stutter and hitching every few seconds in pcvr

Honored Guest

I recently upgraded from my CV1 and I'm getting stutter and hitching every few seconds in pcvr on my quest 3. It seems to persist whether I'm using virtual desktop or airlink and happens across all pcvr games and apps from HLA to walkabout minigolf.

The framerate is perfectly smooth the majority of the time but dips dramatically every 5 seconds or so, sometimes worse than others. I've provided video recording of the hitching with high and lowest settings. It seems to persist no matter what settings I'm running.

all my quest/gpu/steam/oculus drivers are up to date and my PC is pretty decent, and as you'll see in the footage I'm getting a consistent 900mbps internet connection so at this point I'm at my wit's end. Does anyone have simmilar issues/a solution to this problem?

I'm pretty desperate to get this working and the stutter makes it pretty unbearable.

Hi @Unkle.Gooch 

I have had similar problems although Meta seem to have quietly fixed the issue I was having whilst streaming using 5ghz although it isn't perfect.

How is your PC connecting to your access point?

Is there anything else connected to that access point?

How far are you away from the access point?

What is the mark and model of the access point / router you are using?

Quest 2, Quest 3, PCVR, Meta Wayfarer
