Meta Quest Remote Desktop stuck on Loading screen after installation

Level 2


I have a Quest 2 and a Mac Pro mid-2011 with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7, and I have installed the Meta Quest Remote Desktop app, and it's stuck on loading screen after logging into my Meta account.

It's been like this for a while now, so I'm sure it's just stuck.



When I connect on my Quest 2, it doesn't appear as if there's a computer available either.


Can anyone advise?

Hey guys,


Do I absolutely need the Link cable, or can I connect wirelessly? 


'Cause I actually don't have the cable, and didn't know it was needed!
