HP Reverb & USB 3.1

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if the HP Reverb works OK with USB 3.1 ports on a motherboard. The reason I ask is that on the Oculus Rift S forms there are numerous posts saying that the Rift S doues not work with USB 3.1 and you should use an addon PCIe USB 3.0 card. So I wondered if that was the case with the Reverb.

Yes I thought that but the reason I ask is that I have just tried 2 HP Reverb's on my machine which only has USB 2 and USB 3.1 ports and neither of them worked. Both were the v2 models and both had the black screen issues so, having read about problems with some Rift S units requiring USB 3.0 not 3.1 I was wondering if it was the same with the Reverb.

Thanks

I wonder if HP Reverb draws power from the USB port. If that's the case, the motherboard USB may not able to feed enough power.

Did you try it on ASUS P8P67 Pro? What is the black screen issue? Goes black once for a while?

Check this out, not the same issue as yours but switching to a powered USB hub worked in this case.

After  15 mins use the screens went black. Tried them on Asus Maximus Hero X then Hero VIII motherboards with the same results. Since tried an Oculus Rift S and that worked fine, although I did prefer the Reverb for comfort.

I have standard USB 3.1 Mainboard connectors and working since september with the Reverb 2.0 without any problems.
