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.

How to pair HL with a Wii remote?

Nintedo Wii remote controller implements HID Bluetooth profile and is listed by HoloLens as a Bluetooth device.

The problem is that it requires a PIN code that is equal to device address in hexadecimal format written backwards. To pair Wiimote with address 00:1E:A9:5D:A6:BC I need somehow pass 6 byte string with characters having hex codes BC, A6, 5D, A9, 1E, trailing 00.

How to enter non-printable characters on the HoloLens onscreen keyboard? Is it possible to enter a character by its hex code?



  • @Victor_MUC were you ever able to have any luck with this? Would love to get wand input going with Hololens since hands can be pretty fatiguing.

  • I wonder if this process would work, aka, just don't give it a code and see if it connects.
