I recently joined the Tablo community with a Tablo Dual with external USB 2 TB HDD. Not sure it matters but I’m in the greater Austin, TX area. I purchased a lifetime guide subscription so I should have full access to the 14 day guide.
However, after a bit more than a week the guide is still not populating beyond about 48 hours. I can’t look forward long enough to find the programs I want to set up to record. When a program does fall within the available 48 hours I can set it up to record and I can set up the recurring recordings so I believe that means I do have the appropriate permissions within the guide from my lifetime subscription purchase.
What else can I do to get the guide data to populate like it should? I missed the last episodes of This Old House and Ask This Old House this past weekend because we were out of town and I couldn’t set these recordings up earlier last week.
Live TV. So that explains it. Very different from what I expected.
I’m at work right now so I can’t see anything.
So what I need to do is move down to TV Shows list, and then is there a search feature or something? Sorry, I know I’ve seen that screen but I didn’t spend much time there as I just assumed (yes I know) that the grid guide would be where I would search out shows.
And thanks for the enlightenment. I feel pretty ignorant now.
I’d really just like to see what I have scheduled day-by-day instead of tiles of every possible show I have selected to record. So maybe not a live grid, but why not a daily grids? Why should users have to look elsewhere to see what’s on in the days to come when we’ve paid for 14 days… not a collections of show tiles to click’n see.
Thinking this was a good idea, still seems screwy, as others seemed baffled by it as well… having to get use to it.
Tiles wasn’t really my choice, I see them as silly pictures when a list of titles would work for me, but that’s me.
I’m not sure if it’s what other apps use as much as other streaming services you’ve mentioned including cable/satellite… Your comment suggests it not so much different as it’s going against generally accepted conventions.
Never seen such a way to find OTA shows, yea it’s different. Not sure users should have to “get use to it” really, but then I wouldn’t think anyone ought to pay for internet connectivity to watch free OTA programming.
