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.
Surface Book vs. HP Reverb - a "no-go"?
I love my Surface Book 2 (15" with GTX 1070) and used it together with a Samsung Odyssey+ for the last months. This worked well with the Microsoft adapter (USB-C to HDMI).
Now, with the HP Reverb the connector has changed from HDMI to DisplayPort and it does not work with the original Microsoft adapter (USB-C to DP).
In the device manager I can see both the "HP Reverb VR Headset VR1000-2xxx" in "Mixed Reality Devices" as well as the "Mixed reality headset" in "monitors".
The MR-Portal behaves weird, it constantly switches from "Device is in sleep mode" to "check your display cable".
Any idea what needs to be done? Or is it not possible to run a HMD that needs DP from the Surface Book?
