So as of this afternoon, I was tooling around with X-plane, and thought it was time I fired up the Pimax. I powered it on, and enabled VR in X-plane. After a few short flashes on the screen, I put the HMD on, and saw X-plane in VR for the first time. Frame-rate was a bit slow, but it looked fantastic. I toggled VR back off, and closed down X plane.
I loaded PiPlay, and thought I would enable the 1920X1080 option in PiPlay. As soon as I clicked the checkbox, the HMD locked up, as well as my computer.
This is odd because the Pimax has been working flawlessly. I powered the HMD off, and forced a restart on teh computer. Fired everything back up, and it seemed fine. I powered the HMD on, and lock up.
I decided before I did too much, I would try the pimax on another computer. I connected it to my surface book 2, and powered it on. I noticed right away, the display would power on, the surface display would flash, so I could tell it saw the pimax, and as just before it was all happy, the HMD started to cycle.
What might cause the Pimax to get stuck on a power cycling mode? I thought I might flash bios on the Pimax, but I cant because it continues to power cycle itself as soon as it is powered on.
Its hard to explain, but my questions is:
Is there a way to hard re-set the Pimax 4k HMD? Or does anyone know why seemingly changing the HMD to force 1920 x 1080 in PiPlay would cause this ossolating or cycling behavior?
I would love to figure this out, but I have not connected the HMD to 3 different computers, and I get the same power on, power off, cycling on the HMD now.
Help or suggestions?
Hateful because it has worked without a hitch for well over a year now, and now, it is basically useless.
