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.

Use only home for Acer VR

Hi dear developers,

I am currently angry to develop with the Acer VR using my bright MSI backpack and walk around.

The issue is if I unplug all the screen but the Acer hmd, this one turn off.

I managed to plug a small screen and walk around freely (amazing works by the way ! I walk more than 100m without noticeable trouble). But that would be much better without any other screen than the HMD.

Maybe this is my graphic card that turn off?

Thanks for any help !


  • I found the same issue with the HPZ VR Backpack together with the Asus Mixed Reality Headset. Can't seem to enjoy the backpack together with the HMD, as soon as I unplug my monitor to go with my backpack, the HMD shuts down aswell.

  • @Orion @Natan_PMG did you guys tested more than on HMD with controllers using backpacks walking nearby together? Will the leds interfere other HMDs?
