CABLE is uniquely setup to work with appleTV. Currently appleTV only allows two BLE connections in addition to the remote. If you have three Bluetooth sensors feeding into your fitness application running on appleTV, you will not be able to use all of them. To solve this problem, simply use the ANT+ channel on the dual mode BLE/ANT+ sensors and combine them together using CABLE. CABLE will only consume one BLE connection on the appleTV and provide up to 5 Bluetooth services to appleTV on that one connection.
Make sure to always close the fitness app in appleTV when you are done using it. Keeping your fitness app open can activate CABLE and keep it turned on.
Q: Can CABLE combine ANT+ sensors into single BLE services?
A: Yes, CABLE enables routing of ANT+ profile data into individual or multiple BLE services.
Q: How can I disconnect CABLE from an appleTV application?
A: First, you should check the CABLE unit to see if it has an active BLE connection before trying to disconnect it from a device. If there is not an active connection, there is no reason to disconnect. If the CABLE has an active Bluetooth connection, it will be indicated by the LED flash pattern.
Q: How can I be sure CABLE does not have an active BLE connection?
A: If CABLE does not have an active Bluetooth connection and it is turned on, it will have a single flash of the green LED once per minute.
