  • Upgrade from CV1 to Rift S gave me very good improvements and much better visuals than I had anticipated. I do not think the Sennheiser headphone upgrade shown above is good value relative to the price of Rift S. Also, perhaps I am in the minority, …
  • I bought these https://www.minidisc.com.au/koss-ksc75-titanium  $39 delivered and they are absolutely brilliant.  You can just twist and cut the metal prongs that go around your ear and make them like a narrow hook to go over the halo of the Rift S.…
  • Yeah that is overkill for sure and way too expensive for that system.  You must be able to find something that works equally well for around 20 bucks tops.  My i7-6700K sits on an Asus mobo and the only port which works to power my Rift S is the usb…
  • I have managed to stay on 1.42 which works no problems on my system.  It is annoying though because everyday when I boot up the PC it downloads the 1.41 "update" again each time and I have to hit the button to Snooze 4 hours to prevent it …
  • Why is there no information from Oculus about this ?
  • I was on 1.42 ( never on PTC ever ) and just now downloaded 1.41 then it asked me to update and I hit the Snooze 4 hours button instead.  Don't know if I can just keep doing that or not  !?
  • Currently on 1.42 and rollback downloading 1.41 as we speak .... and I have never been on the PTC at all.   It finished downloading and asked me to update and I hit the Snooze 4 hours button.  Can I just keep hitting that and refusing the downgrade…
  • Great advice,  have bookmarked this in case I ever need to do the same, cheers mate :smile:
  • Good luck,  bookmarked to 2030'ish  
  • LoL :smiley:  I would have sworn it was 2 lights Ha !  Thanks kojack I guess it is nothing unusual then and maybe just coincidence that changing the Light frequency to 60Hz appeared to fixi it.
  • The resolution on Rift S actually caught me completely by surprise 😲   I never expected it would look so good,  great clarity and smoothness with negligible screen door effect.   However, as mike indicated, every person has different expectations a…
  • Mine is fixed and I cannot confirm absolutely but seems that by selecting the Audio as Windows default and playing some music then changing it back to Rift S and rebooting has sorted it out. 
  • I agree Mradr and having choice is key going forward. I think with Rift S oculus purely wanted to meet a price point and they underestimated the reaction of lowering refresh rate and even more the fact users did not want to sacrifice the mechanical …
  • At the time I bought my 72hz Dk2 in 2014 I had a 120hz Asus screen which was really nice and great for racing, so I thought the drop to 72hz would be really jarring and quite noticeable. Well it wasn't and felt very smooth, so maybe I just adapted q…
  • I looked long and hard at the Quest to replace my CV1 couple weeks ago and it was fairly easy decision that Quest was not for me and imho tethered or not the gameplay would not be of the same quality for my purpose. So I bought the RiftS for aussie …
  • Seriously best advice is to stop trying and immediately cancel & refund the Oculus version.  The steam VR version now has the Oculus SDK added since last week and works great.  Also you can buy the season passes for Steam version which you canno…
  • I found those enhancements made minimal difference, volume still too low. I think my Rift S might have some other problem with the speakers as they crackle and volumes splutter when playing music.
  • This is 3rd day of my new Rift S and yesterday it sounded ok but today for some reason the volume seems much softer and I cannot make it go higher.  Surely there is some sort of solution to boost the volume of the inbuilt speakers ?  I actually like…
  • This also just started happening with mine after 2 days brand new.  Audio is working fine so makes no sense. More annoying is having to setup my play area multiple times.  Why does the system not save and remember it is already setup !!??  This s…
  • I just got my Rift S 2 days ago and had similar problem. Rift works then after awhile told me no displayport connection. Tried all usb 3.0 ports and it works only if I keep shuffling between them all. However, touch wood,  I may have solved it by u…
  • It is already disabled but thanks for suggesting.  If I reboot the pc it remains disconnected. Only way to get it recognised is to keep shuffling back and forth between few usb 3.0 ports I have then it wotks until next time my pc is turned off &…
  • So it arrived and when it works it looks fantastic, much better than I expected.  However I am having trouble with it staying connected as after every reboot or if left alone for awhile I get a message that there is no displayport connection and Ocu…
  • Thanks I am from the VHS era too...  When I upgraded from DK2 to CV1 it was impressive even though I was always happy with the DK2.  I am hopeful the jump to the Rift S is a bigger leap than from DK2 as there are so many good things said about the…
  • Thanks DnD good info re the light and it sounds like I will have enough with couple small LED night lights I already have. I will definitely remove the covers to treat them with Scotchguard and let that fully dry so lenses should be good.  Looking …
  • Thanks for all your answers guys, very much appreciated and I will checkout that infrared illuminator thanks ShocksVR.   Scotchguard has been around for a very long time and I have used it on clothing as well as furniture.  Never heard of anyone be…
  • I think in its current form it is a fad and only can succeed if there is a massive improve in visual quality - however I can never imagine mainstream gaming being dominated by VR because the issue of motion sickness probably will never be totally ov…
  • The Steam version runs very poorly on an Oculus HMD as it only has the OpenVR api yet when VR was announced most of us thought that like every other sim racing title the Oculus SDK would also be included with the Steam version. The original Dirt R…
  • @cybereality  Attached my logs if you can please take a look and see what is going on,  thanks. I did the whole process again with latest versions of DDU and Nvidia GPU Driver 416.34 and installed the Intel integrated Graphics drivers for my i7-670…
  • I have definitely followed the steps mentioned but I do not have Intel graphics drivers installed as I never used them. I noticed after I ran ddu and rebooted that before installing the Nvidia drivers I ran the Oculus app and the Notification about…
  • Yes I always use DDU first and I tried the Nvidia 399 driver and latest 416 driver. The light stays amber orange then goes white after a game loads but screen remains black. Notifications in Oculus software says there is a problem and suggests rest…
