I’m running Catalina and just dialogued with TR support re: upgrading to Big Sur. The upgrade process sounds smooth (and much better than my Mohave → Catalina experience). I’ve checked with WKO5 and it seems that they support Catalina and now Monterey as well. So questions for you:
Are your running TR, WC, and WKO5 on Monterey?
Was the the upgrade process smooth?
Is all running smoothly now? [or did you need to code some workarounds?]
I should have been more clear: the challenge I had was not with the TR app, but with WC (it is/was an old 32 bit app and didn’t run transparently on 64 bit OS machines.) Support instructions didn’t work for me, but they walked me through the process successfully.
I Zwifted this morning, and ran the log through Zwift analyzer and it reported no connections through ANT+, all devices/sensors connected with Bluetooth with no drops, no fumbles, a solid Bluetooth connection.
So, TR just doesn’t want to connect via BT at all…
Of course, but I can’t deny the possibility that someone who has faced this issue might have the solution. I haven’t heard from TR support yet, so just trying to get to a good place and get this solved.
did you clean-up all the TR configs and stored data under the Library directory in your home account? If not, and that’s not easy for you to do, another quick-and-dirty test is to create a test user and try using TR under that account.
Is this with TR running? Quit TR and see if those still show up, and are “blue”/connected. If they’re (blue or not blue), disconnect them from the BT settings of the mac. The blue should only be there if an app is open and connected to the trainer/equipment, and on my systems the trainer is not in the BT device list unless it’s paired (won’t even show up as a prior device). Otherwise the trainer should not be in the list.
Not ‘too geeky’ at all. I knew what you were talking about, I just ran into the ‘macOS hides everything’, and just got lazy with Zwifting and playing with FulGaz. This issue was a problem, but on a scale that was easy to ignore. (I was a programmer for decades, and used to chuckle at my uni prof’s statement that ‘programmers are lazy’, and that is somewhat true. TR ‘was working’, if the wife didn’t use the microwave)
