I just got a new Reverb G2 today.
When I first plugged it in, it seemed to be fine. I definitely got a v1 cable, though, despite it being new and ordered just last week. But I did order it one day before the “everyone gets a v2 cable” deal. I bought direct from HP, so I thought it was odd that I didn’t get one.
After setting it up and getting into MSFS2020, I started getting audio issues and lockups.
I probably could benefit from a v2 cable.
However, I did solve my problem. My mobo has a USB setting that allows me to add an extra 0.1, 0.2, or 0.3 volts to the USB3 ports. Turning it up to 0.3 volts (the first one I tried) allowed me to fly around with zero issues.
I don’t want to burn out my headset by overloading my USB voltage, so I will probably contact HP support and ask for a v2 cable.
At the very least, I’ll be able to fly while I wait for the v2 cable.
Just wanted to add that this is a significant upgrade over the Oculus Rift CV1 I used to use. What a difference! I’m very much GPU limited now (RTX2060XCUltra), so lots of room to grow.
