Just to make sure you’re following all the required steps.
In the Tablo Settings screen, click on the ‘Edit Channel Lineup’ button.
Click on the ‘Rescan’ button.
When the rescan is finished, click on the ‘Add to Guide’ button.
When it takes you back to the Tablo settings screen, it’s still working on downloading the guide data, and Live TV channels probably won’t work properly.
You have to wait until the guide data completely downloads, which usually takes 2 passes.
Here’s a recent post explaining that part:
If all else fails, try changing the zip code to one that is near your actual zip code via the ‘Edit Location’ button, and perform the above steps again.
The guide data update download time varies depending on how many channels you selected.
I have 7 channels, and it takes around 7 minutes.
I don’t know if that means 1 minute per channel, but the main thing is to wait until it completely finishes before trying to use your Tablo.
The actual guide data updating progress is displayed by clicking on the hamburger button (3 horizontal lines in the upper lefthand corner), like in the following example:
It typically goes thru 2 download sessions before completing.
One last thing to try after the guide data download completes is to reboot your Tablo by briefly pressing the reset button on the back of the Tablo.
Strange, briefly pressing the reset button should reboot the Tablo, and you should have seen the LED light blinking rapidly at first, and them more slowly for about 1 minute before it remained solid.
The only time a reset doesn’t work for me is when my Tablo hangs, but you had access to yours before you attempted the reset, so I don’t know why it didn’t work for you.
I think that blinking combination means it’s downloading the guide data, which isn’t listed in the LED status description provided by Tablo:
Is your Tablo connected to your network with a network cable, or is it wirelessly connecting to your network?
Thank you. I am most of the way there. Now almost all!
The blinking led was telling me the Ethernet cable was loose. Even though I noticed it after the reboot, the tablo was now looking for wifi. I pushed it in tightly and executed another cold reboot.
Good news bad news, mostly good.
All the channels were there, but most of the added had no info. Well I am a slow one handed typist. When I looked up while entering this ALL channels had program info with the except of quest, which is still empty.
Thank you all for the help. Any ideas on quest?? (that’s kind of a what have you done for me lately question. LOL)
TitanTV shows data for AM but info loop says PM, so I don’t know. TitanTV also has info for dates after Jan 29. In all fairness to @TabloTV Tv Guide does not list Quest either. On Titantv it shows network that .1 is logo but says QUEST coming soon. For example, Austin shows ABC logo 24.1 is ABC KVUE and San Antonio shows CBS logo KENS 5.1 is CBS.
