Oculus home = Black Screen

Everything was working fine until Microsoft did an update. Now the Oculus home (in VR) is a black screen. I can hear the fireplace in the background, but no visuals. I tired re-installing Oculus from the ground up, but can only get to the part of the setup that says "continue in your headset". Again, I can hear it, but not see anything. Strangely, SteamVR still works. also.... before I tried to reinstall, I could still use "some" of the apps by launching them from my desktop. (Lone Echo)
