I've had my 4-tuner Tablo for some time, starting well before the first iteration of the Tablo Apple TV app.
Early versions of the Tablo Apple TV app had fairly consistent playback control using the Siri Remote. However, since the latest firmware upgrade (2.2.20), I've been experiencing a lot more inconsistency, especially when Fast Forwarding.
It seems that I must VERY precisely position my finger on the Siri Remote tracking surface, and hold it down absolutely stationary to successfully FF. If I'm the slightest bit "off" in my positioning or pressure, FF stops. If I continue to hold, FF resumes, but erratically.
I agree that the Siri Remote can be "fiddly" and require accurate gestures, however the Tablo app, running this firmware, has lately delivered the worst results. Other apps are more forgiving, and I generally don't think twice about navigating.
I'm experiencing this issue on both the Apple TV 4th Gen, and the Apple TV 4K (5th gen).
Is there any other Apple TV user experiencing this issue, or do I need to maybe file down my callouses?
