Having more years in computers then most of you are old, I have seen what is going on with tablo and it's users more times then I can even remember. Believe it or not, this is very typical in much of the computer tech world. For one reason or another, just about every piece of hardware, software, operating systems, games, or maybe a few hundred other parts and pieces of technology the computer revolution has slapped in our collective faces over the past 35 years or so.
Most of it is harmless fun, sort of like rooting for your team against another. Picking sides is what everyone does in just about everything. This "harmless fun" can turn however when too much ruffing of feathers happens and this is more of what's happening here right now.
Now I am not anyone to judge anyone else, so I won't. But I am someone who can see poking back and forth at each other with quips, innuendos, and at times outright accusations. It isn't going to help anything, and it does hurt. Anyone punched in the nose is going to punch back, just about for certain. We're all put together this way. But, not ever one has to punch someone to make his/her point. This is where much of what is going on here really needs to be put to rest.
If anyone has something good to express about an experience with this technology, that should be acceptable to all of us. And, I think it is. Where the problem arises with this is when someone uses his good fortune to somehow indicate someone else must be doing something wrong, "because mine works fine"! This is the punch in the nose no one wants to get.
Then when someone decides to fight back over what he believes are unsolvable issues with bzillions of reasons his stuff is perfectly interfaced to every other component in his house, so it must be this faulty device's fault exclusively. Then the back and forth begins.
It is obvious when someone has something they really like because it is doing exactly what they really want it to do, they are going to express good things about it when they get the opportunity. That is what we all do. When that very positive outlook confronts someone who is hurting because their "something" is all broke, it doesn't do much to take that hurt away, does it? In fact, it can feel like your getting your nose rubbed in it more then any help someone might want to offer.
On the other hand, just because you absolutely know you got a lemon, when instead you wanted an orange, it does not mean everyone got lemon's does it. It can be that a device is more prone to act in a certain manner based on extenuating circumstanced, which can be varied from one installation to another. Every car that rolls off the assembly line, even though the exact same make and model, does have a "life of it's own" it will live up to. Same with electronics and even the code within that addresses those electronics can have different results with those electronics. This does not mean there isn't room for improvement, for fixes, and even re-engineering as necessary.
I believe we are at a point, and have been for some time, where everyone understands our little black box is not perfect and really needs to be better overall and specifically fixed to reduce or eliminate far to many bugs. But, until or if that happens, we should all try to make the best of what we have work for each of us. Some have found ways to make use of this device, even though there are difficulties along the way -- I have. Others have chosen to leave it to others and have left to greener pastures. Still others are willing to (some are really able to in fact) help those with difficulties setting up there equipment for the best possible outcome based on what they have to work with.
The key to getting any of these things, is to get along.
So, there's some words up there to read. Give it some though and see if there isn't a better way to move forward here then punching each other in the nose.
