I switched to Tablo a few months ago. So far, it’s been a so so experience. I’ve seen to run into quite a few bumps in the road, which can mostly be attributed to my own level of sophistication as it comes to technology.
I think (hope) that I’m down to one problem. It seems like my recorded programs run fairly well on my laptop. However, when I try to stream to the TV via Chrome Cast, I get loads of buffering.
As I’ve read through, it seems like lots of people have difficulty with Chrome Cast because it doesn’t have sufficient bandwidth. I’ve lowered settings as much as possible but still lots of problems. It’s disappointing that this is listed as a viable option on Tablo’s site given the feedback.
As a result, I’m looking for recommendations on what I should get instead. I’m basically looking for something simple and easy to use (I loved how intuitive the ChromeCast was) and preferably not too expensive. My main need is to make this as easy as possible for my family.
Our basic set up is as follows: we have 2 TV’s in our house. They are in adjacent rooms and share a wall with each other. We have a modem/router with 50 MB download speed and it is located in the TV stand of our main TV. I’m happy to answer any additional questions about our set up if that’s helpful in making recommendations.
Thank you much!
