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.

Mixed Reality Portal doesn't mirror headset view

I just received my HP MR headset. I managed to connect it to the MR portal. When the device is connected, I see the view through the headset but the view is not mirrored on the MR portal screen. Is there a way to have it show what the headset is seeing?


  • In the shell (virtual house), open the shell menu (bloom equivalence - press "Windows" key). At the bottom, you should see "Camera" and "Preview". Preview is the one you are looking for.

  • Same issue: the MR Portal shows a static image when using a headset, not mirroring what is displayed in the headset. However, I see "Camera" but no "Preview" after pressing the "Windows" key.

    This system isn't equipped with a discrete graphics card, but is using an i7-7700. Is the lack of a graphics card the reason why all of this functionality is disabled?
