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.

Is there a driver specification available for the immersive HMDs?

edited July 2017 in Q&A and Discussions

I am attempting to write a driver to interface the immersive line of mixed reality headsets with OpenVR so that they will work with SteamVR. Are there any specifications available that explain the expected request/response packets for the USB interface? I am assuming that all positional/rotational data is sent over USB and that I can ignore the HDMI interface.

Does Microsoft already plan to do this for us? I've heard from two people that they plan to work with Valve, but I have a feeling it's just a rumor.
