One of the great advantages of Tablo is supposed to be that I can watch my live and DVRed content without an active internet connection. At least, I thought that was one of the advantages. What would the Tablo require an internet connection to do?
My ISP is currently experiencing an outage, but my home network and WiFi are up and running just fine. But when I use my Roku to navigate to the Tablo app, I get “Authorization Failed.” If I back out, I’m able to search my network for Tablos, and see my Tablo device listed on the local network, but I’m still not able to connect to it.
Any idea why? During an internet outage would be a great time to be able to use my antenna, and I can’t imagine what on earth an internet connection would be absolutely required for. I understand that no new guide data would be available past the last download, but so what? Why can’t I still access my recordings and live TV without guide data?
Is this just a bug? Thanks
