I got v28 of the desktop app a few days ago and the v28 for the headset just installed early tonight. However, I can not find any option to enable air link. I've gone into settings - beta on the desktop app and there's nothing there. And I've gone into the experimental settings on the headset and there's nothing there either. I do have the option though to enable the 120 refresh rate. So v28 did indeed get installed.
I tried resetting experimental features twice but it didn't help.
Is everyone supposed to get the option to turn on airlink as soon as you get the v28 update? If so, any ideas why I'm not getting it?
"Looks like the excitement over Air Link can’t be contained, so we’re officially making it available today for everyone who has both Quest and PC v28. If you don’t have v28 yet, stay tuned, it’s coming very soon!"
I just checked, got it now. You have to restart the desktop software and reset the quest experimental features for the options to show up.
So, after a quick try... utterly unusable. It looks nice, but I'm getting 3 second lag on the video, which includes timewarp, (so it's trying to timewarp 3 seconds behind by head movements). No problems with Virtual Desktop on the same system.
That's not even in a game, just Dash in the bare empty world.
Hopefully this is just because they rushed it out.
Ok finally able to test Airlink
A few advices so far :
It was very laggy on my 5ghz hotpsot so I lowered the encoding bitrate to 125 in oculus debug tool. It's far better. Also I lowered my res to 1x since I used to be at 1.3x. Tried at 72 fps so far. I'll give it another try at 90 fps and keep fine tweaking it. But it's already usable for me to test my contents in development without being annoyed by a 5 m cable when sitting at my desk...
it just showed up for me as well. I'm not home right now so I had to test it using my laptop which is on wifi (5ghz). I did a quick test with minecraft and it worked well. No issues with that. The only thing that wasn't working was being able to see my desktop. That just gave me a blank window in VR. I'll try it again later when i get home since my PC is higher end and connected via ethernet.
Turns out I had an encode override in the debug tool I'd forgotten about. I cleared that to zero, and it's running fine now.
I just loaded Half Life Alyx, it's fine over air link. I only just woke up so my eyes are still adjusting to being open, but everything looked good.
