when I try to record or cast in Passthrough mode, the result is a black screen.
How can I ALLOW* the device to capture user experience??

thanks

I dont think you can within the Quest .. BUT ..
Easiest way i found was to use Link or virtual desktop then record the screen playing on your PC Desktop rather than trying to record from the Quest. Worked well to demonstrate the Guardian to my friends. 
Dunno if that info helps or not

I haven't been able to record passthrough since upgrading to Quest 2. I have not had time to check if the Quest 1 still lets you record passtrough. But it is becoming a problem because I really need recording of passthrough for my demo videos. So any inoput on this would be great. Will make sure to post an update when I've checked if Quest 1 still works.
