Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Re-casting my Hololens/Xbox question

Hello All
I want to re-cast my question from September 2018, does the Hololens O/s has an Event Viewer similar to Control Panel on Windows? Meaning using the Hololens portal tool’s and traces to determine any Bluetooth specific errors within my application does not revile anything.
So my question is re-cast as follows; “How can I trace/try catch/debug when my Hololens looses Bluetooth connection to xbox controller?”
I’m at my wits end as my projects relies heavily on the xbox controller, an my development has come to a complete stand still because of this issue.

Any help, comments are welcome.

    Hello All
    Today I made some progress on my issue, since September 2018 I posed a question surrounding what seems as the XBOX Controller seemingly losing connection to the HoloLens. So, while running my experience the Hologram object would stay stuck in the last state of position/rotation. The controllers left stick, right stick and button mapped for use would become unresponsive.
    So today I went through the device portal for anything that would shed some light, which it did not. However, I did notice an odd behavior and that is that if I lose XBOX connectivity with the Hologram, when I navigate within the device portal to Bluetooth status page, the connection is restored and Xbox doesn’t lose it connection. The experience works fine, while I have this page open on the Device Portal.
    Can anyone assist me to understand why this is? Basically is this a normal behavior?
