Vive Pro setup not detecting DisplayPort connection


Recommended Posts

Purchased new laptop and new Vive Pro and cannot get the display port connection recognized during setup.


Laptop is an MSI GS73VR which has both a MiniDisplay 1.2 port and a Thunderbolt 3 port. 

I have a direct cable connection from the MiniDisplay 1.2 port to the Vive link box, no adapters.


No matter how i disconnect, reconnect, etc it does not detect the display port connection.


Is this cable supported? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-1-6-thunderbolt-cable-white/7944078.p?skuId=7944078

Hi , 

Surprisingly enough, Apple branded thunderbolt cables are actually not DisplayPort 1.2+ compatible and thus are incompatible with the Pro despite sharing the same mDP style headers. 


We're semi-officially recommending the 3 foot version of this cable as it's affordable and we've yet to have a report of it not working.
