GAmes are freezing while htc vive connected to hdmi and tv connected t...

Hi,

 

I use the htc vive with gtx 1060. 

The vive is connected to the hdmi and works fine if no display port is used.

If I connect the tv to one of the display ports heavy games start to freeze.

How can I connect the TV without having this problem?

 

Thanks

@playboxgamingcenter - 

Odd.... so my Vive is hooked into my GTX980 via HDMI - and my monitor runs off of DP. I think there are a few things you should check - 

1. Drivers - all up to date?
2. Firmware on Vive device all up to date?

3. Resolution you are trying to push to the TV.

     - If you have your Vive running and you are also trying to display your desktop on your TV at a 4k resolution, you may have some issues. Try dropping it down?

 

 

You say only when playing "heavy" games - if you check the load of your machine whilst playing those, where is it being hammered?

@bulloko

Great advice.

@playboxgamingcenter

I recommend following bulloko's steps for starters. I also want to clarify: Are you only experiencing this during certain games, but not all games?

 

Thank you,
