Great post and Video. Love the Surface Hub, only drawback is still the price...

This is great! Love seeing it in action. 

First time post, so hopefully in the right place..  We've just bought a 55" SurfaceHub, and it looks and works great but we're experiencing one big problem.  When inviting the SurfaceHub to a meeting (resource booking) or Skype meeting, it's shown in the

Does it show in the Surfaces own calendar? As in if you open the calendar from your own outlook is your meeting showing in there?

Hi everyone, I need to know if everyone is having the same behavior than us when opening Office documents.

 

We are using the Surface Hub for meetings and we need to access some documents. We do not have Windows 10 available for now and some of our manageme

Same behavior here.

I have heard that it would be fixed in an update march/april.

so you only need to sign in one time.

Hi Mathieu, we are also experiencing this behaviour in the same scenario as yours, have you had any feedback from MS?

I can confirm I'm seeing the same behaviour. Early adopter here with 9 hubs on site.

Can you clarify - is the experience you're having when opening files on the Surface Hub itself, or on local computers?

Last week I configured a surface hub (successfully joined to domain, on-prem mbx and SfB w/EV).  I used the ICD (Imaging and Config Designer) to push additional settings to the device after OOBE.  One of the settings is the workspace and primary key for O

This is probably as much an Office 365 question as a surface hub question, but I'll start here: 

 

We have surface hubs set up using room accounts in Office 365, and they currently have an E1 license assigned.  If I want to enable people to dial in to confe

The challenge with the Surface Hub is that it does not actually create it's own meetings. You need to invite its account to the meeting.
However if the Skype for Business ... Read More

Another issue we've found here...

 

We have general federation to the external Skype world setup - I can Skype from my desktop to a "home" Skype user with no problem.

 

From the surface if I start an adhoc meeting and try to call an external user it fails

Do you have the Surface Hub account enabled for Federation? afaik by Default it is not :)

Running win 8.1 devices is anyone else experiencing drop out of the wireless presenting option via Miracast?

I suspect it's Windows related rather than the device.

Drop out typically occurs after 5/10 minutes and requires reconnecting.

I have another new SH ( we are in a Hybrid deployment my Hubs are 365 / Azure resources)  and I want to "attach" it to a legacy (on prem only resource) existing room so that the room booking automates the SH booking as well.
