Cosmos Elite mirroring to TV

Recommended Posts

Day one with the elite was a win!

Family and I had a blast with saber, but how much better would it be for those not playing to watch on the big screen!

Advice on the best way to mirror/project Vive view & sound to the TV?

Laptop: GU502LW

Sound: HEOS through Marantz receiver.

TV:  LG C8PUA 4K HDR Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ®

@CaseRain392.It looks like your laptop has HDMI so you should just be able to connect the laptop to the TV via HDMI. You can use windows projector settings (Windows Key + P) to select which output mode. When using a laptop, I'd recommend setting to "second screen only" to disable the Laptop's monitor to save horsepower for VR.

Audio mirroring can be really tricky and will vary from device to device. Just keep in mind that you usually have to get into both SteamVR's audio settings and Window's settings. You can access the other audio devices easily in more recent versions of windows by clicking on the little up carrot in the top right corner - sometimes you need to get in there and select your external device to be able to adjust that device's audio level

Oh, forgot to add in that not all games show a 2D output on your monitor. When that happens you can use SteamVR -> DisplayVRView to launch the "mirror" which shows what the HMD sees. It has a bunch of settings & is overall one of the most helpful tools within SteamVR.
