Rift S "Something went wrong and your device can't track the movement of your headset"

Expert Protege
Getting the message "Something went wrong and your device can't track the movement  of your headset" in the notification every time the tracking locks up on the Rift S.
Anyone experiencing the same message?

Me too! Love to know why this keeps popping up. Side note, my Rift S is absolutely not working 'right'. So many problems so far. Wondering if this error, whatever its origin, is the root of the problem. 

Expert Protege
Could be. Does your audio cut out for a second when it happens?

im having the same problem anyone found a solution yet?

I'm disappointed that the headset is so buggy... To fix your tracking;
1. Unplug Headset
2.Reset PC
3. Plug in USB 3.0
4. Open Oculus Software
5. Go to "Devices", and make sure the USB is detected
6. Plug in DisplayPort after 60 seconds
7. Put on Headset
8. If remotes are tracked then take off headset FAST. because the software glitches and freezes (cuz its shit)
9. Open steam vr
10. ENJOY! and avoid using Oculus's shitty buggy software, stick with steam vr

TIP: Play Job Simulator to fully test your headset. It is an insanely reliable game! Play games only on steam vr and don't buy them on the Oculus store. (Racing games don't work AT ALL for me, Superhot vr only worked last night, it's broken now.)

IMPORTANT: If STEAMVR asks to setup room scale then you are having the same tracking error as me. Ignore it and follow the steps

Wish you all luck! 

Feel free to ask me anything or share anything! I'm looking for some rift s buddy's lol. 6139039339

What? Sure yoy cant use the headset without the oculus app running in the background.

Expert Protege
Ticket answered. Waste of time Oculus have no clue whats going on. 
I want a refund.

I think I solved mine. 
Make sure when playing steam vr its tracking is facing the same way as you would in the oculus tracking

I had this issue for 3 days, I was using a USB 3.0 port in the front of my tower as it was the only port the sensors would verify at all, but then the tracking would cut out after a few minutes. This PCIe card fixed all my problems!

Expert Protege
Ordered another one of these PCI-e cards to try. This is my last go and I'm out as I am 7 days without one decent update from Oculus on why a brand new £400 headset does not work.
