does the on board mic work with with wireless ?

 

Not sure what you are asking? The onboard mic is part of the headset which has very fat wire going to it.

New failure. Not sure its WMR/reverb/DCS or whatever...

 

Headset froze the picture, however DCS kept running fine on the flat screen. Anyone seen that happen?

what I would like to know is if I buy wireless earbuds for the reverb do they have to have a mic or will the mic on the reverb still work in conjunction with the earbuds ?

I had that on my original reverb. Haven't seen it on the replacement yet. Yet.

 

So far the only problem I have had was yesterday evening the the display on the headset didn't start up until I rebooted the pc

You can still use the mic separately on the Reverb if using alternative headphones or speakers.

I believe you can set the reverb mic up for an input device in windows for something like SRS, and you can also specify a different output sound device for DCS.

 

The Reverb does have 3.5mm jack but in that case I think your earbuds also need to have a mic (80% sure based on the one time I did it).

Hm. Well at least its a known error. I'm leaning toward that being a more general WMR error as the display worked the whole time, and "tracking" did too. I managed to land the plane even after calling "Two's Blind!".

Flashlight is not working for me. I am seeing just a black circle but no camera view.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers

as long as windows recognizes them, you can manually set which sound and mic to use from WMR portal settings and steamVR setting, it hijacks the windows default sound and mic when WMR and SteamVR runs and there's also an option to set it back when HMD stops.

 

my reverb is called headphones and headset(Realtek USB2.0 Audio)

had that happened to me after having the pc on for a while without running VR, when I got the time it wouldn't come up. a faster way to fix it disable and reenable the HP reverb in device manager.

Yes, if you plug in the jack then it disables the mic in the headset. I use a separate mic I assign via Windows sound when I have my headphones plugged.

 

I tried wireless but got a sound delay, is there any work around for that?

Can someone help me with something please. I have just purchased a HP Reverb and used to play DCS with Oculus CV1. Since getting the HP Reverb I have unplugged Oculus CV1, but every time I start DCS in VR, I find that Oculus Home still loads up? I am not using Steam DCS I purchase my stuff directly from the DCS website. But why is Oculus Home starting up when I play DCS with HP Reverb now? I don't want to uninstall Oculus home because I have games I might want to play at a later date. Any help with this would be great. Cheers!

I had the same problem until stopping the Oculus runtime service or uninstall Oculus software. As I use some Oculus games with Steam and Revive I kept the software, but put the Oculus service from auto to manual. Oculus games need this service and you must start it when playing them. With Oculus tray tool you can even do that auto when ticking the right setting boxes that start and stop Oculus service together with the tray tool.

If anyone is having problem with washout color and not so clear text and gauges, make sure steamvr is video setting is very close to 2160 and the steamvr application setting of dcs is 100%, verify that by showing the resolution the same as video setting. I found this out when i was messing with xplane and thought i will down sample the application to 60%. Did not get addition fps but notice less sharp text and a bit wash out

I think I’ve got another issue in addition to what people have noted here. After about 15 mins of flying around, I hear the windows disconnect sound and I’m not able to use the mouse nor my HOTAS for input in VR.

When I take my headset off though, I’m able to see the mouse moving around and can use it to click options.

 

Any idea what’s going on?

That will be some other app putting dcs in the background. Next time try alt-tabbing back into dcs. If that's the case then you can work out which app is causing you a problem and change its settings.

 

iirc there are some options in wmr and steamvr to prevent things popping up and spoiling your experience.

Hmm I don’t think that’s the case as DCS is still the focal app when I take the headset off.

 

I just had a little flight this morning before work and noticed that the control of the mouse etc comes back once I turn back on one of the Reverb controllers so it seems somewhat related?

 

Is there a way to not need the controls for mouse etc input?

I do hear the controllers turn off but I don't recall losing control of dcs. But you can run dcs without the controllers started so there will be no disconnection.

You can go into the compatibility settings for Oculus Home and set it to "Run as administrator". That will keep it from running automatically, and if you ever want to go back to the CV1 for some of the Oculus-only titles you probably have, all you need to do is manually start Oculus Home and then put on your CV1. Its the simplest solution, without giving up the convenience of still having Oculus Home available when you want it.

Just keep the WMR controllers in the Reverb box and don't use them, and don't forget ALT-ENTER once you get DCS started, so your mouse pointer doesn't accidentally stray outside the DCS window.

Does that still work? I know it's been some time since I had a CV1, but that workaround was certainly disabled at some point by Oculus. Maybe it's OK now, not sure.
