This just started happening in 1.14. After a few minutes no sound. Right before it goes out it sounds like static. Restarting oculus software fixes it temporarily. Ive tried 3 different types of USB ports, 3.1, 3.0, PCI 3.1, including VR Ready ones.
Could the oculus tray tool cause this?
Also, when I first start Oculus up, sound is abnormally loud. When I click on the volume adjuster, even if I dont change it, it goes back to the volume level it should be.
Hi I am having the exact same problem you are, when I plug in my CV1 into the VR 3.1 ready usb port on my MSI Z270 M7 MOBO the sound stops after a few minutes I tried other usb 3.0 ports on the hub and it works just fine, so what's the point of this port then if it doesn't even work ? Have you found a solution ?
If other USB ports work, then you should probably just use them. Rift can work on both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. I've heard reports of some USB 3.1 ports not working fully. This could be part of it, or it could be a driver issue. Not really sure.
USB 3.0 ports will be full quality, and USB 2.0 is technically lower quality but I found it to not be a noticeable difference. You can try using the sensors on the VR ports, but I don't think there will be a huge difference there either versus the normal USB 3.0 ports.
