switching between vr systems

Just curious if anyone here has both htc and oculus, do you all just unplug the htc when you want to use the oculus and vice versa or can both be plugged into the same GPU and the vive will just work when launch a vive game and vice versa or do u have to only keep one plugged in at a time?

@virtuo - I've seen both used at the same time before on a more powerful workstation. It is possible if the Oculus is running an Oculus SDK native app and the Vive is running SteamVR of course; it just takes quite a powerful PC.

I have swapped live on streams before from the rift to the vive so it is possible just unplug and plug in the other unit as long as they have both been set up there shouldnt be an issue

The key here is that you can only have 1 SteamVR instance opened at once.
