We have seen and are actively looking into multiple reports of Ryzen incompatibility with Vive Wireless Adapter. Our current data shows this is occurring with a subset of Ryzen-based PCs. Our investigation will take time as we are working with multiple component manufacturers to identify the root cause.
We will update the community as we learn more.
In the near term, we are updating our specifications to show that certain Ryzen PCs have a compatibility issue.
In addition, starting, 11/19, our customer service agents will honor Ryzen-related returns from our retail partners and vive.com outside of typical return windows. Please see instructions below.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate the issue.
Customer Return Process
For refund eligibility and processing please get in touch with our Customer Support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a response with instructions and next steps within one business day. To ensure proper processing we will request the following:
Once the validation step is complete we will provide you with a shipping label with instructions to return your wireless adapter. Once the unit is confirmed received we will process the refund and notify customers of the completed process.

After reinstalled my Windows, updated graphics driver (geforce driver 416.94), and installed the software in this order:
Also updated to the latest SteamVR Beta (1.1.1), I haven't had any BSOD or hard crash, which occured every 5-10 minutes before. This is only one session, need more testing.
Here's my specs:

"In the near term, we are updating our specifications to show that certain Ryzen PCs have a compatibility issue."
Has this been posted somewhere?

At this time we recommend a return. We do not have an ETA for resolution and we cannot promise we will be offering the return/refund exception forever.

Forgive me for being rude that that is absolutly unacceptable.
I built my computer SPECIFICALLY for wireless VR. I don't know what went wrong but we deserve some information.
1. Is the company actively persuing a solution, or have you given up?
2. Will you at least publish a list of the affected motherboards? This would at least allow people to build machines that avoid this conflict.
Please, any information you can give.

Coudn't help but notice a firmware update for the headset today. There doesn't seem to be any way to read a changelog though.
Any information you can share?

I would like to let you know that after having ALL of the problems listed about this (Lockups, BSODs, poor performance) I found something that fixed all my issues.
I went to www.displaylink.com and downloaded the Nov 18th reference drivers from them and installed them.
My system has been stable without any extra "BIOS" modifications since. Before it was crashing everytime I was trying to load anything.
Just wanted to give a heads up on this one. Hopefully it helps someone.
