Not wanting to fully invest in a VIVE or Occulus VR set I chose the HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset. I got in a few Christmases ago with a gaming computer at a pretty good rate. Now well outside the manufacturers warranty I've discovered a design flaw, the stupid cable to connects the computer to the headset. theres an unintended pivot point where the cable goes into the headset that eventually cause the cord to fray. It's pretty well complained about in forums and reddit but HP refuses to sell the replacement and it's being scalped for well over 200 bucks. One end is display port, the other hdmi and usb 3.0. I've yet to find any replacement from any 3rd party.
940814-001 is the hp part number. If the replacement is going to be that high i'll just sell the headset for parts and put that towards the vive but first I wondered if anyone here knew if there was a way to terminate display port and hdmi, essentially repairing the cable, or if anyone knew of a place I could ship the cable to for repairs. HP obviously is done with it so i'm having to go third party.
