I recently purchased a Tablo with 4 receivers. and the Seagate 2tb drive STEA2000400. I get about 35 OTA channels, all really strong, no pixelation. I'm about 8 miles from the broadcasters on top of Sandia Peak, absolutely no buildings or other structures between here and there. I have 100mb internet and the Tablo is directly connected to my ASUS RT-AC56U router. Short of hardwiring everything I can't imagine a more ideal environment for Tablo. My problem is that i get constant buffering with Tablo - live or recorded. By that I mean I get the loading circle about every 10-15 seconds, making anything really unwatchable.
I also use Sling, Playstation Vue, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Absolutely no buffering with any of those services, only Tablo. I have Amazon Fire TV and a Roku 3. Performance about the same but Roku might be a bit better.
I've tried turning off fast start, lowered the quality settings and have analyzed my wifi channels to ensure I don't have any contention. Most devices are getting better than 10mb speeds, still no improvement in buffering.
Any ideas for other troubleshooting options, maybe try the WD hard drive instead of the Seagate? I may try relocating the Tablo to my main TV so I can hardwire everything, but that involves some fancy antenna work. I really don't want to give up on Tablo, but given how long they have seen this problem, I'm a little concerned that they are not competent enough to solve it. Ideas
