I had several issues that many of you are also facing using the HP Reverb G2 : black screens, usb connection/deconnction of the headset or other devices (i’m using honeycomb alha yoke + logitech usb saitek throttle + logitech rudder pedals), or audio failures …
I’m running on AMD Ryzen 7 + RTX 3070. After having updated anything possible on my system (even the Motherboard and each devices), i wanted to update the firmware of the hp reverb G2. So I have downloaded the latest firmware update (sp113237) that you can find here : HP Reverb G2 Virtual Reality Headset Software and Driver Downloads | HP® Customer Support
This firmware is supposed to resolve a potential issue where displays may flicker or go black when playing certain titles at high volume levels (such as FS2020).
Unfortunatly, I could not been able to run it. The utility never worked for me. After more investigations, it seems that this firmware update is not working with AMD procs. (and it is not said by HP or by the utility itself).
BUT, there is another way to solve all the issues that we are facing with the HP Reverb G2 as it seems that all comes from the Headset cable ! A revision 2 of the cable has been released by HP and you can ask for a replacement of your V1 cable by this new V2 cable (this is free of charge if your G2 is still under warrantly and if you are running with AMD).
This V2 cable seems to solve everything !
I called the HP support (go on the website and search for the call number corresponding to your country) and they have sent me this new V2 cable free of charge
In any case, either you are running with AMD or not, if you are using your headset with a V1 cable, I hardly reccomend you to ask for a replacement to get a V2 cable (released approximatly 2 or 3 months ago).
I hope this will be helpful for you guys.
