I can connect with my bike trainer (Tacx Flow Smart) using ANTWarell if I input the relevant channel ID data but I cannot get a connection when using pairing and with channel ID data all set to 0. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

Can you give more detail for what you mean by "using pairing"? If you are referring to the "Pairing" checkbox, then this is your issue. This translates to the pairing bit (bit 7 of the device type). This bit is not used by the FE profile. When checked, ANTWareII will only connect to devices broadcasting device type 145 (0x91). Therefore it will not find your trainer.

I recommend using SimulANT+ to connect to your trainer instead for most purposes.

Yes I was checking the 'pairing' box. Thank you for your help.
