Here's a few observations from my brand new install using the amazon fire stick.
- Launching the Tablo app, is way off centered. (see video)
- I notice is the video player crops my screen on all 4 corners. There is about a 2 inch border around my 55 inch sony bravia.
- Video quality is no where near the same as directly plugged into the antenna, why? The player at best appears to lack color, vibrance and looks blotchy...not to mention the constant buffering. I've included 2 sets of pictures below to see the difference. The 2 sets are from tablo and then from antenna only. I've additionally included a video to see first hand.
Sony Bravia 55 Inch TV using Tablo
Gap around the 4 corners of TV
Using ONLY Antenna with Sharp 70 inch TV
Crystal clear, colors are vibrant and rich and way exceeds our cable provider.
Video - Shows stuttering and buffering, as well shows quality of video.
Please see this unlisted on youtube.
I would like a workaround published, if it means use another player, etc.
I've adb'd into firestick and can side load apps, though everything I've read refers to 1.5 version as a working substitute while tablo dev's fix this, though I don't have any andriod devices to download the apk from google play. (if that is in fact the right version), I've looked at other apk sites which show version 1 or 1.1
Brand new install
I've also enabled QOS to help assist per my ASUS RN660, though this hasn't made that much of a difference.
I do find that using plex gives me full screen, rather than the 2 inch gap as the tablo app does on fire stick.
Hope the info provided helps provide 1st hand data to work with.
Please post the android video player or some type of step by step workaround while fire stick is being updated.
