Re: NEO 2 and Balance L/P

If this is a useless metric, perhaps Tacx shouldn't have bothered manufacturing, advertising, and selling a product that measures it. But they did. I'm not asking if you think it has training value - I'm asking if this existing data will be available on other industry standard protocols. I think li...

Re: NEO 2 and Balance L/P

Given the hype over L/R balance, realistically aside from identifying possible fit issues, there is little in the way of practical training methods to correct what is typically the bodies natural asymmetry and only a very small subset of users, those with morphological or physical impediment, who w...

I have try the procedure 4 times without success :(
Did you try pausing and resuming? Did you try downloading the patch and running it manually:

Re: Running TDA with TrainerRoad

Well, I think I need to do a major backtrack on my comments above. The suggestion by Alex and question by Zouf stimulated my curiosity, so I did a few experiments with my Flow Smart on TDA. The first test was disabling all of the functions on the brake. I still had separate speed, cadence and power ...

well, I did read this thread but I don`t see what you meant.
The problem is for some users the file download stalls and has to be paused and then resumed in order to complete it.

Re: Running TDA with TrainerRoad

It is an error message. As I recall earlier during testing, when I got it, a workout would not run. I have not received it in a long time and am not sure how to test to see if a workout will run with this message present.

Re: Running TDA with TrainerRoad

The ironic thing is that it would be an argument (for me at least) to subscribe to TDA if I could do that. There are quite a few Zwift users running other apps in parallel. More ways of using the app equals more revenue. It would seem that way if you saw yourself in the software business. As said b...

Re: Cadence and Sensor problems

I use a Wahoo Bluetooth/ANT+ combo speed/cadence sensor with TDA and other programs like TTS4 without any problem. I know others who use the similar Tacx sensor as well. This sensor provides better cadence accuracy and response on our tandem and also enables my wife to have a separate Garmin Edge 50...

Re: Strava Upload and Login not working in 4.22.7

It's good that Alex posted this information and link. Please note that the auto-update function in TTS4 has had a bug for at least a year. Downloads will stall when they are about 99% complete. The only way to continue the download is to pause (not cancel) the update and then hit the resume button. ...

Re: Running TDA with TrainerRoad

But it's quite possible that the app developers created the (unnecessary) restriction that the app must control the brake. I have never tried your experiment, but I would be extremely surprised if it worked. I think this restriction is quite deliberate. Tacx is mostly a hardware company that create...

Re: Running TDA with TrainerRoad

In general, Tacx trainers can be used on anyone's software (providing the software can talk to the trainer). But in order to use TDA, you must have a Tacx Smart trainer paired to the PC using Bluetooth. If you are not controlling at least the brake function of a Tacx Smart trainer brake in TDA, then...

Re: Big fluctuations in gradient in GPX rides

Thanks for your reply. The reason I ask is I had no problem at all with the gradient smoothing via 3D routebuilder in TTS4, but I am getting this problem with the App. The gradient does change as a result of the smoothing changes in 3Droutebuilder as I can see the elevations change in the line abov...

Re: Strava Upload and Login not working in 4.22.7

I am glad you are happy, Alex. We'll just have to wait and see. Speaking of inductive reasoning, the history of TTS4 is at least 2 to 3 updates per year, which are mostly released to fix problems, particularly in the lst two years. Some of the problems are minor and result in some loss of functional...

This is not a personal attack. (In the wording of the rules you quote, my comments do not "delve into personal matters" about you.) This is a major difference of opinion between us on this issue. A difference of opinion is not a personal attack nor is it an insult, nor is it intended to be. I think ...

Don't worry, if TTS4 is not now broken, it will be. Past history has already taught us that. The difference is after March 31 and in spite of what Alex thinks, there will be no one to fix it.

Re: Compatibility of smart trainers with TTS3

I don't think so. If you are suggesting that firmware designed for a non-Bluetooth device be installed in a Bluetooth-capable device, then you are asking to make a brick out of it. That would be a reckless experiment. You just forgot. This has already been successfully verified by users in practice...

It is extremely rare for any completed ride data to be lost, but sometimes it can be slow, the reasons for which I do not fully understand. If for some reason, the upload did not get started before you turned off your Mac, it may require that you start your computer and program again, but it should ...
