Anyone move the calibration on there Direto to match their PM numbers? Trying to think of a work around?

Not sure how many points id have to move it down to equal out the 20-25 watt difference?

Ima having same problem as others. Direto is showing to low wattage output. Yesterdays ride: Direto 217W, Stages 239W. It's really annoying coz I used my previous trainer also for Zwift races, but with Direto I'm mostly not even able to hold a wheel. :evil:
I already calibrated Direto few times, but problem persists. Idea mentioned above would be perfect. If we could somehow manipulate with calibration values we could ger proper numbers out of it.

Same issue here - i've noticed it after a period of spring/summer time when i was not using Direto. I see some "correlation though - in ERG mode it starts to (more or less - taking in account power smoothness on 2 different dash units) catch-up with stages after 10-15mins of riding. Stages is pretty accurate - almost no difference comparing to lab trainer. BTW - i've compared it on 2 bikes connected to the trainer where i have 2 different stages PMs. When i am doing one leg drills - it's a bit too much off as well (e.g. stages/unit multiplies the value by 2 and Direto reads real power) which tells me there is some issue with direto.

My Elite Direto isn't holding resistance period, on Zwift or The elite App. It seems many people have had the same issue. Is this the only $900 trainer that has these issues? With Wahoo, Powertap, or the others do you have to mess with calibration or belts etc?
