    Sometimes it does it. Quest is the same, only now and again - Looks like its a feature of inside out tracking.

    I think I've found a work around, clear your guardian settings, completely unplug and reconnect you headset and setup guardian.

    Thank you Sir.
    Was getting sick of re-doing the guardian every day. Was broken since the last update few days ago.

    As you advised: Reset my boundary, unplugged/reconnected headset and re-did boundary. Now after reboot I don't have to constantly setup guardian boundary.

    Thanks LordSir
    Had tried reset and reconnect before, but not directly after eachother.
    Anyway, your method solved the problem.

    I've had this issue since the last update so I'll try your workaround - thanks.

    It’s not a bug, it’s a feature... lol

    How are you guys clearing the guardian settings?

    I did it in oculus home (vr).  Settings, guardian and then there is a reset button.

    Try this: do the guardian setup, in vr go to settings, guardian, reset guardian, take the headset off (don't turn off the software), pull out usb, wait a bit till there is an error message, put the usb back in, wait a bit till error message is gone, redo setup of guardian.
    Please try this and let us know if it worked.

    You can also reproduce the problem.  Opt in on PTC and opt out and the problem returns.  Doing the above steps cure the problem again.

    I have the same or similar problem recently. My guardian settings reset after PC reboot every single time. I tried a lot, including a complete, clean reinstall using Windows safe mode. I'm currently cunsulting this issue with Oculus Support. It really seems to be a Oculus software problem, not a problem with me or my room, especially considering all worked almost perectly before, a few weeks ago.

    Yeah, this method worked for me too. Great thanks! But remember this is only a temporary solution. For example clearing Guardian history and clearing user files (so basically performing a reset) makes the problem return. That would explain why doing a clean reinstall does not help. This needs to be fixed by Oculus. The problem was no existent in the past. I informed the Support already.

    This drove me nuts too.  So this is how I fixed it.

    When I'm done with the Oculus, I take it off, I put my lense cover on, put it in a box just outside the guardian, then I unplug the USB to kill the power to it.

    *If* I plug in the USB while it's outside the guardian, presto, gotta set it up.  If I plug it in, while the cameras can't see because it's too dark, or because it's still in the box, gotta setup the guardian.

    If I take the headset out of the box, turn the lights on, put it inside the guardian, then plug it in, it's fine 99.9% of the time.  

    I went from having to set it up Everytime, to like once a month.

    Hope this helps some of y'all.
