My wife and I were having a new house built in another part of Nashville, but due to delays, we had to move out of our old home and move in with my parents for about 6 weeks. They still have cable, so I didn’t hook up my Tablo all that time.
When we finally moved (around a month ago), there was no internet in our new neighborhood, so I had use my phone for everything. I saved my hotspot data for my work PC, so no Tablo yet. Finally I was able to get at least the T-Mobile Home Internet recently (which actually is pretty good in my area) and had all the ethernet cables in my home finished off.
So now I have my Tablo reconnected. Here are some issues I went through:
- Remote access doesn’t work (known issue with T-Mobile home internet)
- Couldn’t get my PC to connect to the Tablo, part 1: My PC was connected to my T-Mobile device, while the Tablo and every other device was connected to my router. They all need to be on the same device.
- Couldn’t get my PC to connect to the Tablo, part 2: After connecting my PC to my router directly, it still wouldn’t connect. But I rebooted the router, the satellite router, and the Tablo, and everything works now.
- The one station I record the most (PBS) had just one red dot while everything else was 5 dots (weird), even after several scans. I swapped out my interior antenna with another one I had, and it went to 5 dots (whew),
At some point my neighborhood will get AT&T or Xfinity, and I will switch. But I am glad to have decent internet and my Tablo back. I may even start recording some shows on Cozi or Antenna TV, since I was watching more of 80’s tv when I had no internet for my TV sets.
