Wired-Cadence Sensor Kit not working

Dear Direto & DiretoX users,

I got the wired-Cadence sensor kit from Elite shop and it arrived today. When I connect it to the trainer it does not recognize the sensor. How do I know if the cadence data is being read from the magnet and not "calculated".

When I go to Elite App to configure the Trainer I don't see any cadense sensor number. Have I wasted my money?

The wired sensor doesn't need to be paired in the software. It is not a wireless sensor.
When it is connected, the trainer acknowledge it and stop using the sensorless cadence, reading the data from the sensor instead.

In regards to zwift 'super tuck', where the Direto takes ages to get to the 'super tuck'..... will the wired cadence be what Zwift reads, meaning the 'super tuck' should be more quicky accessible because the cadence readign will drop faster/immediately?

I ask because I just bought the cadence sensor for pedal analysis, but 'super tuck' would be an added bonus.

I'm also confused here, I just bought and installed the Elite cadence sensor. In the elite app, when I stop pedalling it takes 5-10 seconds for the cadence to drop and return to zero..... so like the opening post, why is this and how do you know how the Direto is measuring cadence to ensure it is from the wired cadence sensor.... if it takes 5-10 seconds to drop post-stopping pedalling then it can't be reading from the cadence sensor.
