If you don't want to watch the video that's cool, here's a summary;

Over the last few months I've been testing various cables for use with my four sensor setup. What I quickly discovered was that not all cables are created equal in the eyes of the Oculus Rift!

The Rift and Sensors can be a bit stubborn when it comes to cables. Some work intermitantly, some report USB 3.0 as USB 2.0, some give audio issues when using with the Rift and some just point blank refused to work.

I think I've finally nailed down the best cables which I've personally tested and would recommend to use with your Rift.

Due to the summer sale I know we have an influx of new Rift users so hopefully this guide helps.

Here's the links where you can buy these cables for yourself;

u/mikegriffin84 · 25 pointsr/oculus

This is what I have experimented with and works great on multiple systems... For you look at step 2 and 3.

1st GET A THIRD SENSOR IF YOU WANT TRUE ROOMSCALE "they are on backorder at the moment"

2nd Get three of these for your sensors to make sure they can reach anywhere you want them too: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

3rd Get 2 of these to completely isolate all of you VR components from the sometimes janky unreliable USB ports on A LOT of motherboards that cannot supply enough power and/or bandwidth for all of the cameras and HMD to work properly I chose this card because it only has two ports and both of those ports work no matter if you plug in 2 sensors or 1 sensor and the HMD. The Inatek card DOES have issues for somewhere some ports work and others do not and are still only being able to run 2 sensors off the Inatek card and having to run the HMD and 3rd sensor off the motherboard. The Orico card just works and you don't have to think about experimenting with ports just plug everything into the two Orico cards in any configuration and go. Also use the default Windows drivers whether you go with the Inatek or Orico card only upgrade after trying the defaults drivers without success: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AVSN2YG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

4th This is optional. One of these for extending your HMD HDMI cable by 15ft for a total of 28ft: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008D5EUD2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

5th This repeater is required to make the HDMI cable above work, but with this repeater, the extension is flawless: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GHL72XS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

6th To extend the Rift HMD USB I use the USB 2.0 Active Extension Monoprice Repeater Cable that comes with the 3rd sensor it is 16ft long, works perfectly. Then I used a small piece of electrical tape every 6 inches from the HMD to the PC to make the extended HMD cable one piece leaving about 2 ft of cable loose at the end to be able to plug in wherever I want.
I did a lot of research bought the Inateck and Orico USB add-on cards, multiple active USB extensions, multiple different HDMI adapters and extensions of varying lengths, Display port to HDMI adapters, DVI to HMDI adapters, and did all the experimentation and testing required to make all this work. The list I listed above works every time on multiple systems in different environments, rooms, and households.
If you need clarification on anything and/or want more information, feel free to respond or message me. I will gladly help.

After you get your USB cards installed and you sensors plugged in with the hardware I listed above reboot the system and the follow the below instructions.

Also when you get your stuff after everything is installed and setup do this as a last step for good measure:
Once the sensor setup has fully completed, search for PowerShell in the Windows start menu, right click it, and click 'Run as administrator'
Copy all of this PowerShell script (hit Ctrl-A, then Ctrl-C), then paste it into the PowerShell window (Ctrl-V), then hit Enter
Once it has completed, close PowerShell and restart your computer (this is important)
Here is the link to the script, just copy all the text on the page and past it into powershell: http://pastebin.com/raw/9f9MMny1
This basically sets all of your usb cards and ports to a high power no sleep mode and assures that Windows doesn't try to manage your usb's at the wrong time in the wrong way. I am not sure if I needed to do this but I just did it for good measure. I did all of the manually until I found this script that somebody else on reddit made. Just makes it quicker and easier than changing all the settings one by one.

Note if you haven't done this already you can do it now with your current setup to see if it helps "Probably won't but it may"

u/whitedragon101 · 13 pointsr/oculus

I did a group test on USB3 extenders here is what I found out :

I tested using an Asus z170 Deluxe motherboard it has both Intel and AsMedia USB3 ports. I also used the Oculus recommended Inatek 7 port USB 3 Card.

——Worked——

Cables in this category mean the sensor detected as USB3 in Oculus devices and didn’t lose connection and provided solid tracking testing with the headset on, no matter what brand of USB3 port it was connected to (Intel, AsMedia,Inatek).

MutecPower 5m active USB3 extension cable £22

(picture seems to be wrong on amazon website, also note this cable seems to be sold as various brands but I'm pretty sure its all the same cable, it should look like this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01BLPSU2W/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

CableCreation 5m active USB3 extension cable £12

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Amazon Basics 1m Passive USB3 extension cable £4

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NH13UFQ/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

——Sort of Worked——

Cable Matters 3m Passive USB3 extension cable £7

Detected as USB3 when using the InatekCard (which has extra power from a SATA power connector)

Detected as USB2 when using motherboard Intel or AsMedia USB3 ports

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MPMFKSI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Cable Matters 5m Active USB3 extension cable £11

Only worked as USB 3 in one of the AsMedia ports and only when everything else was disconnected. Was USB2 or has an error in other AsMedia or Intel ports. Detected as USB3 in the Inatek Card and seemed ok testing in Oculus home loading area.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MPMFKSI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


——Didn’t work——

Belfen Superspeed 5m active USB3 extension cable £7

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0179EPUEK/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

detected as USB2 on every USB3 port including Inatek card

u/Brink_GG · 12 pointsr/OculusQuest

I bought these to test with:

Amazon Basics USB 3.0 A to C cable


Right angle USB C adapters


And I have this left over from my Oculus CV1 accessory kit wishlist I put on amazon. I'll report back here with what works and what doesn't. I'm also going to get a public google sheet going of cables, adapters (right angle) and active/passive extensions that work so that people can use that as reference.

EDIT: Link to sheet. Anyone with link can edit. Don't make me regret that. I will lock it. (Though if you want to fix my terrible formatting, feel free.)
EDIT: Had to disable open edit permissions. Going to add a form that will add unformatted data at the bottom, then I'll format it properly into the thread. Here's the form: https://forms.gle/uzyHvmgyXJGuVkKM9

u/st23576 · 8 pointsr/oculus

There was some guy who tested a bunch of extenders with the Rift sensor on youtube.

I ended up ordering this one because as I recall he determined this was the best passive extender:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/

u/VR_Bummser · 8 pointsr/OculusQuest

For everyone in Germany. I can confirm these two cables work flawlessly, giving together 6.8 meters of freedom.

u/drrenhoek · 5 pointsr/oculus

Few useful links to get you started.

Oculus Rift Room Scale Setup Guide

List of recommended cable extensions

I'm using 3 Sensor setup in L configurations with CableCreation CD0034 and Inateck Superspeed 4 Ports PCI-E to USB 3.0 Expansion Card. My sensors are mounted about 10 inches and 40 degrees away from the ceiling. Perfect tracking in the play area. Good tracking out of usual play area, when in bed playing seated games in view of only two sensors which are 12 to 15 feet away.

u/Dixonian89 · 5 pointsr/oculus

Lots have used them and reported working on here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pjMerZPmJgkqwMKeYzvy4yGzWu2bu_1T_6m3nNmJkBU/edit#gid=0

mine will be delivered today (I'll be testing it tonight), I will report back once I find out if it works or not.

These are the cables I purchased, both are confirmed to be working from others, if it works I will have a total of 26 feet for my Quest to PC setup. I will be testing them in about 5 hours from now:

Cable (10 ft version, which is sold out): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MZIPYPY/

Extension: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8

​

Edit: these both worked great for Link on the quest. I now have a 26 ft setup for only $24 total! The Anker cable even came with a Velcro cable tie i'm using to secure the cable to the headstrap so it doesn't yank out of the USB port on the Quest while playing a game.

u/lilgreenrosetta · 5 pointsr/photography

Well in that case you might want to have a look at this cable on Amazon. The design is, as far as I can see, 100% identical to yours. You might want to have a lawyer look at that.

For what it's worth I have one of each and for me the Cablecreation one is currently proving more reliable than the Tether Tools one so if it's an imitation they haven't done a terrible job.

u/TalonX273 · 4 pointsr/OculusQuest

Might be a difference in hardware, but I'm actually floored at how little latency there is. Any latency I felt I could effortlessly compensate for. Via Link, I played my usual Beat Saber Expert + maps on Steam VR. It felt damn near identical to my CV1 (tri-sensor setup) allowing me to get my usual scores. What really surprised me was the lack of occasional stuttering in Beat Saber I normally got from my CV1 setup. I can only describe what team Oculus has done as pure black magic! Like you said though, it's not on the level of an Index PCVR setup. But holy crap, at the price point and added portability, it's more than good enough for most!

For reference, my setup is: i5-3570K, GTX 1060 6GB, Inatek 4-port USB 3 PCI card, CableCreations USB 3 Active extension cable, and Anker 6ft USB C-to-3.0 cable. Might order the 10ft cable for more mobility.

u/PMental · 4 pointsr/oculus

I used these for the USB (5m or ~16ft) works with both Rift and Sensor): https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Active-Extension-Extender-Female/dp/B0179MXKU8

And a passive 3m (~10ft) HDMI 2.0 extension: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Microconnect-HDMI-M-F-3m-HDMI-Cables-HDMI-HDMI-Male-Female-Gold-Black/191955932795

They are connected to and work well with my ASUS Z97-K motherboard for the USB and a Sapphire R9 290X GPU (on of the Tri-X OC'd ones).

Ymmv.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/OXIOXIOXI · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

MRTV got this 5M active extender working https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8

He also plugged a 1M C to A cable in to connect it to the headset, total of 19 bucks. Does anyone know a longer cable I can plug into this extender? Like 2 or 3M? Just want to know before I order.

u/ii46 · 3 pointsr/oculus

So... I have a Frankenstein's cable-monster:

http://i.imgur.com/K16KkTq.jpg

I've connected each of two "rear" sensors to amazon's 3 meter usb 3.0 extenders which are connected to powered USB 3.0 hub... which is connected to another 5 meter extender ( cable creation gold ) and this one is connected to my pc xD

I don't use any pci-e usb cards. It works fine with intel's usb controller on Z97 motherboard.

u/ExplodingFist · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

My existing CV1 setup already had wiring for 4 sensors, 3 of which required active extension, so I tapped into the far one that went across the ceiling with the 10 foot USB-C Anker 3.0 cable recommended by Oculus, and it works flawlessly.

The visuals were excellent. For me this looks better than the Rift S (personally, since I have an IPD of 59, along with the beautiful OLED displays this has). I didn't notice any artifacts or compression when playing, but I do think this thing is sensitive to having a very good USB port, so results may vary.

The lower refresh rate is definitely noticeable compared to the CV1 and I played worse than usual in beat saber (on expert). The tracking is also obviously more limited than the CV1 with more than 2 sensors (which this would beat), especially in games like Echo VR, but I also had some issues with the S in that game when I tried it. This is comparing to a perfect 4 sensor setup with a $120 quad channel USB card, so it's not exactly fair.

You can't beat the simplicity this provides for just getting into PCVR.

Here is the link the the extension cable. It's cheaper than it was back when I got them for my sensors: https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Extension-Extender-Booster-Compatible/dp/B0179MXKU8

u/Kesnei · 2 pointsr/oculus

However, it will be VERY obvious to you when you need the third sensor.You'll find yourself frequently facing the direction without sensors and visual glitches everywhere, trying to turn around and deal with whatever in game objective you were dealing with previously.

Seems kinda janky. Some games run well and uh some really do not lol

Not faulting anything since well AMD isn't supported to begin with, and well it's a beta that JUST came out, but I'm hoping that it gets ironed out as the beta goes along. Really see the potential and it could be a great thing once it all gets sorted out.

Oh I should probably list specs? We're all probably running around trying to figure out exactly what cable to get so figured it'd help posting em.

Wanted to make a quick post - using the Anker recommended cable (3M).
I tried the AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable along with Cable Matters USB to USB Extension Cable - Both 3M - neither worked.


Finally, I tried CableCreation Active USB Extension Cable (Long 16.4 FT) - THIS WORKS, and it's way longer than the others.

I use my Rift about 10 ft from my PC so I purchased the recommended cable and PCIe card. Only needed if youre playing away from you main PC

u/sexysausage · 2 pointsr/oculus

I have three sensors now. Only one has an extension ( and I didn't use the usb2.0 cable provided by oculus, instead I used the one I bought for my two sensor experimental setup, that's an active usb3.0 )

this one: CableCreation Gold (Long 16FT) Super Speed USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable, USB 3.0 Extender USB A-Male to A-Female Cable, 5Meter/16ft, Black


  • the single usb 3.1 is connected to a sensor with a 16ft usb3.0 active cable extension. ( the one I linked )

    • . the four usb 3.0 from top to bottom as follows:

  • top left keyboard
  • top right mouse

  • bottom left is the Rift headset usb 3.0

  • bottom right is a sensor usb 3.0 without extension
    • front panel two usb 3.0

      left usb 3.0 is a sensor without extension
  • right usb 3.0 is free and unused.


    I have a 650w power suply, a i7 processor and a 1080ti, and 16 gig or ram, dunno if it makes any difference
u/TayoEXE · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

Just a reminder, you need a VR-ready PC to play PC VR games, so it needs to be a powerful gaming PC.

And you don't have to cancel your Anker cable necessarily. There are extensions you can get that make up for the length until the official Link cable comes out. I've heard from several people this one works for example.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8

That one will add 16 extra feet for a total of 22 feet for yours. And it's quite cheap.

u/bushmaster2000 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Ceiling height is best as it'll give the tracking cone that comes out of the sensor maximum size before it hits you. But plenty of people use them on their desk as well, not how i'd recommend doing it but it works.

You should use an active usb extension for best results. These are the ones I use on my sensors

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

​

But there's another issue which is USB controller bandwidth. Oculus recommends plugging your first 2 sensors and HMD into USB3, and plug your 3rd sensor into USB2 so its on a different USB controller as to prevent USB bandwidth saturation.

u/inantbh · 2 pointsr/oculus

PSA: I was having issues with the sensor constantly disconnecting using the OP's active cable and Oculus' recommended Intateck card. Just purchased the CableCreation extension after reading this post and it seems to have solved my problem.

u/LoneKrafayis · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I would get a USB wireless dongle, USB extension, and a directional antenna. To make this work, the dongle must have a removable antenna. If shipping is not an expense, I would buy step-by-step, starting with the dongle, then extension, finally the antenna (and antenna mounting solution).

I have no personal experience with this equipment. It was chosen because of features (like replaceable antennas) and Amazon reviews.

Alfa AWUS036AC Long-Range Dual-Band AC1200 Wireless USB Adapter With 2x Dual-Band (2.4GHz / 5GHz) external antenna for Extreme Distance Connection - Up to 300 Mbps - USB 3.0 - AC1200 Wireless chip - USB desktop Dock Included

Alfa APA-M25 dual band 2.4GHz/5GHz 10dBi high gain directional indoor panel antenna with RP-SMA connector (compare to Asus WL-ANT-157)

All together, this is 95 CAD, but I expect the first item will solve the problem. If you do get the high-gain antenna, try it as a replacement of each of the side antennas on the USB dongle. This is because one antenna might be more important to the device then the other.

u/FearTheTaswegian · 2 pointsr/oculus

No problem. Best stick to the cables & cards etc in the FAQ here if you can, especially if using long cables at the usb max lengths. FWIW my more distant two sensors are fed by a single active 5m USB3 cable

Works flawlessly. No issues whatsoever. Only thing is you have to power cycle the link box after you plug the Odyssey in otherwise it won't be detected.

u/br0squit0 · 2 pointsr/oculus

I am using a 16 ft. USB 3.0 active adapter and also have a 6 ft. USB 3.0 (non active) plugged into the same sensor (totaling in 22 ft.) no issues and shows up as USB 3.0 on Oculus Home.


These are the ones I used:

u/Ajedi32 · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

If you want to go much longer than 3m you're probably gonna need an active extension cable. This 5m one works, according to tests by some other users: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0179MXKU8/

Then you can plug it into a shorter A-to-C cable for even more length.

u/Zundrel · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

If you intend to do that, you'd likely need an active USB extension cable such as https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0179MXKU8/.

u/Slowpc · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

I got my cable in and grabbed one of my Cable Creations 3.0 5m cables out of the closet and it seems to be working fine. Got to soften up this anker cable and get some more velcro tiedowns but it worked great in some pavlov matches.

u/DraygonZero · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

Maybe, but I refunded the UGreen and got the CableCreation extender instead. It works, but it doesn't have added power so it won't charge as well. Still works for me though!If the Ugreen doesn't work for others, try this one: https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Extension-Extender-Booster-Compatible/dp/B0179MXKU8/ref=sr_1_13?keywords=cablecreation&qid=1574475246&sr=8-13

u/Godit82 · 2 pointsr/oculus

I had a similar problem with my rooms about 10' apart and had to move my PC to the VR space and running extensions back to my desk for my monitor and peripherals.

I got a powered USB hub mounted on my desk with a 16' active USB 3.0 extension plugged into the back of the PC down the hall. I wanted 3.0 because I am using that Ethernet port on the USB hub too. I also got a 15ft DVI extension for the monitor so I ended up with only have two cables to hide in the hallway. The cable clips aren't invisible but they are at least neat and clean. The 16' of cable for 10' of hallway was just enough length so make sure you get enough to make a few turns or go up and down walls.

u/Talwyn_Wize · 2 pointsr/oculus

Some possible solutions I've come across in my own search for solutions once:

Does anyone else have a computer you can test your gear on? If you can get it to work there, at least you'll know the Rift is working. Might pinpoint your troubles more.

Can you get your Rift to work without the Inateck card? There's probably a reason why you bought it, but you might be able to see if the card is the issue.

Do the sensors work fine without extension cables? They can certainly be the culprit. I use these, and they're the only ones I'd recommend at this point - several others failed me. :(

Get rid of f.lux if you use it, because I experienced judder when that was running. You can activate night-mode in windows 10 now, anyway, so it's not needed.

An unlikely fail, but you'll experience such troubles if you've forgotten to remove the plastic sticker/film on your sensors. ;)

If you have the option, you can test your video card in another PCIe slot, in case it's faulty.

Make sure you're not using an app that limits framerate (like MSI Afterburner or RivaTuner), or a screencapture software.

Driver for the xbox controller has caused some to get judder. Uninstall and see if it helps.

Teamviewer has for some caused lag. Skype Desktop too.

Limit the amount of USB devices on your computer. Disconnect everything you don't need. If that helps, it's most likely USB power issues.

If all else fails, reinstall windows 10 with a fresh install. It's staggering how many that's helped, going by the forum, but it's a pain to
have to do. :-/

Don't know if any of it will be of use, but it'll help excluding the cause at least.

Good luck!

u/Spaceguy5 · 2 pointsr/hotas

Your mileage will vary based on your computer hardware but personally I'm using an unpowered cheapo hub that supports USB 2.0 from Wal-Mart
(which only has my Warthog throttle + stick + TRP pedals plugged in), and I'm using a long USB 3.0 extension that has a repeater (which was leftover from my Oculus setup. My flight sim setup is too far from my desktop to reach). It's plugged into a USB 3.0 port on my computer, as 3.0 supports a higher current draw. Have had zero issues so far, though I plan to upgrade to a cheapo 3.0 hub (only using the 2.0 temporarily as I had it laying around).

If you have an unpowered hub laying around, it's worth trying. But if you want a guarantee of no issues (especially if your computer power supply is on a tight margin), a powered hub may be the way to go.

If you're in no hurry and have stores nearby with good return policies, you could even buy a cheap unpowered and return it if it doesn't work.

u/Honda_TypeR · 2 pointsr/oculus

So I had this issue with rift on and off for a year

My end game solution, after wasting tons of money on failed solutions, was buying an 4 independent bus usb 3.0 pcie expansion board (plugged into pcie 16x slot)

I tried a cheap 1 usb bus cards with 4 USB ports and it just is too much strain for 1 bus with all these cameras plus everything else on my PC. Even with that extra bus on that expansion card it’s simply not enough.

what finally worked was the 4 independent 3.0 buses on that card.

I have 3 rift cameras and the headset plugged into the card each one with a dedicated usb bus and none of on my mobo

I’m on mobile at the moment but lemme try to find the link.. if I can’t it was from Startech

Here think this is it https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Express-SuperSpeed-Dedicated-Channels/dp/B00HJZEA2S

Make sure you select quad bus or you will be wasting your time.

The last part of this usb disconnect drama for me was a proper usb 3.0 repeater extension cable (on my 3rd and furtherest rear camera). I did a lot of buying and experimenting with these too but this one is the one that finally played nice with rift

https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Extension-Extender-Repeater-Booster/dp/B0179MXKU8/

After this combo I now finally have flawless no random disconnect usage of my rift

Took a damn year to sort all this out.

I hope it helps

Current VR list I have on Steam

https://i.imgur.com/5iUid4bl.png

Zero Caliber is quite a bit of fun but lacking in the map department. But I don't know of any other game where you can grab one of your teammates and ride them into battle firing an AK-47 over their head using them as a meat-shield.

B&S is basically VR hitbox porn but they have been pushing out the updates and it gets cooler every time. (Moddable)Gorn is good if you are just looking to vent frustration (Also Moddable)A-Tech WAS good... But it was basically abandoned for nearly a year because PlayStation offered them "F*ck you money" to make a PSVR version.

Killing floor and Arizona Sunshine are both fun in their own respects but both feel a bit too short with not a lot of replayability.

The Forest isn't too horrible for being a VR port and hiding in a cabin in the middle of the night as cannibals surround you is freaky as all hell.

​

Games I have on Oculus Launcher

House of the Dying Sun is actually quite a bit fun. It's seated with a controller.

KingSpray Graffiti is relaxing if you like doing any kind of artwork. Even bad artwork.

From other suns is fun as well but also short, same with Gunheart

Echo VR is motion-sickness simulator 2019 but still quite a bit of fun when you can actually find a match.

RoboRecall is basically Oculus' flagship game so it's more built to show off the Oculus vs. Repeatable gameplay.

​

These are the games I've pretty much played all the way through at one time or another.

As for my setup, Using a Oculus Rift CV1 with 3 sensors hooked into my laptop, one via direct USB the other two plugged into a j5Create 3 port powered USB hub and those two are the rear and the right corner of my room connected to the hub and the sensors with this

hey folks just thought i'd share this,

i had one of these - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

hanging around from when i had my rift cv1 quad sensor setup and i found it works great for link when paired with a short usb c cable i got with a phone somewhere that worked with link, but was too short to be useful. i dont notice any latency. the cable is a bit heavy, so what i do is i feed the female end of the cable though a carabiner on my beltloop, and then plug in the short one, so the cable connected to my face just goes down to my waist, and the weight of the cable is supported by the carabiner rather than tugging on the quest's usb port

u/Andrew1431 · 1 pointr/virtualreality

What do you mean active extensions?

I just purchased this, I assume because it has the signal repeater that is what you're referring to?

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I had trouble with the cable I purchased earlier, it was not working below 70% battery, but that kind of makes sense. Incase anyone has a similar issue, make sure your quest is fully charged before trying this out!

(Oculus Link does charge the headset, but my assumption is that it draws way less power above 90% battery life.)

u/jeezuscat · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

Word of warning - from other comments, it doesn't appear as though this Amazon basics extension works. It needs to be an active extension. From this thread, both of these should work:

This CableCreation Active extension works great with my 3ft Anker. Be sure the get the USB 3.0 version. Downside is, it's stiff and heavy so I have to fasten the end of the cable to my pants with a clip so that its not dangling.

More information needed before we can even attempt to help here.

  • Brand of extension. - Edit Answered - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8
  • How long is the extension - Answered 16ft
  • are you extending the headset or sensor?
  • Have you tried putting whatever device you are extending to a different USB port?
  • Does the device work fine without the extender?

    Edit: 16ft is pretty damn long. You might want to look at a shorter option. You might have issues with power from your motherboard.

Yeah I checked it out again and it's more like $60 to do it correctly @ 16' with a repeater and ceiling mount. Think that $80 - $100 included extending the sensors.

u/nalex66 · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

Not sure offhand; the extenders are routed up my walls and across to my sensors currently, so I wasn't planning to take one down until November when the Link beta starts. This is the extender cable, and this is the A to C cable that I'm using. They're both USB 3.0, so they ought to be up to the task (apparently Oculus Link is limited to 150 Mbps due to the the decoding on Quest, so there's plenty of bandwidth headroom on USB 3.0).

Not very clear on your post, but I'm assuming you're having issues with the USB cable. AFAIK, you need active cables to pull enough power.

u/Philyk_ · 1 pointr/oculus

Hm, I wouldn't think so. From my understanding, a power adapter "repeats" the signal to reach farther distances. So having two separate cables plugged into two different USB ports on your PC won't require a power adapter since it's not needing to travels further In a single line.
I actually have this one and it works flawlessly. I got this to replace the passive cable that kept disconnecting and this one has been working perfectly, also doesn't use a power adapter! (Doesn't even have an input for a power adapter for that matter). If you have worries about two 5m cables, I would suggest just picking up a single adapter and try it out without and if it has disconnecting issues try the power adapter for some troubleshooting and if it fixes it, just order another one for the second 5m cable. Not a problem! Hope this helps!

So I experienced this with my Samsung Odyssey+ even after purchasing a usb 3.0 10' repeater cable that was said to work well with the oculus. I ended up grabbing a usb 3.0 powered hub that i connected to the repeater cable and plugged the powered hub in to a regular power outlet and the issue was resolved. My current issue is that the HDMI cable I used to extend it by 10' caused severe signal disconnects and visual "noise".

​

Here is the equipment I used:

I use there for my sensors:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0179MXKU8?ref_=pe_1365641_54848841

They didnt work for my rift though (they gave me sound crackles in the headphones)

u/pixxelpusher · 1 pointr/oculus

Yeah the headset does tilt a bit, enough to press into your face. If you take it off and just hold it in your hands you can see the side arms can rotate up and down, maybe like 10 degrees or so, which in turn changes the angle of the display part. On me this shift is enough to almost close the nose gap.

I use 2x 5m active USB 3.0 extenders that look like the Monoprice / CableCreations ones (a lot of people gave them good reviews on here), but they're generic branded so cheaper and would be the same components, as a few companies just rebrand them:

u/BurningBagofShit · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

I've used some passive extenders that were 50/50. I then got these active extenders here: https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Extension-Extender-Booster-Compatible/dp/B0179MXKU8/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_147_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=16DSESSC6C9SAPZRXGDX

​

I run a hub at the end of it without an issue.

u/19950721 · 1 pointr/mixedreality

I got my usb to 16 feet with this.

https://www.amazon.ca/CableCreation-Active-Extension-Extender-Female/dp/B0179MXKU8

But what coupler are you using for hdmi? I cant get mine past 5 feet.

u/Lancks · 1 pointr/WindowsMR

USB is the harder one. You'll need a very good mobo or an extension card (at least PCIE x4 to support the needed bandwidth/power). For the cable, an active extension cable worked for me - a passive cable would not.

Edit: I used this cable, but it does still give me static if I try to use headphones. Otherwise it works great.

u/TheSpartanKing1 · 1 pointr/oculus

You can't have more than a couple feet onto the Rift (not oculus) cords. However on the sensors, I would recommend these cables

u/Vagrant_Charlatan · 1 pointr/Vive

They ship the 3rd and 4th sensors with a 16 foot USB 2.0 extension, but the other two sensors are 3.0 with no JPEG compression. It's hard to notice the difference between 2.0 and 3.0 tracking, but 16 foot active extensions are like $14 on Amazon so you can go all 3.0 if you want.

u/vahdyx · 1 pointr/oculus

I'm not sure myself but I bought

CableCreation Gold (Long 16FT) Super Speed USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable, USB 3.0 Extender USB A-Male to A-Female Cable, 5Meter/16ft, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0179MXKU8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_hxQJyb6BVHBCF

I will let you know if it works on Tuesday along with my PCI-E USB card.

u/MrHazardous · 0 pointsr/oculus

its not an active cable and not usb 2.0. Definitely still need an active extension cable for touch. I tested this one, it works.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179MXKU8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've been testing this, and the speeds seem alright. I have this and a small 2 foot Data USBC-to-USBA3.0 cable. Still charges my quest.

u/hymanator · -1 pointsr/oculus

I made a mistake and bought a passive 10 ft usb 3.0 cable and noticed lag immediately, even though an Oculus admin recommended it a few months ago. Didn't know there were active cables for the same price that I paid for the useless passive one. Thanks for the help!
