I just received my new Quad and got it all hooked up and running. Everything was working well, setup some recordings, watched some live TV, watched some recorded programs, all seemed fine. That is, until I was flipping through some live channels. I happened to tune to a station that was a one of the weaker reception stations. Tablo shows it as 5 green dots, but I know it to be one that doesn’t come in well (the picture pixelated and dropped out from time-to-time). The first time I tuned to the channel I received an error message that the reception was too poor (I can’t remember the exact message). The 2nd time I tuned to it, I came in clear for a few minutes. When I came back to it a 3rd time, the picture was completely Green and Pink.
I normally wouldn’t worry about this except that from that point forward, every channel was Green and Pink. I did a channel rescan to confirm that there wasn’t something causing some temporary anomaly with the reception, but I still had strong signal on the channels you would expect. Yet those still came in Green and Pink. Since it was late, I disconnect my Roku from the Tablo and called it a night.
When I woke up, all the recordings that took place over the evening all came out Green and Pink. Live TV was still Green and Pink on all channels. I did a power cycle on the Tablo and it resolved the problem, but my concern is that this may be an going issue. I found some old topics with people who experienced a similar issue, but there seemed to be no follow-up or resolution.
Anyone else have this issue before? Does it popup from time-to-time, or should I hope this is just a freak occurrence? I removed the weak channel for now to see if that removes the issue. Just wondering if there is anything else I should do.
