  :#  Please fix the download issues ! Downloading is a hassle on oculus store, especially in case of low speed ADSL or 4G. Downloads frequently stop, every 5 minutes or so, and I have to manually restart again, and again... Asgard's Wrath was impossible to download here. No problem on Steam, or others app stores.

Static mic bug still happens in 1.42 branch. Random times when talking in social VR my voice (and my friend's with his S) turns into a second of staticy, robotic crackly voice before returning to normal.
Sometimes the voice is permanent instead of just a second - and requires a replugging of the USB to be fixed.
PC hardware is irrelevant, I got it on my old and new PC and my friend got it on his old and new PC, I've read of others also getting this issue both on these forums and on Reddit. This is a software or firmware issue that needs fixing. Might be related to USB bandwidth or be related to the old "static flash" visual bug.


Same here. I'm still having this issue with the robotic voice that my friends are hearing from me when playing vr with them. I also hear all sorts cracking and static sound. 

From what I can read in the comments here and on reddit, this is affecting many users.

Please, Oculus, work on these issues instead of adding fancy things and nice to have to the home app, and  don't ask me to uninstall/reinstall or try different usb ports because I already tried.

I will open a ticket to let them know that I'm affected by these two issues and everyone else having these should do too.

I'm also with the robotic voice when using the mic.

It would be nice if they could fix the mic issues with either firmware or software.
I am having my doubts they can, so using a USB desktop mic. It works at all times, something my Rift S mic will not do.

thank you for update.
displayport is not working 1.42.0.309426.
displayport stay connected 10sec. but disconnected after 10sec.
depending on the USB port, the time may stay connected 5sec.
i got both logs and sent.

he has same issues. and he has ticket too.
It seems that he investigating in more detail than me. his ticket may be useful.
what is interesting in his case is that it worked properly with Rift (not Rift S).
