Finally cut the cord this morning and am enjoying getting the tablo all set-up. I’ve run into an issue I can’t seem to solve and has got me worried I was sent the wrong device. I bought the 4-tuner tablo, and things are working well so far. It’s playing a show right now on my Roku LT and I’ve been able to successfully play shows on my Android phone and laptop (Windows 7, google chrome). The problem I’m having is when I start playing something on one device, it stops playback on the previous device. For example, I have a live TV show playing on the Roku. While that’s running, I open the tablo guide on my laptop and select a different show. Playback begins on my laptop but stops on my Roku. Then I play something on my phone and it stops playback on my laptop. It’s behaving as if playback is only allowed on one device at any one time. My understanding was the 4 tuner device would allow playback of 4 different channels simultaneously. Ideas? (BTW - I updated the firmware to 2.1.20)
When there is no hard drive present, only one tuner is active on the Tablo. So it is performing as expected.
Perfect - panic mode: off!
You’re welcome. After your hard drive is plugged in and formatted by the Tablo, you will be able to watch shows concurrently on all your devices. You can watch up to 4 different channels and as many recorded shows as your network can handle (Tablo says about 6 devices at once).
dwt I’m gonna pick on ya a bit - the quick-start card says at the top of the backside, connect antenna, connect hard drive, connect power last.

lol - chiding accepted. But in my defense, I had the tablo in hand and the hard drive’s not going to arrive for a few more days. You’re telling me you wouldn’t play with the shiny new toy!?
Can’t tell you that. If I did I’d be lying! :D
