Right now I have 2 different FOX and PBS channels. The Tablo is telling me I have conflicts for recording shows because it is trying to record them on both FOX stations. We need a feature to allow us to pick which station to record from. For me I know the one FOX channel is stronger so I would also like to record from that one. I don’t want to remove the other station from Tablo because sometimes they show different sporting events.
Right now you can unschedule a recording from the ‘extra’ channel but we’ll look at a non-kludgy way to do this.
When a show appears in the conflicts page, I can’t see what it is in conflict with, unless I try to hunt it down in all the scheduled programs. The live TV timeline only covers a couple of days.
@HarryR Was wondering about this too. When looking at the grid view of shows, it only goes out for the next day. @TabloTV I know that the device stores 14 days worth of guide data, but is there a reason the grid is limited to only a couple of days?
I too get duplicate recordings due to shows being on 2 channels at the same time. I’d like to have the ability to prioritize my channels and have Tablo recognize that if a show is on multiple channels simultaneously, to only record the one on the highest priority channel.
Also if it has already been recorded not to record it again.
I still think there ought to be a way of knowing what the conflict is in the form of a brief list of just the conflicts. That way you can quickly make a choice.
Here is an example
I just want to see what is already scheduled on the other 2 tuners on the specific time that the conflict occurs, so I can decide what I would rather schedule. I don’t need to see any more.
@HarryR - If you go to ‘Scheduled’, there is a ‘Conflicts’ page:
What show is the above in conflict with?
@PiX64 Exactly! The screen presently tells you there is a conflict, but does not tell you what is already scheduled at that time.
Gotcha. Sending this thread to the UI team.
There’s actually a conflict resolution dialog for the iOS app – the HTML5 app will have it shortly. In the short term we have the Conflicts tab under Scheduled, but as you’ve pointed out that’s not ideal.
Good point @matb33 - I use web-based so often I sometimes forget we have more stuff on the iOS and Android apps.
PERFECT! that looks a lot like the TV UI for SageTV conflict resolution and I love it.
Looks good. I don’t see that on windows.
@HarryR - Yes, it hasn’t been implemented in the web-based app yet.
That would certainly be a welcome addition.
One more question. When recording back to back episodes on both tuners, what happens with the extra buffer time normally added to the beginning and end of the show? (When both tuners are busy) Does the show then arbitrarily start recording the new show on the hour or will the extra frames still be added from what was previously recorded? Is there an overlap? Just curious.
