  • bilago wrote: This wont work, since your Rift's native resolution is 1080x1920 instead of 1920x1080. This is still a problem after you change the orientation of the monitor in the OS settings? That's odd.
  • I can't give specifics on DK2 since I'm still waiting for mine but it's my understanding that you should be able to use "extended desktop" mode (not direct). Then you can mirror the display the same as you would for DK1.
  • Make sure to protect your hardware. I have everything in my house plugged into a UPS or surge protector. Everything worth more than a couple hundred dollars has a UPS. I think I have five 1500VA UPS and a handful of others ranging from 650VA to 1…

  • McCa wrote: Is oculus working on a fix? If installing Intel SDE works for you, than your CPU doesn't support SSE4; which is currently required. Yes, Oculus is working on a fix to support older CPUs.

  • The quality of content and maturity on these forums have degraded so much.
  • Interesting perspective and feedback. I can't fully comment since mine has not arrived, but I don't completely agree. EarlGrey wrote: slightly better specs and different form factor. It's just an opinion, but I'm not sure how anyone can t…
  • mdk wrote: I'm fine with enthusiasts getting the DK2. Agreed. DarrenM wrote: That doesn't mean non-developers shouldn't be able to ask for help if they can't get it working or don't understand issues they're having. Is this a community…
  • iandanforth wrote: This is a technical question, not "what is the intent of this setting." What is the OS being told about the device when it's in this mode, and how is the video signal sent differently than when in extended mode? Thanks in adv…
  • GodzillaMustDie wrote: Wow, I am really getting tired of the "Dev" elitist attitude. This product was sold to devs and enthusiasts alike. It has nothing to do with being an "elitist". The product is specifically targeted for developers. The…
  • mattborkin wrote: But is it OK to update the DK1 using the dk2 firmware file? No. Just download the 0.3.2 SDK. You'll find the DK1 firmware file RiftTrackerFirmware_v0.18rc.ovrf in the OculusSDK\Firmware directory. Flash it with the Oculus…
  • mdk wrote: You know how some events like concerts sell out in minutes. Concerts have a finite number of seats per show per region. That's not really comparable.
  • nalex66 wrote: connecting camera crashes OVRService That sounds different if the service is crashing. You might want to try a clean reinstall of the Oculus runtime. I suppose it's also possible that erroneous data from an HMD with a hardw…
  • If you send me your DK2, I can find the problem. Seriously though, it does sound like a power issue. Some tips: * Do not use a USB hub unless it has a power supply * Note: I'm not sure if an external powered hub will increase lag. * R…
  • Just to offer additional feedback, I'm having the same issue as thealetree: My credit card was replaced, and the card you currently have on file is no longer valid. When trying to update with a new credit card I get the message: "Error: The prov…
  • PathogenDavid wrote: Oculus has separate people handling support stuff, and they need to have staff to process RMAs anyways because its inevitable that some dev kits will have unacceptable problems that make it through Q&A. Definitely. I…
  • museumsteve wrote: Of course I was only talking about the OLED PS Vitas, not the rubbish LCD ones now Lucky for me, it's one of the few times being an early adopter paid off.
  • kingzope wrote: I bought an iPad when it first got a high res display and out of the box it had one dead pixel. I was able to get it replaced with one that didn't. Hopefully the same thing goes for the rift. A dead pixel would be awful in a rif…
  • DK2 uses an OLED screen, it cannot have "stuck" pixels. Though, it could have dead pixels but I believe the possibility is far less than traditional LED screens. Honestly though, these are development kits. They're designed for product developm…

  • David, you're blaming everyone but yourself. What's worse, you're attacking people that have tried to help clarify the situation for you. I can understand that it's upsetting to make a purchase based on certain assumptions. In the future, it mi…
