Description Artur O. 2014-08-17 03:17:24 UTC
I got a mouse from Logitech (G9x).
I changed the polling rate as per Arch wiki.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mouse_Polling_Rate

Also tried:
sudo modprobe -r usbhid && sudo modprobe usbhid mousepoll=1

cat /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll
returned 1 so it was changing the polling rate.

However testing the actual value using the application (evhz) showed that the mouse was stuck at 125Hz polling rate no matter what setting.

Now this would not be a to big of an issue however using the USB 3.0 port causes issues with Witcher 2 that causes the mouse to behave erratic
Bug (contains video): https://github.com/KillaW0lf04/The-Witcher-2-Issues/issues/48


When I tried to move the mouse to another USB port (2.0) then evhz started showing the correct polling (700-800 and peaking to 1000). The issue in the game with the mouse behaving erratic did also vanish. 


The polling rate issue is not the cause but a symptom of the issue so that's the reason I'm bringing it here. If it should be in a separate bug report please tell.

Any ideas?
Best Regards
Artur O.

That means you are sending html email, please fix up your email client
and try again.

No, gmail will send text-only email, it's just tough to get it to do so,
there's an option somewhere when you are creating an email to do so...

this has happened to me too, I have a Logitech MX518 and a Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force board, and when either xHCI or xHCI handoff options are enabled in the BIOS, the mouse is limited to 127 hz regardless of the mousepoll setting, but when only USB3 (in BIOS) is enabled and both xHCI options are disabled - the polling rate takes effect
