    When I first fire up my PC, my Samsung Odyssey+ headset is never detected when I try opening "Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR". I have to reboot the PC and then it works fine.

    Is there some reason this is happening and how can I fix it? It's not a major headache, but is still an annoyance.

    Thanks!

    Are you using HDMI or USB extension cables when connecting HMD Odyssey+ to your PC?

    I'm using an extension cable for HDMI, but not for USB.

    You may need to either get rid of the extension HDMI cable or find another shorter (better) one. Odyssey is extremely finicky about extension cables. Try plugging in directly to see if the problem goes away.
