Re: Rattling Genius repaired or replaced under warranty

So my Genius has developed the dreaded rattly roller after about 800 miles and has now gone back to Wiggle under warranty (it's about 22 months old but still seems to be covered by Wiggle). They've inspected it and have now sent it on to Tacx for repair. As a general rule, would anyone know if am I...

Has anyone else who’s emailed TacX support heard much back yet? It’s getting cold here so I was hoping for at least a quick fix for Apple iOS users

BTW, do you know where the videos are stored on a mac desktop machine where would they reside Sorry, I am not a Mac person. There are other discussions of this issue on this forum.

Re: Satori Smart Calibration Issues

Also, what are the consequences of using the bike when it is not properly calibrated? The purpose of calibration is to try to make your speed and power numbers as accurate as possible. There is nothing magic about the red and green zone, but if the roller is too loose you will generate heat and too...

Re: Mac desktop issues please assist... 4 issues

That is somewhat slower than I get in the US. I have a 200 Mbps connection, but typical download speeds for a single video for me are much less than that. And the more videos you download at one time, the slower each one gets, although I often download 3 at a time and just walk away from the compute...

Re: TTS4 on WIndows 10

TTS turned into somewhat of an unwieldy mess in terms of its various functions and required a lot of maintenance and updates, even aside from what Windows forces software sellers to do when Windows is updated by Microsoft. Due to licensing omissions and the way the various versions of TTS evolved, T...

Re: Gearing problems

I don't have a Neo, but in general the Neo itself should not affect shifting once the derailleur is properly adjusted to the cassette. Many shifting issues occur when someone has a mismatch between the shifters and the cassette (e.g., trying to use 9-speed shifters with a 10-speed cassette). Putting...

Re: Questions on subscription model

As bike trainer usage is, for some of us, a seasonal activity, it would be useful to know the subscription policy regarding payment/account suspension and reactivation. Does TDA subs allow the user to suspend the payments and app availability for a few months and then return back with previous data...

Re: 720p videos

My projector is hd not full hd That is likely a contributing source of quality issues. If your projector is 720p/1080i, then an HD (1080P) may not show much improvement, but I would still give it try to see what happens. If you have a 16:10 projector (1280×800, 1440×900, etc.), then you might get s...

Re: Choppy playback

Interesting, thank you for your guidance. I never thought of that. I'll download one these & give it a try. Do the film descriptions in TDA mention filmed with Bertha? I want to only download those if it's the case. I'll start with the ones you mentioned. Thanks again! Really appreciate your help. ...

Thanks. I was slightly 'hoping' that a newer version had come along, but will backup the existing files, try this, and see what happens. Best Wishes Alex does a great job of finding these files. My main reservation is that you be sure that this set of VR files all have the same version numbers as t...

You have 2 numbers showing which is odd. If the user has two Genius, then there is nothing odd. and was my previous trainer, which has been replaced by the bottom one Thanks.

Wanted to just re-install the VR component to see if that would fix it. No way to do that as far as I kn...

Re: TDA only detects speed, power and cadence, but no trainer

What is the ID number of your Genius. You have 2 numbers showing which is odd. Anyway, you need to click the select all button for the number that corresponds to your Genius.

If this does not resolve the problem, send an email to support@tacx.com and explain the problem.
