I won't show this system to my friends nor recommend it for purchase until this issue can be resolved permanently. In fact, avoid it! At least that's how I feel right now. Really frustrated with what I've spent on this with the amount of time screwing with it trying to keep it running.
I played multiple games almost all day yesterday without issue, even my wife was using it. Today I boot up and first the Rift doesn't work, can't detect the headset, check the cable, reboot about 5 times, now the headset is back, but the Touch controllers are locked in position and won't move. Suddenly getting Sensor tracking errors throws me in to recalibrate the sensors, but get poor tracking, all of a sudden it's good, try to play something, boom, sensors drop out again. What the F!
No changes to anything since yesterday, logs are showing alot of 'truncated camera frame' errors, and a few of these: '[DisplayManager] Failed to set power mode on NVidia adapter. -175'
So why? What's going on? Why no issues sometime then all of a sudden a hailstorm.
Kevin Williams warned long ago about sensor issues and guardian bounds jumping around. Causing people to punch their wall! Maybe break fingers. Guys are punching their wives in superhot, breaking wifes jar or knocking out her teeth from these issues, not good to have guardian bounds jumping like this. Kevin posted this video to warn you. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CAtrkMGNp0o
MiReal when your say hmd disconnects which one are you getting as there is two types one says "we can't find your headset" this is a usb issue and another that says "your headset is not plugged in Make sure your hmdi is plugged in" this is when it can't find the headset via the hmdi.
If if it's the second one then check the cable at the headerset end is fully plugged. If so and you still have the infamous hmdi not plugged in message then sit with the headset in your hands with ovulus home open and the notifications tab open and gently twist the headset or apply a little down pressure to the headset arm where the cable plugs in. Just to see if you can trigger the error.
If if this happens then contact support as it may need treplacing.
I had to have mine replaced for hmdi errors.
