Hi ZepGuy and All,
I agree that the Failed category heading in Recordings has been eliminated from most, if not all, clients.
I used to use it often on my iPhone, but a recent update removed it from there. It also used to be in the Chrome rendering on a Win10 PC, but seems to be gone there as well. EDIT: I just checked now, and once the syncing completed in Chrome on the Win10 PC, I do now have the Failed category heading presented, with 4 entries.
ZepGuy is likely right, too (as I can’t remember) if the fireTV app had it.
+1 from me for voting to have it added back into at least one of the Tablo-provided clients. Although I do like the tip of looking for these through TabloRipper.
My family and I (as the dad) really like the Tablo. But the inconsistent idiosyncrasies like this catch my eye. And I do try recording from channels that occasionally fade out to be weak reception and thus have failed recordings. The Failed category made it easy to clean them up (and know that they failed).
Not to divert too much, but I’ve figured out that for me it’s easier to figure out episodes to protect for a series via the new fireTV app (because it shows a thumbnail image from each), then use the Roku app to delete the unwanted duplicate, now unprotected instances–fewer arrow presses. My use case for this is that our local affiliate for LAFF presents shows as 4:3, even if they were natively produced as 16:9 aspect. But now another LAFF affiliate reaches us, with 16:9 and usually well enough to do Commercial Skip. So my wife and I are having all episodes of Home Improvement and According to Jim record, then culling down to protecting only 16:9 versions with Commercial Skip. I won’t admit that maybe we have a bit of OCD in play for both of us.
Cheers! ~~ Statmanmi
