Rift uses HDMI 1.3, I don't believe you need any fancy HDMI 2.0 gear.

Let me just order a few adapters and try it out to be sure since people keep asking.

Cool, thanks!

Please consider testing the nice little passive model by StarTech, which appears to be fairly widely available:

It lacks HDMI 2.0, but given it's 4K support, I'd hope would be robust enough for CV1's 2160x1200x90hz.

Oh, I just placed the order for a bunch of adapters and cables (though not the StarTech one).

Let me first see if anything of these work at all and then I can look at trying different brands.

I idea that a cheap dp to hdmi 1.4 convertor sounds like it should work.

The only worry I have is they are active adapters, no worry on quality but does that add latency?

Good job Cyber, it does seem some testing is needed.

In the case of DVI -> HDMI, since it's the same signal (well, without audio) it shouldn't change anything. I don't know for DisplayPort but it sould be the same deal...

(DK1 and DK2 with the most recent runtime (direct driver mode) works well with the adapters that were given with them.)

Just use DisplayPort if your monitor have it, leave HDMI for the CV1.

If the rift is only hdmi 1.4a then a displayport adaptor should be easy to get, you will need the hdmi2 port for your 4k tv other wise it will drop to 30hz.

I read on Oculus's site that cannot use an adapter to HDMI for the rift, and that you have to use the direct HDMI port on your dedicated graphics card. Using an adapter may not work, not sure if it's just a strong suggestion, or a technical impossibility but I'd keep that in mind, or hopefully someone who has tested could check.
