tfix Posted March 29 Share Posted March 29 Pasting something I posted on reddit and contacted support with, but also sharing here to see what other community members have to say: I hope someone can give me a hand with this or just tell me it's normal. I am impressed by how light and comfortable this headset is but am getting a blur that makes me feel like I am looking through lens protection film. I don't see any on the headset, of course. Symptoms: Things look more blue than expected, especially in passthrough. Light spots on dark backgrounds have a halo more than expected from a LCD. Objects are not consistently in focus over the screen - there are splotches of blur. The lens has a bit of a blue reflection when light is shone in but this seems normal in HTC's teardown video. Troubleshooting: Cleaning with a lint-free cloth Testing both native and streaming apps Inspecting it to see if I can find a lens protector Watching unboxing and teardown videos to see if anyone ever had one and removed it. Adjusting the fit (vertical and horizontal) and the diopter to make sure I have the optimal placement. I downloaded and installed the ROV test FOV & Resolution room from Steam and used it to try to read text on the wall. When my head scans up and down a paragraph of text, I can visually see the text pinch and warp (subtle, but it's there) in certain areas of my field of view. The distortions stick with my head movement, not with what is on the screen. Also the foveated rendering is VERY aggressive on this, and text outside a smallish cone (maybe 60 degrees?) of the center of my FOV is unreadable. With a USB connection or 5GHz WiFi connection to an RTX 3080, I thought perhaps I could turn that down but I don't see any settings for it. It's fine with an eye tracking headset, but fixed foveated rendering that aggressive is very distracting. I don't have a way to test to see if the visible warping over blocks of text is as strong in native apps. I'll look for a way today. Any advice is welcomed.
