Elite Dangerous on Rift S

I was playing Elite Dangerous on my CV1 prior to getting my Rift S.  I find the game unplayable on the Rift S unfortunately. 

While I'm in the cockpit the screen blinks grey and repositions so i am sitting on the floor of the cockpit next to the chair.  I tried resetting the view but it just blinks me back to the floor.  I stood up in the position it was defaulting to so I could land but the screen still kept blinking grey the whole time I was landing.

I cannot find a setting to make this stop.  Is this a known issue or is there something wrong with my settings?

    I don't have this issue. Do you have this problem only in Elite Dangerous? 

    Is this the SteamVR or Oculus store version?

    You need to start with FX QUALITY = OFF, VOLUMETRIC QUALITY = LOW. Then raise these until you know it won't grey out on you. I think those settings are for the RTX or Photo modes which are too high for VR.

    I have the re-positioning issue with PokerstarsVR. I keep "Falling" out of my chair and sitting under the table.

    Is there a solution for this? It keeps reseting the position and makes the game unplayable ...

    I have the re-positioning issue on Elite Dangerous, but the only way I found to avoid it is to reset Guardian with a new configuration on your chair (So Guardian need to be On).

    I can reset Guardian, but then I have to redo the whole thing for another game, where Im standing, right?
    Who's bug is this, ED or Oculus?

    Yes that's it, also the ''repositioning seated position'' button on steamVR settings never worked for me.

    I have Reset HMD mapped to a button combination on my HOTAS so that I can be 'sitting comfortably'  then adjust the view as needed.  With the latest (1.40) PTC release setting up Guardian can be skipped which is quite useful as I hang the Touch controllers behind my monitor and they would be at the edge of the boundary and bringing up warnings otherwise.
