I think you can run Zwift on AppleTV (know two people who set-up their smart trainers this way). Not sure if an intermediary device is needed though.

Alternatively, using a device that runs Zwift Companion app (either a phone or a tablet) would also allow one to use a smart trainer on Windows by utilizing the Bluetooth connectivity of the smart trainer (the Zwift Companion app effectively serving as a bridge)

Bluetooth is a complete crapshoot on Windows. One can try pairing directly on Windows to a Bluetooth trainer, but at least I haven't been able to get it to work (whereas the two other methods consistently work).

One can choose to lay the blame on the actual culprit (Microsoft) or those not directly responsible for the mess (Zwift, Saris, etc.). Unfortunately, post 11383 went for the latter (and ultimately incorrect culprit). If you go through that thread, you'll see that the author of post 11383 basically rage quit: took him less than 1.5 hours from making the post to deciding that he's returning the trainer.

Well, let's also be honest. Saris says it's Windows compatible when it truly isn't without jumping through a lot of hoops. If a product is advertised as Bluetooth and windows compliant then I guess it's silly of me to expect it to actually work that way, LOL! I mean for sure when I was developing products for military use you better believe if the specs stated a certain capability that capability was there without add on software or devices. Not to mention, fully detailed instructions for all abilities of the device. My decision to purchase was based on their stated specs, not on having to go through other multiple devices and/or software packages to make it work.

And the post isn't a true timeline of working to get it going. I had been working it awhile before ever making the post. But yeah, I do tend to rage sometimes. :p

If I remember correctly, the final straw that had me start the post was finding out you couldn't get any customer support online after my normal work hours and that googling around a lot online for solutions showed everyone saying their tech support was pretty bad and just to go to various facebooks pages and such to maybe find a solution. Now me, I'd rather be riding than fighting tech. So yeah, I returned it and have been blissfully riding on my rollers just fine. :banana:

Oh, and looking at my old rant for fun your suggestion actually got me the closest to it working. But I still couldn't actually control it. It's been too long to remember for sure but I think it was like the options weren't enabled or something. But I doubt I said thanks back then and I should have. So thanks! :)

And another edit... for fun. I'm a pretty non violent guy but there's too people I would flat out punch in the face if I met them. One would be Bill Gates just on principal since pretty much every microsoft "upgrade" really isn't. The other would be any, and I mean any, local weatherman. I would clean knock them on their butt for constantly lying to me all these years! ;)

No worries, I mean it obviously can work. I just took the bluetooth and windows compatibility at face value and figured there'd be no problem controlling it with my laptop. When that failed and then the phone app only partially worked I was done. Did not want to have to buy a bunch of other tech devices I had no need for to run a "smart" trainer that wasn't as smart as Saris said, LOL!

I'm an old geezer that doesn't live on his cellphone, doesn't live with a tablet or Apple this or that. Heck, I don't even rush out every year and get the lastest and greatest smartphone. I'm sure if I was one of those people this all would have been a non issue.

I recently switched from an Alienware (passed on to my son) to Apple TV 4K. Seems to work fine with my Zwift setup. Main thing I miss is multitasking while in Zwift; Netflix, YouTube, SiriusXM, etc. in another window.

The graphics are pretty decent and the smoothness of the game is great.

Main thing to remember is it is a Bluetooth setup and up to three connected devices.
