Over the past month or so i have had issues with my 2 tuner tablo. About twice a week my tablo is no longer found on my network. When i check the Tablo, I can’t do the simple push the blue and reset it. Pushing does nothing, and i have to actually unplug the unit to get it working again. Not sure why this is happening. Anyone else have this issue. Its starting to get annoying.
I would just do this stupid simple thing. Set it on its side instead of laying down flat. As stupid as it sounds that solved a lot of things for me, not sure if it was heat or what, but huge difference for me.
I’ve considered going into fabricating Tablo stands that stand them on one end, raise the lower end off the table or surface a bit for air flow. Perhaps acrylic or aluminum. It would look decent, set them on end, raise it for better air flow, etc. and even help increase the effective size of the heat sink effect of the bottom of the Tablo.
I will try the side standing and see if that helps. Thanks!
Unfortunatly having to restart and sometimes even pull power is "normal" with the tablo box. The stability of these boxes really need to be addressed in an update.
Have you given static IP to your tablo? If so then please remove the same. I have had similar issues where in I had to just reboot almost everyday.
@girimurthy - not sure I understand what you are saying here. Are you saying the static ip made your tablo more unstable so you removed it? I am not sure how that would be possible.
You can’t do static since the Tablo has no interface for assigning an IP address in the Tablo. You can do a persistent or reserved/assigned IP through your router. Tell the router to give your Tablo xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx by putting the Tablo’s MAC address in the router’s reserved IP table if it has that capability. No, it does not lead to instability at all! In fact, it’s better for you and your router’s learned routing table (unless you use static routes).
So the Tablo doesn’t have any idea it’s a reserved IP address, it is still making a DHCP request and receiving a DHCP response. the server receives the DHCP request, matches that MAC address and give it the proper IP based on the MAC.
@ShadowsPapa I am going to have to give the reserved IP a try. Since the Tablo locked up last Sunday during the Greenbay game I am also looking at UPS’s. Any suggesttions? I was looking at this one. Figured I did not need a huge one.
@jwhitesel I’ve taken a look on our end - sent you a PM!
