Have had a 2-tuner with 1TB hard drive since October 2014 - 5 years and 4 months. Old one works fine. I have liftetime guide. Today, wife decided 4-Tuner would be a good idea. So, my plan would be to keep old Tablo up and running on our network. We would turn off recording and just watch stuff until we had deleted everything. We would add a new 4-tuner Tablo with a new hard drive. Maybe a refurbished. Set it to start recording. Both would be on our network.
Once the old one was mostly empty, maybe I would use it for my shows and the new one would be for wife’s shows. Or old one would be for sports or some other logic like this.
Anyone done something like this and have some insight into things I have not considered?
