Have a 2nd HD I wish to add to Tablo. Plugged it in but does not get recognized. Any particular steps that need to be taken.
Tablo has 2 USB ports, but only 1 of them can be used for a recognized hard drive.The other is a spare.
Ok thanks. Had saw a old topic from back in 2014 where Tablo said it was a future enhancement, guess they really meant the future.
And they since then removed the size limitation on the drive that could be connected, so I don't expect support for a second drive to ever be implemented.
Then what can I use the second USB port for?
Power a fan, light, ...Charge your cell phone, ...
Charging your phone or tablet haha
I use it to power an inline Antenna signal amp / booster.
Pretty much nothing useful.
Considering the issues people get when the power brick is unable to supply enough voltage to power the tablo, I wouldn't want to draw any more power from it then what I need too.
After they enabled larger drives, using 2nd is off the radar
I use mine for a small USB fan to keep the tablo cool.
