A nice review:
I don't see if it's 1.3 compliant. No mention of that specific version of HDMI for the Sprout. It does say that the port is output only and not for video input from gaming machines, etc.
You might try Device Manager and take a look to see if the monitor driver or the display adapter mentions whether it is HDMI 1.3. Looking at the list of drivers I see for the Sprout on the HP downloads page, I don't see any mention of which version of HDMI is supported. You might try checking the swsetup folder on the C:\. Look to see if you can identify the video driver and then see if there is a README. Also, there may be some indication on or around the actual port, itself...

So then to continue. I was told the Sprout Pro was VR compliant. The upgraded I7 processor and 945e video card. I would have thought been enough, but when running steams VR compatibilty test for either Intel HD graphics or Geforce dedicated shows it comes up short.
Not a major concern since I use my Pro for design work, but the VR addition would, I think, add to that experience.
Is it something that HP has been working on?

Same here, so let down. I had specifically talked to the sales associate about VR. To late to turn it back in, but not the main reason why I picked it up. The 1MP front facing camera is also very much a let down. I was thinking about VR enhancment when I purchased the Sprout Pro. Cad design finally in 3d would be awsome and very intuitive.There are also games the should be able to run, but don't.

Same here. Talks were very specific about comptibilty. As well as in gaming. I am finding the Intel graphics seem to bypass the video card even with prefered setting set to it. Games I should be able to play with no problem. I simply can't due to lack of recognition of the card. Though I did buy this specifically for design work. The lack of full card use makes me think that even for that purpose frame rate and rendering must be compromised.
