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.

Dell Visor - Displays will not initialise


PC passes all tests in portal but HMD displays fail to initialise. Connected to Radeon RX580 and tried various configurations. HDMI to HMD Display port to tv, Display port to HDMI adapter to HMD - HDMI to TV. All get nothing on the HMD displays. If i extend the desktop, I can get the HMD screens to work as a second screen, but I get nothing through the portal. Searched through various forums but to no avail. Really struggling!


  • Any update on this issue? I am having the same thing and it seems this is a known problem back from Feb 2018.
