I was getting the unknown error on this thread
And I removed my harddrive, rebooted the device and the tablo is now playing live TV – but only for a few seconds or minutes before stopping.
However I plugged the hard drive into the PC and windows seems to give me the correct information about it. I think there is a chance that the hard drive is working but there is something corrupt in the video files causing tablo to throw an error.
What’s causing my live TV to stop/fail when I don’t have a hard drive plugged in? I recall reading that my model does have internal storage specifically for Live TV and hard drives are only required for recording.
and Is there a way for me to try and recover at least some successful recordings of my (assuming) working hard drive through my PC before refomatting and plugging into a tablo again?
