Virtual Desktop cannot work via cable like Oculus Link. The beauty of that is it's completely wireless. You just have to have a really good wifi connection.

It's obvious my wifi is not good enough, the Telus Wifi Hub is directly upstairs (PC in the basement) as well as an old Apple Router in the Basement Kitchen (8-10m away). I am not positive if the Apple router is using 5Ghz wifi, I ended up ordering the Telus Wifi Boosters to see if that will help. PC is also connected to wifi. Anyone know of any better solutions? No other spots to add an access point/router, the closest would be where the Apple router is at the moment. If all else fails, I'll probably use the link cable.
It's best to wire everything together. Powerline ethernet adapters are an option, just search for g.hn wave 2. (ie https://www.amazon.ca/Powerline-Pass-Th ... B07ZHPY8WN ). Orbi RBK50 is the highest performance wireless mesh, but as wish all meshes, you need minimal space between the nodes, like 1 room 2 rooms max. Finally, for high performance video streaming, you want your Quest 2 in the same room as a wireless access point that is wired to the router.

Did you buy registered with facebook or as a guest? I'd love to get that coupon, my headset is scheduled for wednesday delivery... Coupon should be a normal freebie for pre-orders...

But it doesn't work :facepalm:
Mine works. Phew!

Just a note that if you use the code and then refund the game, they don't give you the money from the code back on your account. Use it wisely!

Maybe because I checked out as a guest when I bought my Quest..?

Anyway I'll contact the support.

Got an email today from Oculus giving me a $30 credit for apps/games for their delay in sending out the headset. I ordered the Quest2 from Oculus directly. If you've ordered your Quest2 through Oculus.com, check your email!

/could we just all say that Quest 1 is BETTER than Quest 2 in almost every way except the chipset and the resolution?

I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY Oculus headsets for adult movie /p0rn watching...

Facebook/Oculus updated their data collection and privacy policy on October 11, 2020, and they are not collecting your PHYSICAL FEATURES and you ENVIRONMENT ROOM or otherwise with the Quest. And Quest 2’s Cameras...

Also, they monitor the content you consume on your Quests. If you exhibit any “sexually inappropriate” behaviors when using VR or bullying in online VR, you will be PERMA BANNED and lose the privilege to use your Oculus headsets...

Check Oculus’ policy site for more details..


Aside from that, the improved clarity and less Screen Door Effect does improve video watching a lot. I loaded an 8K VR180 video I’ve recorded when I had a trip to Italy earlier in the year (pre-COVID), it looked great!!! The XR2 chipset handled 8K 90fps videos without any hitching

Though, I don’t know if its any good for p0rn thou as those kind of movies, but the clarity probably is good for it. Whether you want to watch it is entirely up to you, and as stated, you could be “banned” for consuming such content I’m guessing

Also 90Hz refresh, wifi 6, slightly more comfortable / longer battery controllers, better USB port placement, slightly better speakers, smaller.

Quest 1 has deeper blacks, better default strap, dual headphone ports, fine IPD adjustment, 10ft Link compatible cable included.

Yes, I agree with the list. Though, the speakers are pretty much marginal improvement, and that is not a driver upgrade, but just a close to your ear position. Controller ergonomics are a bit of a mixed bag.. I still like my CV1 touch controllers the most, and CV1 controllers had the best build quality imo, thou Quest 2 controller build quality is close.

PSA: if you ordered just a VRCover from the Oculus store, you might want to check your email as well.

I ordered just a VRCover from the Oculus store and it arrived yesterday, but I got the email today for the $30 store credit anyways.
