Continuing the discussion from Recent Companion App/Apple TV bluetooth problems connecting:
I use the following equipment just to make things clear.
Wahoo Kicker 2
First off i noticed that there is a drop of cadence which showed simultaniously on Zwift on my TV on Apple Tv4 and on Zwift companion on my Apple Iphone 8 plus.
This never happened before.
The next thing that happened the Zwift also seemed to loose the EGR, suddenly pedaling becomes very hard and or you pedal easy, but the Avatar is just spinning like crazy and going nowhere.
My equipment with Zwift worked perfectly before, and as of this morning a battle to start to Apple Tv4 and Zwift Companion to connect.
I have simular problems as discussed before by other users loosing connection or trying to connect.
It seems to me that the culprit is the Zwift companion.
I have tried everything,deleting all the apps ,reinstalling,switching everithing off and on again (Wahoo Kickr,Apple tv4), changed the batteries on the Wahoo cadence and the Wahoo kickr heartrate.
But to no avail.
I realised it is not on the Wahoo side where the problem was.
I then tried out different variations first connect the Wahoo Kickr and the Wahoo cadence on the Apple Tv4 and then using the Zwift Companion to connect the Wahoo Tickr heartrate.
The Apple tv4 as we know only connects 2 bluetooth apps, and then request to connect the 3rd app via the Zwift Companion app.
That is what i did, but it did not pick up the Wahoo Tickr heart rate and just searches and if you click on the top right of the Zwift Companion bluetooth icon it cannot find the Wahoo Tickr.
In the settings of the Iphone under bluetooth the wahoo tickr is connected.
So now i connected first on Zwift on the apple Tv4 the Wahoo kicr and also the Wahoo tickr heartrate which it connected and then on the Zwift companion i connected the Wahoo cadence, which instanly also connected.
The problem now was on Zwift when you ride power,cadence and heartrate showed, but because it seems that the Apple tv4 is not connected to the cadence the EGR info required is missing and the same problem arrise by pedaling becomes very heavy while the avatar is standing still or pedaling becomes with now force , you just spin and the avatar just stands still or hardly moves .
I have also experienced that you cannot calibrate spindown on the apple tv4 like this, but if i use just Zwift on my Ipad which then are able to connect all the wahoo apps the kickr,the cadence and the tickr heartrate the calibration spindown works and evering else as well.
