Can no longer connect to tablo from pc or Firetv

really getting tired of this thing never working properly!!

  1. Is your Tablo hard wired to your router?
  2. What is the make and model of your router?
  3. Is the computer and Fire TV hard wired to the router? Or are they connected via WiFi?
  4. Have you tried power cycling (aka rebooting) said router and Tablo?

I’ve had a lot of issues with mine as well and this is what I did to mostly resolve (most of which theuser86 just mentioned):

  1. Hard wired tablo and roku to router via power line ethernet
  2. Tipped tablo on side and added USB fan. The quad tuner tends to have problems with overheating – this one fixed my biggest issues
  3. Only selecting strong signals for the guide
  4. Reboot the tablo nightly around 3am

You shouldn’t have to reboot the Tablo that often.

Can you set up a DHCP reservation for the Tablo on your router?

I let mine run for months with no issues.

Yep… DHCP reservation is something I’ve also done. I reboot nightly mainly because I want to make sure the thing works throughout the day for the other people in the house. Paranoia I suppose.

I’ve noticed some other oddities too… I suspect the tablo gets confused with which devices are associated with which tuners so conflicts occur that end up kicking both devices out (happened today). As soon as I tried to reconnect the tablo rebooted.

@jcat There are some great suggestions and questions here. If you’re still having trouble please send us a note and we’d be happy to get this working with you directly!
