Title firmly tongue in cheek but with a grain of truth.
I see SO MANY posts describing an inability for Zwift to see a trainer or control it correctly.
Well, yesterday, it happened to me.
I normally Zwift using a dedicated AppleTV4K in my office/pain-cave (Tacx NEO2T, Polar H10 HRM) but had been experimenting with other devices recently - Win11 laptop with an ANT+ dongle, iPad connected via Bluetooth.
I tried to connect to my trainer as usual but the NEO2T wasn’t visible to Zwift on the AppleTV. Reboot AppleTV, power-cycle the trainer - still nothing.
On a lark, I walk down the hall, pull the ANT+ dongle from the USB port on my PC, and shut the iPad off.
(NOTE: Neither of these devices had Zwift running in the foreground or background and all pairing was done through the Zwift app, not in device BLE pairing)
Shuffle back down the hall - yup, Zwift on the Apple TV now sees my trainer.
I will try not to get snarky with “Zwift doesn’t see my trainer" posts but I am ABSOLUTELY going to assume you have something else connected - even if you THINK you don’t.
Thank you for attending my TedTalk. Please exit through the gift shop.
