For a day or two now, presumably since the latest update, my touch controllers have started flickering in-game, but not all the time. The Oculus menu is fine but as soon as Home loads, one or other of the touch controllers will start flickering and vibrating at a fairly constant rate. It usually seems to be the right controller but it sometimes switches to the left one. I haven't been able to work out what provokes it to switch over. When it flickers, the background is visible through the controller. I've tried new batteries and tried removing them for a few minutes. When I had this problem a couple of months ago I fixed it by opting into the beta channel but I guess the poor code has caught up with me. Opting in and out of the beta channel makes no difference, nor does a full uninstall/reinstall. Again, the oculus menu is fine and the hands are visible. It's only when Home (or almost any game - Google Earth VR is fine for some reason) loads that the problems become apparent.
I see I'm not totally alone but has anyone identified a solution?
I have to say that I'm lucky, until today I had no such problems, except if I leave the controllers outside of my boundary area quite a while, they are like on standby (I think it's made on purpose, if I play a racing game, I don't use controllers almost at all, why they should be online all the time? Battery economy 🙂 ), than they take like 4/5 seconds to get online again once picked up.
But also people say that this problem suddenly appears after you used a Rift for a while, mine it is just new practically and I don't hide that I'm worried

Thanks to odu14ick. He saved my life because my occulust rift s was really close to the garbage can. You will have to scroll up if you want the link because somehow Occulus web site doesnt allow me to do it. Follow the instructions. Its giving you the old version of occulus. I got the same issue as all of you now its fixed. Of course the old version of occulus home does not detect my Version 3 USB but who cares? I can still enjoy!
Anyway is there any news from the devs? Like hey guys we are concerned by your issues we are working on it?
