All Tablo screens and filters OR most Tablo screens and features

#1

I was looking over Tablo Apps & Compatible Devices, part trying to find some info to help someone, then just trying to figure things out.

I realize not all device are created equal. The marketing terminology is vague and truly pointless if there is no reference. Not equally comparing devices/apps doesn’t actually provide answers. I realize that’s can be what marketing is.

Eventually, here’s my question. Many devices have as Benefit:

Access to all Tablo screens and filters including settings

Other device apparently not having all these had Benefits:

Access to most Tablo screens and features

Most unknown screens… resulting in only most features? Which? (most is valueless term)

Searching support.tablotv.com for “Tablo screens and filters” I get 120 useless results. Searching www.tablotv.com/support/ 290 Main Website Results, none of the top 3 had anything helpful.

I’m asking this… so I know about screens and filter when I ask help and support why my Scheduled Tab doesn’t have Upcoming filter so many have mentioned. The compatibility page states the web app is optimized for Chrome and has access to all Tablo screens and filters. I’d like to get my to work as advertised.

Oh well.
Even though the tablo user survey seems to have always ask to rank the importance of having all filters/features in all apps, you have now just discovered why.

I’m sorry for opening your feature parity issue, albeit valid.

I was just asking for a reference to “all tablo screens and filters”. They do seem to highlight the “big” things an app/device is missing.

I guess saying you get all filters or most features… because they lost track :man_shrugging: :neutral_face:

@TabloTV where can I find reference information about all tablo screen that are mentioned throughout the Tablo Apps & Compatible Devices. I’ve tried your search facilities and barely found found vague results.

I’ve read through your Tablo FAQs, a couple times you mention free TV… watch, record, stream free TV. Yet never mention that you’ll have to pay for internet assess to do this. Yes, you say internet is needed - “to download data…”

Tablo uses free and open software, certainly Nuvyyo understands the difference - free vs restrictive be it copyright or cost.

The OTA TV signal is free, but you need an antenna to receive the signal so there are costs to everything. Nothing is free, even your TV has a cost to it.

Not even freedom.

That’s a one-time equipment cost - you couldn’t watch OTA without an equipped television.

I don’t quite see your parallels with non-restriction of being “free and open” vs infringing a fee constraints to buying basic equipment upfront.

Wrong context…

To emphasize that “free software” refers to freedom and not to price, we sometimes write or say “free (libre) software,” adding the French or Spanish word that means free in the sense of freedom. In some contexts, it works to use just “libre software.”

The firmware on the Tablo devices themselves is not open source nor free - where did you get this idea?

at the very least it runs lighttpd web server! https://www.lighttpd.net/

And best of all it’s Open Source licensed under the revised BSD license.

It’s just an idea, given it used ext4 filesystem there’s a linux kernel but —

But since they (Nuvyyo / Tablo) say they do, eerrr or may, number 3 https://www.tablotv.com/software-license-agreement/

They used to have a link http://www.nuvyyo.com/opensource which is now defunct, but hard to believe they’ve removed it from past products… to remove the license.


Why would you think it’s all something they made up all by themselves?
