  1. @VRRehab I'd like to help you solve this issue with casting. I'll give general guidance first and then have some specific questions for you below: You might have already seen this, but please take another look at this guide for projecting the Focus Plus to an external device via Miracast. It is very important to note that VIVE Focus Plus only supports projecting to a 5GHz band Miracast device. To find out if your Miracast device supports the 5GHz band, look up your Miracast device's model on the manufacturer’s website or check its user guide. In good news, since you've had the casting working before, then it should work again. Some questions: 1.) Do you see a popup on your external monitor asking for permission for the Focus or Focus Plus to connect? See - ConnectFocustoProjectPopup.jpg 2.) What is the behavior that you see on the external monitor after you click Connect (to external device) in the Focus Plus? Do you see anything on the external monitor such as a blue screen that says Focus is About to Project (see image)? 3.) What is the brand and model name of the dongle or the wireless card of the target device (external monitor)?
  2. It bears repeating that the Focus and Focus Plus only work with the Miracast standard. I've successfully had these devices streaming to several Window 8.1 and Windows 10 computers and LG smart tvs. Here is a guide to projecting the Focus Plus to an external device via Miracast. Please note, that in recent ROM updates, you are no longer able to project the Focus Settings menu, so be sure to navigate to the Viveport Home screen or an app to test that Miracast is casting to your target device. In my past experience, I've noticed that connecting to Windows 8.1 and 10 was very easy. However, to connect with the tvs I'd have to turn the Focus wifi off/on a couple times before a connection was firmly established. @Tobias
  3. @pascalvanbeek, @Tony PH Lin It is because the HMDs that are 1.69.1405.6 ROMs are from China and the others which are 1.93.1400.2 are global ROMs. The 1.69.1405.6 are not able to update to the global ROM.
  4. 1. The inside out tracking of the Focus relies on the cameras to sense edges and distinct points in the environment. A mono-colored wall or a non-textured environment does not make for good tracking conditions. The best tracking will come from an environment that has plenty of distinct points to track against on the floor, ground, and ceiling. 2. Ensure that the environment has adequate lighting (not too dim or direct sunlight). 3. The sweet “focus” spot of the Focus is in the center of the lens. It is recommended to keep the Focus adjustment dial tight (yet comfortable) on your head in order to keep the center of the lens lined up with your eyes. Looking a few tens of degrees beyond the center may start to increase the effect of “swimming”. 4. Although not recommended, the Focus can track outdoors as long as the environment has plenty of distinctive textures. Make sure not to expose the cameras and lenses to direct sunlight. You can turn off the Virtual Safety Wall (at your own risk), but it is recommended to leave the Virtual Safety Wall (2x2m) on. Always make sure that someone is watching out for you while you are in VR.
  5. @Elio961 Check out this link for more information about Android Debug Bridge and sideloading apps to your Focus device - https://forum.vive.com/forums/topic/2310-sideload-focus-content-and-android-debug-bridge-quick-tips/
  6. @paul, @Fangh, @VRC currently, VibrantNebula's suggestion of covering the IR proximity sensor with a piece of tape is the solution. @Tony PH Lin and I will check with the team to see if there are any software solutions we may be able to offer.
  7. @Tobias My team reports that the following devices and dongles support Miracast and allow the Focus and Focus Plus to project to an external screen: - Netgear Push2TV - Netgear PTV3000 - ScreenBeam Mini2 - Microsoft wireless display adapter V2.
  8. @Tobias As mentioned above, the Focus and Focus Plus only work with the Miracast standard. I've successfully had these devices streaming to several Window 8.1 computers and LG smart tvs. I have not tested with Samsung tv, but if it supports Miracast, then it should work. I have reached out to my engineering team to ask about specific dongles and will get back to you soon. Here is a guide to projecting the Focus Plus to an external device via Miracast . In my past experience, I've noticed that connecting to Windows 8.1 was very easy. However, to connect with the tvs I'd have to turn the Focus wifi off/on a couple times before a connection was firmly established.
  9. @atonalfreerider We're looking into this issue and will get back to you soon.
  10. @Fangh, @FrancescoFontana The release notes are available inline of my forum post that announced the Wave SDK 3.1.1. Although the SDK has been tested, we are maintaining it as beta for about one month, just in case, any updates are necessary. The documentation will be updated online early next week. However, you can find the all of the 3.1.1 documentation in the SDK download package.
  11. @razoredge you can upgrade your app from Wave SDK 2.0.37 to 3.0.2. I'd recommend waiting for 3.1.1 which should be coming out this weekend. Additionally, read the Release Notes for the Wave SDKs (2.1.0 and 2.1.8) in between the latest release- https://hub.vive.com/storage/docs/en-us/ReleaseNote.html#release-3-0-2
  12. In order to build for the Focus Plus you will need to integrate your apps with the Wave SDK. For more information about Focus and Wave development check out our Vive Developer Resources Site. You can find both the Wave SDK and Documentation linked from this Resource page. If you’re a Unity Developer, then Getting Started with Unity and Wave SDK will be very helpful. If you’re looking for community help, be sure to visit the Wave SDK Forum to find answers to your questions or to ask new ones you may have. Read the Vive Focus Plus User Guide to get acquainted with it. Make sure to update your HMD to the latest ROM (currently version 2.04.623.x). You can update the device by tapping on the controller’s Vive button and then > Settings > System Update (Note: You must be connected via wifi in order to receive system updates). Once you’re ready to publish your app on Viveport, visit the Viveport Developer Console. If you need inspiration, feel free to find some fun right away and get to know some of the Wave experiences. Visit the Viveport M store in the HMD and peruse the titles with the 6+6dof label. This label indicates that the experience is compatible with the 6dof headset and the 6dof controllers. Here are some great suggestions: Browse the Virtual Web with Firefox Reality. Download Sureshot: RPO Edition. In this Ready Player One app you can freely move and shoot in full room scale glory! Check out Skyworld Kingdom Brawl, which is Vive Studios’ tactical card-battler, Clash Royale-inspired collaboration with Vertigo Games. Or try Kingdom of Blades for some sword swinging, shield bashing action! If you’re looking to purchase a Focus Plus, they are available at this link https://enterprise.vive.com/us/focus-plus/. For bulk orders, please reach out to your Vive contact for more information. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to experiencing what you create. See you in VR, Justin and the Vive Team
  13. can you help Luigi here? We need to investigate why he isn't seeing the latest Wave SDK.
  14. , Can you try a game called Kingdom of Blades? That game is specifically built to use the Focus Plus controllers. You will notice the blue ribbon with 6+6dof. A-10VR also says it supports 6+6, so I will review this. However, Very Star VR only supports a 3dof controller scheme. Unfortunately, there is not a way to roll back to the previous firmware version.
