@420inPortland Impossible to address your current Rift S problem(s) in a user forum (esp without pc details). I have never had this happen with Rift (cv1 or S). Could be a problem with your Cable or maybe caused by a win10 and/or AMD (if you use AMD) and/or Nvidia update. Who knows?
The best thing to do imho (besides a little more Google research) is to contact Oculus Support and start a ticket. Oculus has discontinued production of the Rift S, but support/warranty is still available. Good luck mate and cheer up!
Yeah, I've already had an RMA replacement. There is no doubt that it is an issue with their software. BTW, the signature here used to show my specs but whoever does their web design took notes from their driver devs when they updated the text on here so it is cut off now. I have spent 2 mo troubleshooting and getting an RMA, and the issue persists. These forums are riddled with people having these issues and as yet there is no end in sight, even on Ver 28 Beta. I hope they DO fix it for us, but I have my doubts at this time.
@artscout Hold your horses mate. Rome was not built in a day! In the meantime, if you have not already done so, I think it's worth trying out wireless PCVR with Virtual Desktop. This should give you comparable results with Air Link and, more importantly, will let you see if your current PC and router/wifi setup is suitable for wireless PCVR. Please remember that for good PCVR wireless your PC needs to be wired to your Router with ethernet cable and you need good 5GHz wifi close by, preferably in the same room. These requirement are posted on the Virtual discord channel and also repeated on Oculus's latest Air Link blog.
For testing purposes as long as you limit your usage of VD to less than 2 hours you can always request a refund within 2 weeks of purchasing it.
I think that a lot of Q2 users are going to be disappointed with Air Link because they do not meet Router/Wifi requirements and/or do not have a strong enough PC. The new nvidia series 3000 gpu's seem to work best because they have the fastest encoding capabilities. I have a rtx3090 and it rocks with both Link and wireless.
Lol, well, I already own VD and switched to beta with 120Hz support as soon as it came out in author's discord. (along with sideloading v.28 firmware). So nevemind that, I know what to expect from AirLink and mainly I want to see what happens with ASW, as VD doesn't support that. Well that and I want to see if ODT parameters will work fine with V.28 non-PTC version. Currently they work but somewhat buggy and they broke cable speed testing by changing any link-regarded parameters (encoding bitrate, resolution width, etc.).
