Why not do as I suggested to you? You stated:
Well Ive completed guardian setup 4 or 5 times now, click finish, play games.. all good. finish, hang up rift.A bit later put it back on "play area not defined" go through entire setup again, rinse and repeat.
Start the controller setup.
Set floor height as directed.
Skip guardian setup.
This should take care of it.
You can also remove the batteries from the controllers.
This does not solve it and therefore there should be the option to remove controllers completely and prevent the setup from starting. Oculus will sooner or later ask you again to setup the controllers. Regardless that you have done so before. This experience is frustrating and just amateur programming as if the makers of the headset never used it. Once I set it up it must remember the settings and not randomly forget them. What is even worse, the skip button does nothing. Controller setup will re-open immediately after.
