Solution found (for chome browser on Chromebook):
In chrome, go to http://my.tablotv.com
This will possibly send you to https://my.tablotv.com (with a new message telling you to drop the “s”, but that’s not enough for my browser).
- click the lock icon to the left of the address
- select “site settings”
- find the “insecure content” set that to ALLOW (for just this site, because we are changing settings only for this site).
I found the setting at
after the change, be sure to visit the site without the “s”
Thanks triple D. That solved it!
Glad to help.
Tablo support said they didn’t have a solution, that really surprised me.
I have provided tablo support with the fix. Hopefully they will pass it on to others.
Hey, but you wouldn’t want someone to intercept your stream of Gilligan’s Island!
Yes, they went too far in this change at Google. Not every site needs everything encrypted.
Yes, you can change site specific settings just for this one site. See my earlier post for how to.
Dont forget “stie specific” is only maintained with site settings. If/when a user, for troubleshooting for example, clears these its lost. (Sure, you’ll likely remember, not all will)
This isn’t the same an exceptxion to a global setting.
General rant: What Google/Chrome is doing is quite obscene (evil, incorrect).
Absolutely, why should anyone have to “figure out” how to use their own device on a local network network.
I tried the site specific setting again this morning, and it doesn’t work for me. I have to use the global setting.
I just went back and read what you wrote, Ikahhan. Yes, I would think if you turned on the option to “Always use secure connections” that would actually cause your problem. That option forces HTTP connections to reload as HTTPS.
The Tablo doesn’t support HTTPS for streaming data. Your TV shows don’t really need to be encrypted. Forcing the httpS is forcing the browser to require encryption. I would leave that “Always use secure connections” off.
Whenever I go to http://my.tablotv.com/ it doesn’t find my TabloTV4. I tried Chrome, Edge and Firefox and they all gave me the same result. The Tablo windows app also does the same thing.
Do you mean a 4th generation Tablo? You can’t use a computer/browser to connect to them. Only the legacy Tablos support browsers and web apps.
Yep. what @snowcat said.
Tablo does have a web site that runs in those browsers, but it only connects to “legacy” Tablo devices. In other words, the newest Tablo 4th Gen device does not “yet” have connectivity to a website or web app.
