Re: the cloud has lost my purchase

Thanks Lunatix. Great that bugs have been fixed. My question is why isn't this information posted out in the big wide world so that those who have purchased this ride know that it is temporarily out of action. I spent AGES trying to find it, including uninstalling the app and reinstalling and by doi...

Re: the cloud has lost my purchase

I had a sudden brain wave - maybe the ride has been hidden. When you go into APPS in settings, under miscellaneous, it shows that there are files there, taking up space, but says there are no files to view. So I download a 3rd party app called Astro and was able to follow the file path to the movies...

Vortex trainer making loud screeching sound

Hi there. I have just bought a new Vortex trainer. I did 3 very nice rides, then yesterday I was halfway through the Tony Martin ride and the brake went on and it made a very loud screeching noise which did not let up, even when the gradient was downhill. The noise continued for the rest of the ride...

Can anyone help me...I have just bought a vortex trainer, a 16GB Samsung Tab A, a super fast 128GB micro SD card, and the android dongle (not to mention new turbo tyre and tacx chest strap for the ANT dongle). I am very disappointed to read that it's not possible to use the SD card in the tablet as ...

Sirius Trainer replacement cable part number

Hi there, I have a Tacx Sirius Cycleforce Soft Gel trainer - and the friction cable has snapped. I have gone onto the Tacx website to find the replacement part number, and there doesn't seem to be one. There is a part number for the knob and the lever, but not the cable. Is this sold separately or a...

Hi mcorn, You are a diamond! The one stop shop for Tacx questions...in response, he (my fella) has a Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Home Trainer (red) tyre fitted, and this is the info from their website below - which would suggest the tyre should be OK. Will put more pressure in the tyre as you suggest. The ...

I have got the answer - thanks to Tacx support. I have cut and pasted their reply below. In the end it was the desktop graphic that was the culprit for me. I have gone to the "basic" one and now my RLV works perfectly every time. Tacx advice below: Best is to remove the old one first and then reinta...

black scrren on RLV and Windows 7

Hi Folks, I'm after some advice please. My problem is this: Whenever I start any RLV, all I get is a black screen. I do get the graphics with the countdown, the bar along the bottom with the race duration bar, and the heart rate, speed etc top left and right of screen - just no video. I know that th...

I also forgot to say that I'm sure it can't be cleanly uninstalling because every tie I re install, the times that I can open the software, shows all of my rides that I have done, and my name and my partners name. Surely if it was cleanly uninstalled, all of our information would have been cleared o...

I also am having problems. I have had a 32 bit windows 7 system built to the Tacx specification. I installed the 2.0.2 disc I have and everything worked fantastically 1st time except the real life video. I thought it was just me. In the end I thought maybe it hadn't installed properly. So I uninstal...

Thanks for your reply. I thought my issue was with the USB interface head and what it will work with, rather than the software. So thanks for that. Do you know the answer to this: what is the difference between TTS and Fortius software? Also, I have a question regarding graphics cards - maybe you kn...

32/64 bit compatabilty software, hardware and USB interface

Help! I have bought a second hand trainer and need to buy a computer to run it. Does anybody know if the combination of a 2009 Imagic T1900, with the USB interface T1904 (white front cover with green surrounds and back), and Fortius Software 2.02 will work smoothly and hassle free on a 64 bit system...
