I am a relatively new to Oculus and have only recently bought my first headset (CV1). I also bought the touch controllers as after using them round a friends house I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread!!
My problem is this.....
I am lucky enough to have a relatively square open play space of around 15 feet by 10 feet. No matter where I place the sensors using the cables provided I am unable to get good coverage/tracking when facing the back wall. I understand that my body is blocking the view to the sensors etc.. so I bought a recommended cable matters 5m USB3.0 Active extension cable in order to place one sensor in the opposite corner. No dice. During setup all I get is SENSOR DISCONNECTED or POOR TRACKING. So I decided to try another active cable (CSL), still same issues.
I've now tried 6x Active 5m 3.0 USB and 3 passive 2/3 meter USB 3.0 and can not get anything to work at all. Every cable I plug in I get the same errors. Remove the extension cable and error goes away and all is good in the (vr) world, except I'm back to having bad occlusion on my rear wall. I've considered buying a 3rd sensor, but I'll need around 5m extension to get that in a useful place so there is no point as I wont be able to get a cable to work and the addition of a 3rd sensor might give me even more issues.
I love the rift and the touch controllers, they are seriously the best thing I have ever bought (in terms of a computer experience) but I am getting massively frustrated with the inability to simply extend a cable without getting errors.
It is driving me mad and I have read through endless forums and posts about what cables work, but none of the recommended ones work on my system. The only thing I can think is that it is some kind of USB power issue. could this be the case? I get no problems when there isn't an extension cable so its the only thing I can think of. I'm thinking of buying the recommended Inatek Pci-e usb 3.0 card to plug just the sensor with the extension cable in. Maybe it will solve the issue, but I'm not hopeful if I'm honest and am rapidly running out of funds and love for the Oculus.
Has anybody had a similar experience and if so how did you solve it? I really am at my witts end.
