Hey there guys, I've been inactive for quite a while.
Recently I got a new laptop, I used to have a desktop with an Intel Core i7-1700KF and an RX 580 8GB with 32GB RAM. Now I have an Intel Core i7-11370H with an RTX 3060 6GB GPU and 8GB of RAM (planning to upgrade to 32GB).
Before ordering the laptop, I made sure that there was at least some way to connect my laptop to my oculus, and I found out that there are USB 3.2 Ports and also a Thunderbolt 4 port (The Thunderbolt 4 Port is capable of DisplayPort passthrough)
I have a Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) to DisplayPort adapter, and after waiting ten seconds for the USB Connection to Initialise via the Oculus App, I plugged in the USB C to DisplayPort with the Oculus connected.
The USB 3 Connection does initialise in the app, with a green tick, but when I plug in the Oculus Rift S' DisplayPort, there is nothing at all.
Here are some pictures:
Note: When I connect the Thunderbolt DisplayPort, the windows device connection sound plays and the screen flickers. Nvidia Control Panel also detects the Rift S as "TV"
Could this be a problem because the Thunderbolt 4 DisplayPort passthrough is via the laptop's iGPU?
Are there any workarounds for this?
