what is going on,I've updated nothing and the bloomin setup is here again?

Where's the 'marker' that wants me to go through setup again?
Is it in a file,in the exe?

I know it's annoying - but I think Nike's right regarding redoing the setup:

It doesn’t. I’ve updated many drivers and it hasn’t ever done that yet.

Same here - normally - but I just upgraded to 417.35 and was asked to redo my sensor setup when starting the Oculus app.

since I upgraded to 417.35 I've had hdmi problems, as soon as I upgraded and I plug in my hdmi anf try to set it up the oculus app closes and says that oculus has detected a hardware issue that is preventing you from setting up your rift every 10-15 seconds. So I cant use the rift at all.

Nvidia has just issued a hot-fix driver 417.58, I wonder if that one could help:

https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4758

 - otherwise you could try downgrading to an earlier 4xx.xx driver. You could try the 411.51 - that was the review driver when 2080 (Ti) launched, I bet Nvidia had that driver extremely thoroughly checked also in VR in order to avoid bad press on the 2080 (Ti) launch day.

@RuneSR2 - Nvidia have left me not knowing what driver to install for the Oculus Rift. So what is the best Nvida driver for Oculus Rift, because I'll be dammed if I know? I'm fed up having to keep rolling back drivers because I find faults like jitter or slow loading screens etc. 

Sounds like Nvidia don't give a damn about Oculus Rift and if it works with their drivers or not..

I usually just stay with whatever driver I have, until i need to update. Just cos it's released doesn't mean you have to have it.

I was using 388.43 from Dec 2017 until Nov 2018 when I updated to 416.94

I've had no Rift problems (yet), but I'd like to thank all you testers for helping me to avoid the problems. 🙂

Dear Oculus, If it ain't broke, don't fix it, please.
