UPDATE: It’s the cable! Using my 5K’s cable resolved the issue. Seems like cable quality is another new factor to consider.
I’ve just received my loaner 8K today and after the usual game of service restarts, folder deletion to get it tracking, I noticed a serious problem with the panels:
There is random pixel noise all over the screen, with the screen flashing every couple of seconds. I tried the following without success:
- using another Displayport
- using another USB port
- flashing older firmware (Pitool keeps updating it automatically)
- rebooting the HMD
- rebooting the PC
- pushing in the cable
The headset is tracking (I can see the mirror view fine), and appears to be otherwise working. I’m using the same power adaptor as my 5K+, so that’s not the problem.
It looks very similar to this issue:
I also created the following support ticket:
EDIT: Here’s a screenshot from the video showing the flash:
