HP Pro x2 612 G2 Brand New, accelerometer / gyro doesn't work. No auto-rotate or app support

HP Pro x2 612 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After fresh install of Windows 10 on the new HP Pro x2 612 G2, including all posted/latest drivers, I have no gyro / accelerometer capabilities on this when the keyboard is detached. I have modified the registry so that the SensorPresent and Enabled fields are correctly set in the AutoRotation setting, and I do see the RotationLock field in the display settings... But even with the rotation lock disabled, there is no rotation. I loaded a game to see if the accelerometer was working  in other apps... it was not. On a few occassions I can turn the tablet sideways and load a magazine app while sideways, and the app with orient itself correctly. So it seems the accelerometer hardware is there and something can read it. 

 

Maybe the driver is buggy (the tablet model is very new), but you can imagine the difficult of having a hyrbid device that can't rotate. Please correct this...

Also note that the only driver I see for the sensors is the Intel Sensor Hub. I haven't seen the multi-sensor enabling driver that HP has for other tablets. Is this needed?
