Oculus Quest 2 Link Cable

I just bought an Oculus Quest 2 and a link cable.  The link cable is USB-C from the Oculus to a USB.  I plugged the USB into my tv UBS port and the tv recognizes that I plugged in the Oculus Quest 2, but it won't show what the headset is showing.  The tv screen says Oculus Quest 2 at the top left corner, No Content in the middle of the screen, and an Options in the bottom right.  I click on Options and it only says Refresh, but when I click Refresh nothing changes.  The tv screen still says No Content.

Can the Oculus Quest 2 not be connected to a tv ?  Or if it can, what am I doing wrong ?  Do I need a HDMI to a USB-C  ?  Please let me know at your earliest convenience, thanks.

The link cable is meant to be connected to a PC, not a TV.
I doubt that your TV will be able to do anything more than recognize the oculus.

The link is not a cable to stream your oculus on a screen,
it is meant to allow your oculus to draw from the processing power of your PC
in order to acces games that were meant for the oculus rift.

Ahhh, so if I plug it into my computer, I still couldn't see anything on the computer monitor, right ?  Well that kinda sucks but it doesn't make the Quest 2 any less awesome.  I got the 256GB version so it was a little spendy but very worth it.  I was just hoping for some way to let other people see what I'm seeing.

Quick question since you brought up the Rift.  If I buy Minecraft for the Rift on my computer and connect my Quest 2 to my computer, can I play Minecraft on my Quest 2 ?

Sorry for the questions but I'm not that technically adept.  Thanks for any help in advance.

The quest 2 is sort of a hybrid system.

80 Percent of the time it is a stand alone unit.

20 Percent if you have the computer specs see below link - You can use it as a pcvr headset. (link cable requirement)

So if your computer meets those specs - download the rift software

then proceed to link setup

That said if you want to project what you see in the ques on to the tv, you need a chrome cast and you can cast your gameplay on tv for others to watch.

Is there a way to connect my quest 2 to my tv with a differnet cable in order to show what the headset is showing? My Wi-Fi is slow and I don't have chromecast
