Strange new problem

Level 2

Just started happening. Oculus Home begins loading with the infinite grid room but only the top half shows. Bottom half is solid black. When first appearing in the home, you are placed what looks like 30 feet below the home outside any usable area. The only way to enter a program i.e. Google Earth, is to launch from PC. When the program opens you are under the map and unable to move into the playable area making the headset and controllers unusable. You cannot "fly up" into the map. Have uninstalled and reinstalled program, installed current video drivers, beta on and off and no solution. Has anyone experienced this and hopefully figured it out?


Getting that problem recently. After a short period of time the cameras switch on as if preparing to set the play area. Sadly though the set up play area messages do not appear and when looking around for them I spotted the outline of my play area on the ceiling. Uninstalled the oculus software and reinstalled it however the problem persists.
