Re: TDA slow, film download incredibley slow

For me it is not the download speed, but sometimes (last week) the waiting for ages to get the list of the films, even if I only tick the films already downloaded. But generally speaking I'm happy with the value for money I agree with all you say in your post :wink: I download during the night and ...

Cheers, for prompt reply. didn't fancy buying a bike. But today, no clicking! Problem gone, and never changed a thing. Very weird.
Reckon it was my Neo,s way of asking for a new bike.
Whatever my Neo wants it gets. :wink:

Do you ever get this fixed? I have the same issue.



Replaced Turbo bike from 2011 Specialized Allez to 2017 Giant Contend SL.
Seems like some older bikes do not work through the gears smoothly no matter what you do.
Trainer is now silent and works perfectly through all gears :D

Re: Heartrate connection.

For I pad Air 2 you need the Apple lightning adapter and the Wahoo Ant stick.
I could also use one of my Polar Heartrate watches to see my heartrate
and average heartrate on completion. :wink:

Re: Heartrate connection.

The I pad air 2 is not Ant+ capable.
Looks like there are 2 options here-
Tacx micro USB Ant+ dongle.
Micro USB to USB cable with Tacx USB T2018 .
Could I buy a cheap cable then use my T2018 dongle?

Heartrate connection.

My Ant+ Garmin heartrate monitor connects in TTS4 no problem.
However although Trainer/I pad connects via Bluetooth in the Cycling app.
I am not sure if I need Bluetooth heartrate monitor or
a USB for I-pad Air 2 to be able to see my heartrate with the other training info boxes.

Re: Neo Smart - Firmware Problem and then Failure

Turn I pad Bluetooth off.Turn iPad off,
Then turn I pad and Bluetooth back on.
Turn Neo off then back on at the mains.
Now seach for device and upgrade with the Utility App.
Hope this works for your Neo.

Re: Gearing problems

Getting the cassette on took ages.What do you mean by 2 different ways? Tacx say the ECDO might be damaged.I have sent it back for replacement but do not want the same thing happening again.Thinking of going up to Ultegra with this one.

Re: Gearing problems

I have been altering the high and low screws on the derailed.I can now go into the smaller socket of cassette.Still not 100% smooth and skipping some gears and clicking on others.Any suggestions on how to fine tune it to get it running smooth .

Re: Legacy Bushido can't be calibrated with TTS 4.14 !!!

I only use the TTS for RLVS ,these work perfectly on the grades.I spend 9 hours a week on these so i know the feel of the brake even without the calibration. Never used the catalyst mode as my interval ,speed training is done with sufferfiest DVDs and although you can use the catalyst mode to do Suf...

Re: Legacy Bushido can't be calibrated with TTS 4.14 !!!

This is why for everyone the value is considered "good" between 10 and 15. For every user this could be different. For you it seems 10-11 is very good. Great :) but for someone else it could be 13 ;-) So the value will most likely be kept at 10-15 but it might have to be more clear that ANYTHING in ...
