Wired Oculus disconnecting...
« on: April 30, 2024, 09:00:26 AM »
There is no reasoning behind it.  At first, I thought it was related to the Oculus signalling that the battery was fully charged and shutting down the USB, however, the USB power settings are all set to disabled.

I have a new cable arriving today, but that seems to be a stretch as the headset is used for nothing other than AH presently.  I do have DCS which I may look at testing to see if the same issue occurs as a control.

Has anyone else had the Oculus just get disconnected and random intervals???

What APP are you using to connect to your PC?

I was having that issue. USB hub with external power adapter solved it.

No app other than the Oculus.  I start the Oculus, go to Rift settings where it shows if you are connected via USB or Wireless.  Once wired connection is established, a white Matrix-like grid appears and AH, DCS, and any other "connected" games are shown.  Use the Oculus controller and click... do the nose peak to the monitor, click on AH pop up for using Oculus and game starts up... and then drops at random intervals, usually after a climb to 30k chasing a set of bombers.  :(

I just saw that Amazon has delivered my new one... here's hoping  :pray

This is next on the "fix-it" list.  The USB I'm using is on the backside of this PC which, to be fair, is 12 years old so I guess I can put a few more dollars into it  :D

The proprietary cables these vr headsets use seems to be a weak link..maybe on purpose..

Vive pro has the same issue with theirs

Should use powered USB hubs for your hotas too

I go into the PC through that Oculus app and load the games from desktop mode
