@David_Gilbert@Zman_Tablo is correct - we’re here and happy to help! Different set ups can sometimes yield different results. The best way for us to improve this for you is to isolate your Tablo and see what’s going on.
Send our support team a ticket and we can get this up and running for you.
David-I kept working on this - was using a Netgear HDX101 power line adapter for ethernet…seemed to work ok with my old Apple tv 3 and also worked with the other apps on the Roku…I took another ethernet line directly to my Mac and the Tablo worked as advertised…I then turned on the wifi connection on the Roku and all works fine…
First time the PowerLine failed me for ethernet… Thanks for the help
I’ve been working with Sam and David on the same issue with buffering issues and during watching a stream getting kicked back to the channel guide. They said the issue with getting kicked out is with Roku and they can’t do anything about. I’ve contacted Roku and they won’t acknowledge it’s on their end. So I would assume everyone that has a Roku 3 this happens to them also? All my devices buffer even my hard wired PC. My issues have been going on since I bought it in the middle of May and they haven’t been able to resolve my issues or exchange the device so I’m left to sell it. Too bad I really wanted to like it.
I made the mistake of wathing NBC News on Roku 4 last night. I normally watch on NP with no problems. The Roku had buffering innues. I wish the NP was still avilable. Might need to check out other Android TV option.
One is playing a recorded show and being kicked back into the menu. I haven’t seen that problem with other ott apps or tablo on any roku version.
The other is using Live TV and being kicked back to the grid. The first attempt to reenter results in weak signal message. subsequent attempts hang - for a while. Never had the problem with roku 7.1 and tablo 2.2.8. But rather frequent with tablo 2.2.10.
The more interesting aspect of this is that during the hang that occurs when trying to reenter Live TV the tablo may be observed rebooting.
Some may blame Roku 7.1. But if the tablo is rebooting you may ask yourself if the tablo server software is so fragile that a client media player could/should cause it to reboot. Of course I also noticed, via the WEB app, that the tablo server came back on line before it had brought the disk back on line.
My solution - stop using Live TV for awhile and hope the problem gets resolved.
Agreed, we have a few issues that are similar but definitely different. In my case (and what I tried to link to although everyone may try to describe things differently) is the situation in which I am booted / kicked back to the Tablo grid / recording listing from / out of a Live stream OR a recorded stream.
Mine does NOT reboot the Tablo, it is 100% within the Roku Channel (or Syfy and others in my case), kicked from watching something, back to the screen I was on before I started the stream.
Again, thats what I tried to link to… A few quotes from the links:
"I’ve had a recent problem with my Roku 3 where no matter what I’m watching (Plex, Netflix, Hulu), the stream will exit back to the previous screen randomly[/quote]
Came across this thread this eve. Saw several mentioning-s of NBC, Tablo and Roku issues. Danged if I don’t have these issues too. Have tried a bazillion things… different antennas, locations, readjusting, speed changes (my WiFi is not the problem… extremely fast local area network, this is not the issue). What I get tho is almost like clockwork, every 30 seconds, sometimes it reverts to every 60 seconds, I get a buffering like symptom. Audio glitches for 1 second, video pixelates. I thought it might be some device in my house causing this, so I ended up turning everything possible thing off. No go. NBC via Tablo on Roku is pretty much unwatchable due to this 30 or 60 second pixelating and audio glitching. Drives me crazy. Just registering the issue here. I would love it if Tablo could solve this issue. May try to open up a trouble ticket or some such… Oh, I also was having other issues with Tablo but ended up with a fan to cool the device down and that seems to have helped things somewhat. The Tablo (v3)device definitely overheats. And as a further FYI, NBC presents this 30 to 60 second almost to the second glitch regardless of whether it is a recorded program or Live TV. It is like clockwork… every 30 tor 60 seconds.
Tx for the reply. I have done both of these recommended solutions… hardwiring, and reducing the QOS. Neither worked. It is not buffering. It is exhibiting every 30 seconds, like clockwork, a pixilating thing. I have turned off every possible device in my house to eliminate the possibility of something causing this given it is predictable, every 30 seconds. Nothing. It only happens on the NBC signal. I have changed antennas, locations, hard wiring, QOS, and a slew of other things. No go. ANd it occurs on every device, not just a single TV.
Where do you live? Or better, what frequency is the NBC channel? Sounds like you have something nearby that runs at the frequency or harmonic thereof (or is just such a mess that it interferes with lots of things). Whatever it is, it does its thing every 30 seconds. It’s likely in violation of some communication standards (maybe something not shielded like it’s supposed to be).
