And if that’s the case, how?
@sql_lover, yes you can. First you need to pair, as you mentioned. And then you have to enable Tablo Connect in your settings. You may also have to do some port forwarding, but the ports will be identified for you by your Tablo once you enable Tablo Conect.
Here’s the instructions: http://support.tablotv.com/hc/en-us/articles/202200368-Chapter-6-Connecting-to-Tablo-Away-from-Home
Well, I did that … my iPad works fine. But I’m afraid I don’t know how to do that for my work’s PC, which of course, stays at work.
Unfortunately the device has to be paired while it’s on your own home network. If it’s a desktop, that might be a bit difficult to explain… :D
I see, that’s what I thought… I guess I’m out of luck then. I will figure out something then. That was my plan A for FIFA World Cup, live I mean.
I am heading off to Europe tomorrow, and I am bringing my two tablets with me. Tablo Connect has worked for me fine so far the few times I have tried it, but I am curious if it will work overseas. I will let you know!
@snowcat - We’ve had people test it in the Caribbean successfully so keep us posted on how it goes in Europe. Enjoy your trip
@snowcat, do you need me to carry your bags for you?? I can come to do that, of course you would pay
@snowcat I watched my home news show form Puerto Rico without a hitch in the web app.
@snowcat - PS - please take a picture of yourself watching Tablo on your Euro vacation!
I have decent upload rates at home, so for me, download speed when I’m away from home is the key!
Can someone please confirm if static IP address is required for away from home connection? Thank you.
A static IP is not absolutely required, but it is highly recommended. If your router reboots for some reason, it may reassign all the IP addresses in your system, which would mess up your Tablo Connect.
yeah, this all needs to be easier - i understand the concept behind “pairing” is to make things easier - but it also limits where and when i can watch recordings, which isn’t what this product is about. Maybe something like a token “file” you can install on a remote PC?
My wife and I made it to Prague just fine this morning. When I got to the hotel, my Tablo connect worked great!
I have taken any pictures yet with it here, but I will at some point.
@snowcat - Hahaha. Thanks for checking in and glad things are working well. Enjoy your vacation!
