    TPCast Connectivity Issues

    I don't expect to see a lot of traffic on this thread, as the number of us that have TPCast units is likely pretty small, but I'm wondering if anyone else has been experiencing connectivity issues with their TPCast/Vive or TPCast/Rift combinations?

    Virtual Reality Headset Shipments Top 1 Million for the First Time

    According to Canalys, VR headset shipments hit 1 million units in the last quarter. This is the first time 1 million units have ever shipped in a quarter. That's a lot of headsets and It seems to me that the reason more units are selling is because prices are starting to drop to reasonable...

    Oculus+touch for $399 with $50 oculus store credit.

    Just a PSA. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=26-910-005 If you have a larger play area, this would allow a 3 camera Rift setup for $409, which is a great deal (imo). That or a couple of games to go with the free ones it comes with if you have a smaller area (~12'x12').

    Who Will Buy Windows VR too?

    Current Rift / Vive owners, will you pick up a Windows VR unit too? Yea or nay and why? I'm thinking about grabbing one of the higher resolution Windows VR units. The extra pixels are supposed to be a solid visual upgrade over Rift / Vive. I plan to wait for Steam VR support first though.

    Digital signal, 1s and 0s, only if defective, etc. Now that that's out of the way, I did my own little blind test where I kept the HMD on and my wife would randomly connect either the default HDMI or the adapter.
