Oculus Rift S and 3m displayport extension

Hello!

I found a topic on here describing the 2m displayport extension you sell as being tested with a valve index and oculus. Can the same be said about the 3m displayport extension you carry? Will it work with a rift s?

This one:

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

The CAC-1023 has been tested and works perfectly.

Thank you very much for the swift testing of the Rift S, I appreciate it a lot!

Hi arebokert.

To be more specific it was tested with an HP reverb virtual reality headset. since the specs for this model are higher than the required standards of the Rift-s it can be said that the CAC-1023 will work on the Rifs-s as well.

Hmm, the issue I see is that the reverbs default cable is 3.5m while the Rift S cable is 5m.

 

The reason I was having doubts if the 3m extension would work is that the default cable is 5m already, and extending it by 3m to a total of 8m could result in problems. Extending the reverbs cable by 3m means less length (total 6.5m) than the Rift S would have with even a 2m extension (total 7m).

 

Is there any possibility you could test it with a Rift S?

Hi arebokert,

at the moment this is not possible, however you are free to try and share your findings. 🙂

That’s unfortunate as the only site that sells this cable where I live has a no-returns policy if you break the packaging.

 

I do however really need an extension so I guess I’ll take a leap of faith here and buy it. I’ll report back.

After a few hours of testing I can say that the 3m extension cable does not work. The screen of the Oculus Rift S remains black. The computer sometimes finds the headset and sometimes doesn’t, but at all times the headset screen remains black. One or two times I managed to get some signal in the headset but it had a lot of issues including tracking not working properly and scattered white dots blinking around making the headset unusable.

Very unfortunate as I now have a cable I can’t use for anything and can’t be returned.

After testing I can safely say that the 3m extension does not work, at all, with the Oculus Rift S. See my other reply for details.

Hi arebokert,

May i ask what computer setup you use, it can be that the USB-A is not enough to deliver enough power to the Oculus in that case the cable is perfectly fine but it will be a power issue.

My computer has the following components:

 

Asus ROG Strix X570-F

G.Skill 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3200MHz CL14 Trident

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Dual OC

EVGA Supernova G3 750W

 

I did not use a USB extension. I bought a USB extension but did not use it because the displayport cable did not work without a USB extension so I figured it wouldn’t work any better with one. I did try with the extension a few times though and got the same result.

 

I do not believe it is an issue with the USB ports but rather the cable simply making the displayport total too long at 8 meters. The Rift S seems to not like too long displayport cables.

Just an update: I bought an active display port repeater. Using the repeater in conjunction with the extension cable, even together with another 3m cable, works.

So if you want to extend display port for your Rift S, use a repeater.

I got this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D949F59/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A1AMUYYA3CT6HJ&psc=1
