Zwift crashing on startup [AppleTV] [1.30] [October 2022] [SOLVED]

Apple TV HD

I clicked on the number. Thanks for the tip.

@shooj It’s starting to look like we’ve got a problem specific to the HD model of Apple TV and 1.30.

they need your log from the ATV

I’m struggling to find analytics in the settings…

Atv 4k just updated and done 50min workout no probs here

I think it’s ATV’s settings not Zwift if that helps

Yep found it under general - privacy… problem is I can only share it via Airdrop… unfortunately I dont have any other apple devices to share it with then e mail… apologies I’m new at this had Zwift for 11 months and it’s been flawless up until this issue…thanks anyway

After updating on my ATV, Zwift will not run. It tries to load (I get the light blue loading screen) but after about 30 seconds the app crashes. I’ve tried restarting ATV but I still can’t get Zwift to run. My ATV software is up to date. :frowning:

Have you tried this process?

  1. Uninstall Zwift app
  2. Reboot Apple TV
  3. Reinstall Zwift app

See Zwift crashing on startup [AppleTV] [1.30] [October 2022]

I’ll try later when I get home if no one gets it before me.

I’ve loaded latest version to ATV and now it won’t load. Get the blue loading screen then it just crashes and goes back to ATV home screen. Updated ready for tonight’s ZRL and had to race it on an iPhone instead.

Same boat here. Apple TV, updated Zwift and now crashes back to Home Screen when trying to launch Zwift.

Looks like a wide spread issue.

Alternate (and terrible) solution: Get an ATV 4K. :wink:
