Hey everyone,

I am using this adapter :

But it looks like it doesn't work with the Oculus Rift.
Does someone knows why ? Does it has any wrong specs ?
I can't use my oculus cause of that T-T

Thanks. 😃

Weird thing with Cables and extensions with VR headsets two can be indetical specs but only one pf them will work.
I have tried high end cables and low end cables and for some reason I find that the cheap cable matters work better.
Its rather odd.
WAAAGH!

Get the latest model adapters, that can support 4K 60Hz. That model you linked to is a 1080P 60Hz adapter (Rift runs at 2160 x 1200 at 90Hz so that is too much bandwidth for the one your got).

Ok so If I order this cable, does it will work with this kind of port : 



Is there something I should take care about DP or DP++ ? cause mine looks like it's just DP.

What country are you in? I can try to find a cable. However, keep in mind, not every cable will work, so it can be sort of a gamble unless someone has tested that exact cable.

It may. You can also check this one, which may also work.
