6800XT and Valve index

Just installed the 6800XT and hit a snag. After connecting the headset it switches the index to my primary display, once connected I only have access to the task bar(on my monitor) but I cannot actually open anything because it all goes to the index (which wont work as a display). I tried turning direct display mode on and off and switching displayports on the gpu with no luck. From what I am reading the display port has the higher priority on the gpu over the hdmi (my monitor), is there a way of changing this?

6900 xt here, having similar issues with Index/SteamVR. Very frustrating. It sometimes works but most of the time it doesnt.

Re: 6800XT and Valve index

Have the same issue. But even worse is that as soon as I start a game from Steam VR it drops to 2FPS (average!). Can't play a single game. Weird thing is that sometimes it works, but I have not found what causes it. Tried reinstalling drivers (with UDD), reinstalling Steam VR. Nothing worked. Was excited to switch to team red after 10 years of Nvidia but this sucks!
