Bought one and like it! Have one question


#1

Thanks to all the input here I bought a Tablo. This, after trying Plex DVR and HDHR DVR. Tablo is clearly the best for me.

One question- Is it possible to set recording defaults like how many shows to keep, channels, new / all? So I don’t have to set them every time I set a recording? If so, how?


#2

Thanks for your purchase @SJMaye! Glad to hear we won the bake-off :smiley:

Yes, if you have an active subscription you’ll have access to all of our advanced recording features including keep X, channel select, and Rec New/RecAll.

The details on the newsest recording features are here:

And most apps have these settings within the Guide, Scheduled, and Recordings screens.

To my knowledge there is no “recording defaults” setting, you have to set the advanced recordings options for each series.


#4

Correct. It’s on a per show basis for flexibility (i.e. regular shows vs newscasts).


#5

Yes, so I have been using the advanced settings all along. The recording defaults I was used to were from my Tivo You have defaults that you set such as the one channel or all, number of shows to save, padding etc. This makes setting a record a one button click unless you wanted to change one of those defaults.

No problem, though. I am very happy with what I have experienced so far. The channel reception is actually better than it has been with the HDHR Extend.

Can someone tell me if what I am seeing is normal? I am supposed to have 2 weeks of guide data, but when i look at the channel grid guide and attempt to look forward in time I can only go out 24 hours ( I think that is the number).


#7

Yes, that is normal. The two weeks of guide data are in all the other sections (Prime Time, Movies, Shows, etc).

Understood. Thanks!
