MPower Echelon 2 randomly transmits zero watts

Using the Schwinn MPower Echelon 2 and having sporadic drop out issues. The Echelon reads the correct watts always, but randomly transmits nothing (or zero) to the game.

I’ve tried using an USB extension cable to place the ANT receiver right next to the Echelon with no luck. I’ve turn my cell phone and everything else nearby off. I confirmed its not the ANT receiver as it always picks up my HR readings with no drop outs.

Anyone had lucked eliminating or reducing this?
