I'm having the same problem as everyone else with AMD x570 motherboard ... It wont connect on any rear usb ports. It connects on front port but sound cutting in and out and crashes. HP are you aware of this major unacceptable problem and are you ever going to fix it?

i did that twice and got no help from technical support
i had issues connecting it since the beginning and i never could have it working without any issues since purchase.
it does need me to manually push the Holo device Driver on the device.
and then it keeps installing and uninstalling "USB 2.0 Realtek Audio" as soon as the headset is connected.
even if i use a separate headset ( which is a nonsense an totally unacceptable for a 1000$ CDN device ),
the installation and uninstallation of the audio device keeps bugging even if disabled, uninstalled, ...
my old computer has a B350 chipset, and i don't have these issues.
my reverb G2 is working on my previous computer, so it is not defective or misbehaving.
however, it is a lack of support from HP for a complete generation of hardware.
many months waiting for endless deception is what you get for buying a device in a "prototype"
this issue is ongoing for a year now.
i bought an oculus Quest 2 for less than half the price, it works... and also was available.
i'm thinking about selling my headset to someone else...

I had the same problem with the HP Rverb G2 and my Gigabyte Aorus Elite (X570) motherboard.
The solution is found was to in the BIOS to force the PCIe to GEN 3 (and not leave it at AUTO)
I found it is the video link below

Doesn't work on my board.
Lastest agesa ... Tried all bios. Actually on A91 beta bios AMD Is actually saying the next bios should fix usb glitches. And many say it's a complex issue involving gpu bandwidth... But i can't unsee my oculus quest 2 is working fine and never had a glitch and is working on all usb ports without any specific driver so... It is clearly something that could have been avoided at design level or with a device driver/ firmware
i've seen it already... I even though about installing my ryzen 1700 into my x570 motherboard to disable gen4 from working at the first place... I suspect the setting in bios to not limit the GPU bandwidth correctly or to keep gen3 total bandwidth at gen4 full clock. Causing irregular flow / pauses
For your fix...
Reverb g2 wouldn't even start if i don't use gen3. It entirely crashes within a minute of wmr launch ... So i'm already sacrificing my pci gen4 bandwidth only to see through the lens.. if might be working on some gigaByte or asus. But it's still bugged on my MSI MEG x570 Unify.
Amd is actually anouncing a fix with next agesa.

MSI X570 Tomahawk
I was having sound issues with the G2 bouncing between the headset and the desktop.
I happened to have a Startech USB 3.0 PCIe card PEXUSB3S25 that I used to fix another problem on an old PC.
I installed the PCIe card and drivers and used the USB adaptor that came with the G2.
Initially I got a 7-15 error, so I uninstalled the Startech driver and Windows automatically installed a windows driver.
Bingo, sound is now sorted.
Hope this helps someone.

HP Reverb G2 and Gigabyte Auros Elite (X570) motherboard - my workaround these last months was BIOS setting; PCIE to GEN 3
Now after updating my BIOS (toF33g) which included this improvement (AMD AGESA ComboV2 126.96.36.199 Patch )
No more problems!!!
check your motherboard BIOS updates!

no solution found.
tried Agesa 188.8.131.52 patch A Beta bios for MSI MEG X570 Unify
it did allow the headset to be able to launch with wmr without having to disable PCI-e gen 4 in Bios.
but it doesn't fix the main issue / haing no reliable sound from the headset.
I'm waiting for AGESA 184.108.40.206 full bios, which is supposed to be able to fix the sub USB2 hub from a USB3 stream
another solution would be to use other hardware.

First off Hp Support waste of time..
Asus Prime X570-P
64GB DDR RAM
RTX 2060 Super.
Was bought a G2 Reverb as present from the wife, Would not work, tried everything. Connected to my Intel based laptop no issues so knew it wasn't a dud headset or cable.
Read on a few forums/reddit etc about fitting a powered Pci-e USB card. As I'm based out In Saudi Arabia with work had limited options, so purchased a Yeeliya 3A1C PCI-e card with 4x usb and 1 x Usb c ports and powered of a spare sata cable from the local computer souk.
Installed, checked drivers on device manage, connected headset and bam all working as advertised.
worth giving it a try if your headsets still not working.
