OCULUS QUEST 2 - AMD DRIVERS - NOT CONNECTING

Jump to solution

Once again, AMD drivers made me waste LITERALY whole day fixing something that is unfixable. I was trying to connect Quest 2 with multiple cables, official, unofficial, usb c straight to gpu, all motherboard ports, resetting everything that is possible. The same thing goes with Air Link, googles detect computer, but won't connect. 

What I found out after hours of online investigation is... ADRENALIN DRIVERS ! It is known that there are just couple of drivers version that work with oculus because AMD is destroying everything that they try to "optymise' and fix it months or years later. 

Fist of all - connecting quest to pc causes oculus app to infinite restart after plugging it into port. I have noticed it is correctly recognized, creates few instances on computer such as drivers in device manager.

Second trying to connect it with Air link causes app to restart and disable that option - quest 2 detects pc, but just after pressing pair button computer disappears. 

I had to pay for Virtual Desktop Aplication to make it work and it does it flawlessly, just as official oculus app should 

There are multiple videos explaining that there is nothing wrong with computer... but with AMD drivers and GPU.

Pc specs - X570 ROG, Ryzen 5 5600x, RX6800, !6GB 3200. 

And yes, it works normally on my 7 years old laptop, so it's not googles problem

Exact same issue for me. The oculus app kept closing and reloading. I ended up with multiple oculus.exe instances running at once.

 Rolling back to the previous driver version fixed it for me.

I'm using an RX 6700 XT and a R5 3600.

Same issue! Neither wired nor air link work - instead it results in a crash and software reboot loop.

 

I have an RX 5700 reference and 3600x CPU. 

 

Will going back to an old driver fix this?

AMD - can you please fix this.

I've got two Vega 64s (in secondary systems) and a 6900XT (in my primary gaming/VR system) and this constant oculus link breakage and bugs with recent driver updates is unacceptable for top tier video cards advertised as VR premium.  I've got the packing boxes right here, all 3 cards list "VR premium" on the box.

TEST WITH OCULUS AND OTHER VR HEADSETS.  If a driver breaks oculus link on your top end cards, it is not release ready!

Constantly rolling back drivers literally every few driver updates because VR support is broken on your top tier hardware yet again is not a solution.

 

 

this isn't a new problem

(not my video, but from the second-last radeon vs. link calamity in the last 6-7 months)

PC VR software is enough of a house of cards already without the drivers getting in the way.
