I have not had problems. The power meter in the pedals connects to my laptop via the ANT dongle plugin. I run the desktop app on my Windows laptop. Power comes from the pedals into the app on the laptop.
Even that description above makes it seem more complicated than I’ve ever found it to be in practice. It’s always just happened for me basically automatically.
No, I have Wahoo POWRLINK Zero power meter pedals. I use them as the power meter in my TrainerRoad workouts. I could read power from my Zwift Hub trainer, and I have at least once, but generally I prefer to use the same power meter for my inside and outside rides, and thus the pedals rather than the trainer.
I may have not fully understood NJHIKER43’s question.
OK, I just questioned it as the person above was specifically asking about connection of power data from the Hub to the TR app. Your use case with a separate power meter & PowerMatch included is different, and may not address their concerns.
But the other reply above sounds like a direct Hub to TR connection and shows good function, so both bases are now covered
With the Zwift Hub on, I opened up the phone app, then went into ‘devices’. The trainer was there, as was my Assiomas (and my HRM, but that’s beside the q). I selected power match, then started the workout. Simple as you like.
I was able to connect, but how about concurrent to Zwift now? From what I read, you have to sign into Wift and connect via BT, but for TR you then have to use Ant+. Does that work? Of note, my trainer is a Zwift Hub with the Virtual Click shifting. I took my cassette off.
Just chiming in to say that I use TR on my phone via BT, and Zwift on my laptop via ANT+ dongle. You just have to select your trainer as the power source in Zwift, but deselect the resistance option so that TR controls the resistance.
