Oculus Controller mess

Oculus Remote/Oculus Touch/Oculus Touch (as gamepad)/Gamepad (I have XBOne wireless): You need to sort out the controller mess please!

1. Games in store have wrong/missing info on 'supported controllers'.
2. Games working before with gamepad have trouble now after some Oculus Touch update.
3. Oculus Touch (as gamepad) not working (gamepad must be turned off at the start of game for it to work), also wrong mapping for input in some games (Knee Deep).
4. Gamepad issues with gamepad timing out and demanding reconnect despite regular input at intervals that should prevent gamepad to time out - need to press Oculus menu button on right touch controller to go to menu, then reconnect gamepad then go back to game.
5. Gamepad connects briefly then disconnects again, might happen after gamepad timeout in a game (for example Fly To Kuma, or Esper: The Collection).
6. OH must sometimes be restarted to allow any ingame inputs (gamepad/touch), despite both controllers working in Home.

Am I the only one affected by this? Why isn't it a high priority issue? For me it's super important...

    Why isn't it a high priority issue?
    Because over ~90% CV1 users play with Touch controllers.

    Which is a bad reason for the poor support, but (probably) the right answer to your question.

    The gamepad connecting and disconnecting is an issue with Windows as far as I remember. And as @Cyril has said the other issues that you've mentioned are probably a low priority because most people use Touch controllers.

    They recently updated steamvr with a fix for Swedish users https://steamcommunity.com/games/250820/announcements/detail/1697188096867811577

    This may be what finally fixed 3-6 above for me, also the reason not every one was affected.
