The -ONLY- thing I use my Rift S for is iRacing.
I don't use the controllers, I don't need the guardian..
I don't know. I DO NOT GODDAMN KNOW how many times I have gone through the guardian setup to get it to SHUT UP. only to again get "play area not found" a few sessions later, so I have to drag out the controllers again and do it again.. For whatever reason, and this has been ongoing for months, the setup never "sticks" and I have to redo it over and over again.
The final straw was today in the middle of a race, I lift the headset up for a second while I'm pitting to take a drink, pull it back down PLAY AREA NOT FOUND.. I had to quit the goddamn race because of it.
I looked on reddit and there are multiple threads about this same issue, not being able to disable guardian and or setting it up and it doesen't keep and makes you do it over and over.
There needs to be a way to TURN IT OFF PERMANENTLY!!
From other threads:
"mine loses his guardian all time , need to reset each time, is annoying"
"I just got my Rift S on Sunday and every time i play a game, put the
headset down to go use the restroom and come back, when i pick up and
put on my headset i'm hit with the "play area not found".
"I keep resetting the play area and after a couple of hours it asks for
it again. Sometimes I setup the play area then switch off guardian in
settings and once again it says play area not found."
"I have tried to turn off guardian lot of times but it keeps resetting"
