so everytime I have play VRCHAT and pavlov my tracking will break for a second then be fine but when it breaks I lose audio and the ability to talk in game and the only way I have been able to fix this is by restarting steamVr and the Oculus app. the app also recommends that I update my usb drivers which I have done but nothing change I have unplugged reinstalled restarted but nothing works also I have done a compatibility check and it said my computer is able to run the rift s it even said my usb was fine but the app disagrees is there anything else I can do to fix this problem

    This is exactly my same issue, I have tried updating drivers, disabling other audio devices, using my own headphones w the 3.5 mm jack. nothing helps, basically every game eventually the tracking sticks so the entire game scene moves with my head movement for a second, then when tracking resumes I have lost audio. Restarting everything is only way to regain sound.

    I'm having similar problems ever since I got my Rift S in early June. I have had a CV1 for years without any problems even when using extensions. 

    After some time, my Rift S light will turn orange and the headset will not show anything, or will show a grid without any tracking (follows wherever you look). Other times, I will just suddenly lose all audio as well as microphone functionality until I unplug the Rift S USB and plug it back in. I've been emailing with support for over a month without any solutions or real help.

    I've got the exact same issue, for me I will constantly go into desktop mode window's settings->sound devices->and disable then re-enable rift s headphones. This temporarily fixes it for 5 ish min if your mid [somthing important].
