OculusMirror not showing guardian

Honored Guest


I have a Quest 2 and I want to stream what being shown on HMD with Quest Link (I run with normal Oculus app on Windows PC). The OculusMirror does its job whether I am in Oculus Home or any other commercial games in the store. However, when the guardian, either roomscale or stationary, appears on HMD, the guardian never shows on OculusMirror, even I specifically checked show Guardian on System Layer Visibility, I tried many different combinations on OculusMirror as well as turning on/off the developer mode, but it never works. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance if someone can help.

Hi @MetaQuestSupport, please download the video using the link:

As you can see from the video, OculusMirror just directly turns black when outside the guardian. The guardian just does not show up in the OculusMirror while it appears in HMD. I checked the option of showing Guardian in OculusMirror


This happens from the first time I tried OculusMirror. I recently also factory reset my Quest2 and it does not help.


Thanks for reaching out!

Hi @MetaQuestSupport, I already reached the exact support page before and they cannot solve it. The support team at the end refers me to "Oculus for developers", and that's why I am asking here.

One reason I was referred here, probably because I mentioned the link below (and see the two images right before "Changing the Window Size" to learn what suppose to happen). Also, during the email exchanges, it seems they do not have resources to try OculusMirror and I had been asked to try casting with a phone and many other things (like factory reset). I did try and a phone also does not work, although I don't plan to use a phone to cast.


Let me know if I need to provide the ticket number.
