I have a rift S and have been using it in my downstairs game room. Well now im looking to relocate just the rift to my upstairs room that has a much larger play space. Ive purchased the necessary wiring and extensions for the display port to go upstairs but i was wondering if it would be easier to just plug the usb 3.0 into a correctly rated wall outlet instead of another run of usb 3.1 extensions which would need to plug into my pc. I guess my main question is does the rift s use the usb for anything other than power?
I am fairly certain it uses the data connection to interface with the Bluetooth and Audio functions of the PC. It might also use them for controller functions. I don't think it is just using the USB for power, but I am not certain by any means.
