And now I am getting a message it looks like I have connected a new device, would I like to set up my Rift S now?
This after a long gaming session with it and it is working fine.
And of course still have the red X in the desktop app, showing I have no headset audio.
I have audio through my earbuds in Rift S jack and mic through my USB Mic as I had nothing but problems with Rift S mic.

So everything working swimmingly, but annoyed by the big Red X and message asking if I would like to set up my new Rift S.

Now it's working nicely. Thanks Oculus. I have noticed I'm not getting any kinda of trouble with the microphone after the PTC 1.41 such as the Robotic voice on my Rift S, did someone notice this as well? did they sort it out maybe?


Robotic voices still happen in the PT for both me and a friend. For me and most people it's a random second of static sounding voice when talking in social games. Friend's situation is worse and the static robotic voice sticks forever until he restarts the Rift by unplugging/replugging the USB cable.

I continued to get mic dropouts at most inopportune times - solved it by disabling the mic and adding a desktop USB mic.
I am golden now. Cept Oculus Home still insists on giving me a red X saying I have no headset audio lol.

Look peeps, they are more focused on the quest then they are on the rift. If you buy a rift you should already know the warning signs that its going to be buggy. They don't care if the rift works at all as long as they get the most from the quest. It's like a gimmick ...make sure the rift s doesn't work or ...well, they will have to buy the quest or do without or put up with all the bugs in the rift. Ever since I bought the rift s I have had to spend more time trying to fix issues then getting any experience out of it. So just remember they are all about the Oculus Quest so if you buy a rift then you are just going to have to deal with bad software/hardware and know that backs are being turned on you. They need to add a sticker on the box " USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!"

You were right, the robotic voice still around. I was so excited until my friend says that I was sounding like r2d2 again.

I think the Rift S Mic is not much better if at all than the audio strap.
Which is why I use a USB Desktop Mic and earbuds plugged into Rift S jack.

Rift S is a good headset, but those two quality issues are not so good for the Oculus name.
