I’m presented with an “Update Tablo” again, and the screen warns, “Updating Tablo may cancel recordings that are in progress or about to start.”
WHY doesn’t it either have a flag I can choose in “settings” to update at 4am IF no recordings are ongoing, or else display on this screen what is being recorded or about to start so I know whether this is a good time to do the update?
For more than a month now, Tablo will load a desired recording, and then the screen freezes, and the timer on the left side rapidly “fast-forwards” in time though nothing is changing on the screen. Hitting the pause stops, but when I hit play again it resumes spooling up. Using the return usually works to get out, but going back in results in the same lack of playing w/fastforward of the progress bar. The workaround is usually to repeatedly hit the backup/reverse repeatedly, and eventually I get to a place where Tablo will finally initiate playback properly. Usually. Sometimes, HOME is the only solution. (bail out completely and then come back in)
Is this happening to anyone else?
And for many months, the indicator (blue ball) does not always accurately indicate whether I’ve watched part or all of a show. I also can watch 3 or 10 minutes of a recording, exit, and when I return, it does not offer to resume at the point in time of exit. Or, it does. I can’t identify what the trigger/condition is.
Does this happen to anyone else?
I am really frustrated when I record something, and discover during playback that programming ran long and instead of an hour’s worth, I have only 30 minutes’ worth.
Look. I have a 5 TB drive. I can afford easily to set EVERY program I want to record an hour extra (which I could choose to do with other DVRs) so that I don’t get shafted because of a news breaking, a sports game running long and rippling delays into ALL subsequent shows on that channel!!, or well, whatever.
This is simply beyond comprehension that Tablo cannot enable a “+variable” for each recording as it is setup, so that I can choose 30min/60min/2hrs to extend a recording.
Does anybody else miss this feature common to other DVRs for oh, a DECADE or more?
Why does the grid display of coming programs only show about 23 hours, when the data is clearly stored in Tablo for much longer, if you only know the name to search for under “sports”, “TV Shows”, “Movies”, etc…?
