Quest 2 has static lines

SisterKisser

I recently encountered an issue when playing walkabout minigolf through steamvr where it looks like there are small vertical lines popping up for a split second. The normal menus work fine, but when I look specifically at the grass in the game, there is a decent amount of static lines. I also noticed that it is only on the center and right side of my headset. It is not a software/computer issue because this does not occur on my computer screen at all when viewing the mirrored oculus gameplay. I am wondering if anyone else has encountered that or if it is a defect within the headset?

Usually (but not always) indicates that your graphics settings are too high, so data can not keep up in more complex areas.  For SteamVR set your visuals manually (not auto) to 100% and disable super sample filtering.  Try that to begin with.  If it does not help look at your Oculus Debug Tool settings and if using Link, reduce your bitrate to 200mbps.  If Air Link, reduce your rift home dashboard bitrate settings to 80mbps Dynamic (not fixed).  If this does not help go to your oculus desktop pc app device settings and reduce your refresh rate and res. slider.

 

Pretty hard to say more without including your PC specs and which windows version you are using.  Otherwise contact oculus support and include your log files so they can look into this further.  Good luck mate and cheers.

No, its not pc issue. This visual glitches can appear on quest 2 standalone as well, on dashboard for a sample. Easiest way to trigger them is just play video in oculus browser in multiple screens or set very high resolution on link/alvr/vd with 90+ hz. I think its bug with decoder on quest side, but sometimes i can trigger them on standalone with just any app where you can set resolution scale. And on something like 1.37 they just starts appear. 

The glitches appear frequently on dark or green areas, and looks like short lines of artifacts, that appear and dissapear randomly.

The OP asked about this with PCVR and SteamVR so you are kinda off topic imho.  I doubt that there is a Q2 encoder problem but if you think there is, contact oculus support I guess.
