There should be no reason to do the mod anymore with the slip on clip as I suspect the cable may be getting damaged by putting those sharp bends in them for the mod. Just my two cents, take it for what is worth.
Yeah I actually undid the mod at this point and its at least not worse. I never introduced any sharp curves in the cable either, I just ziptied the connector to the side of the set to keep things linear.

"IMPORTANT: You cannot return any item without an RMA number and the manufacturer's packaging. Do NOT return items to the originating warehouse. You MUST obtain an RMA number first. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Defective and factory sealed items can be returned for replacement, store credit, or refund within 30 days of the purchase date. "Defective" means an item is non-functioning, incompatible with your operating system, or doesn't function as described or advised by the manufacturer. "Factory Sealed" means an item is in 100% resalable condition, with all manufacturer's seals intact. "Purchase Date" is the day we shipped your order, noted on your receipt. You must obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number from us to process any return or replacement, within 30 days of the purchase date. You MUST obtain an RMA number online at ShopBLT.com, using the Returns / Exchanges link. RMA numbers are NOT issued by telephone. You cannot return, replace, claim a lost shipment, or request an RMA number 31 days or more after the purchase date. RMA requests submitted on or after 5:00 PM eastern time are treated as submitted on the following business day."

I would so try to RMA it with a new one. You may qualify, and who knows, ShopBLT might replace it with a newer one made week 31 or more. Cant hurt to find out.
I guess it might qualify for defective, but HP should replace it under warranty. And HP might have newer versions to ship out.

At least one has a Gen 2 and said no problems so far. I think it was a week 31 build. Maybe Wmacky. I think the guys in Australia are just receiving the Gen 2's first.

I first noticed, "snow" kind of like you used to get with old TV's when the reception was not good, overlayed on the scene to varying degrees when I looked down and right.

Then trying to "fix" this problem by turning the cable resulted a loss of one eye picture (black) then Both.

Further futzing with the cable restored the system to function, but I'm still getting periodic snow and random black outs.

I'm gonna contact HP soon to get it exchanged.

Anyone get a Gen2 version yet?

How fast is the exchange process? Do I need to send it in and then they exchange it, or do they send me one, and I send the bad one back. (Pro Version)

Received my Reverb Aug. 17 in USA. Guess you would call it a Gen 2, as it is a 931 serial. No issues so far, but only have about 6 hours on it.

I think that is a Gen 2. Great!

I see HP store (US) at least has them in stock and says shipping within 24 hours.

I received a 930 serial in Australia last week, 10 hours in and it runs beautifully so far, although it did take a while to get settings I was happy with.


I do have the misaligned projection issue that seems to be common with WMR headsets in DCS though - ED brought out a fix for the O+, so hopefully they will bring out one for the Reverb soon as well, preferably before I can no longer walk in straight lines IRL...

on the Gen 2. I have heard of a few complain of that alignment issue but I have not noticed it on two.

I plan on returning my Gen 1 on Friday to Best Buy but they claim that HP is not yet shipping the fixed Standards to replace it with which is all they want to carry. I may have a bit of a gap without one unless I get another Pro from HP.

For those looking for a 3D printed prescription lens holder I found the Vive pro one designed for use with Gear VR lens mod drops straight in. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2869900
Use it with the $9.95 Zenni optical 41mm round lens. I found it might be a bit deep and push against my cheeks so I cut off about a third of an inch off the bottom using Prussia slicr and it fits great (rotate 180deg to print with no supports at .3 Layer height). They drop in and are held by the face mask....you could probably tape it in but mine seem secure.These are the lenses
