get their attention here or on Reddit, they could probably let us know how it’s working now.

    Yeah this is a good question actually, as obviously we wouldn't want to go behind our PC and keep plugging in or unplugging each HMD every time you want to switch. Would be good to keep both plugged in at the same time and just use software to toggle between.

    I guess I will only use my Rift S when it comes and stop using my old Rift completely but I am going to try a few games on both side by side to test the difference in fps and visuals etc, just for curiosity purposes.
