I just dusted off my Oculus Rift cv1 and when installing the software it gives me : Hardware error.
The sensors and the controllers work fine but the headset gives no image/display.
The orange light does work on the headset.
Does this mean my headset is broken?
I tried all the trick posted on the internet _de-install\repair and uninstalling and installing Nvidia drivers.
My hardware is GTX 1080 i7 7700

Often it's first when we've lost something that we realize its true value 😉 Great to hear you got it all working! A life without the CV1 would indeed be a less happy one 😁
There's an option to enable or disable Home in the "Settings" tab - if I remember correctly (maybe in the "General" section - but should not be hard to find - also seems you don't need to find it).
Also just to mention it - but after getting a new rig I connected an old drive with about 2TB of Oculus games and apps. I feared I had to reinstall everything - but no, when I added the locations the Meta/Oculus Desktop App simply scanned the location and automatically added the games - I didn't have to reinstall anything, apart from the Oculus Desktop App on the new rig. Just in case you don't know this, might save some hours 😉 Same thing worked with Steam.
Oculus Rift CV1, Valve Index & PSVR2, Asus Strix OC RTX™ 3090, i9-10900K (5.3Ghz), 32GB 3200MHz, 16TB SSD

Yeah the Oculus app found all my games and apps. Great having the home screen back. Spent a few hours in Skybox watching Bladerunner on the a deckchair on the moon - fantastic. My rig is not as good as yours but it does the job. I also keep a spare rift headset and cable in case this one gives up the ghost - not so far though. Again thanks for the help.
