I am wondering if 2 Tablo’s can talk back and forth? Can you use 2 boxes and have them share scheduling data ? Do you require 1 or 2 subscriptions? If they share Scheduling data does the system do any kind of load balancing to prevent 1 device from being full well the other device is mostly empty?
Update: After seeing some of the replies it is clear that each box is independent and they don’t work together at all. Witch is kinda a shame. I used mythtv in the past and have always had 6 tuners to deal with. Granted they also recorded cable network channels on top of the 5 major networks out there (Yes I count CW as a major network.) however during fall premiers there were generally a few times during the week were all 6 turner were in use and stuff was missed. Cutting out the cable channels just leave the 5 Major networks however the largest box they sell is 4 tuners. So there will likely be some time during the week were something will be missed as all 4 tuners will be in use. It would be great if they allowed systems to combine and share data but there current releases doesn’t support it.
PS. I am having someone come out and give me an est for an outdoor antenna to try and get over the air channels in my area. However from the Maps it looks like 1 (CW) is in the north closest, 3 networks are in the west (2nd Closest) and 4 are to the south (Furthest). So I could end up having to have 2 different units for 2 different antenna’s although I am hoping all the channels can be grabbed from a one antenna but waiting for the local experts to come out and tell me.
