This issue has been constant since the day I bought my headset. I start my computer up and its a great mystery on how long it will take the headset to work if I decide to use it. I have contacted support before, but all they seem to offer is a band-aid to stop the bleeding instead of solving the root issue. The "fix" is often an uninstall/reinstall of the hardware, as well as changing setting for USB ports, etc.
The issue that I have is that something (my computer, the oculus software, or something else) doesn't seem to recognize that my headset is plugged in. I can sometimes pick up the headset and put it on and it fires right up. Other times, it takes numerous restarts of the oculus software, unpluggin and plugging in headset and restarting software. Repeat until it work. The thing is, there is no surefire method to get it to work every time. So what I would like to know is what is causing this.
Should I keep the headset unplugged from the PC until I want to use it?
Please offer any help or advice and I will give it ago. So far, the experience with the headset has been awfu.
