Hello Oculus Rifters,
So for 5 straight days I have been troubleshooting the Firmware Sensor Error CV1 problem with everything I could find online to fix the solution but nothing worked. Im using the ASUS G20cb computer running Windows 10 64bit. I click the oculus firmware update and it begins the update, during that time I hear the Windows sound of a USB port being plugged in and unplugged twice. After I hear that sound, it shows that there was a sensor error and could not update firmware. Windows shows that the sensor is connected, up to date and working properly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled oculus and all drivers, plugged into different USB 3 ports, reinstalled all oculus drivers, and updated all ASUS USB, BIOS, ect. drivers as well. Sensor worked fine until oculus firmware Sensor update was requested.
Since the oculus was working before the Windows Anniversary update, I thought a Factory reset of the ASUS G20cb would fix it (SINCE IT WAS AN OCULUS READY PC), which rolls back before the windows anniversary and deletes all files and programs that were on the computer. Believe me, this was my last resort of fixing it because I didnt want to lose everything I had on the computer. Turns out after the factory reset and loading the oculus program back on the computer, it still comes up with a SENSOR FIRMWARE ERROR!
I did a SECOND factory reset and this time ran all the windows Anniversary updates before I installed the oculus program, but I am still getting the same Oculus Sensor error. My computer says all of my USB 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1 drives are working properly, so it is nothing wrong on my end of the computer.
The ASUS 3.0 USB shows it is plugged in and working correctly, and in the Oculus Device Setting it shows connected, but I get a notification that pops up in the bottom right of my screen that says cannot find sensor please connect.
****When I look at the Sensor device in Oculus setting it shows the error 178/unknown (Update Required to 178/e9c7e04064ed1bd7a089e738b638b4c8467aa843-DIRTY)
Do I just need a new Oculus Sensor!!??
Please, any insight on this problem would help me out! Thank You!
