Now that beta is over and only those paying for commercial skip are using it, how has it been working?
Not worth a damn. It appears to me that it is skipping parts of programs that are not commercials, and not skipping some or all commercials. The beta version was a delight. It seemed to almost always work, and work well.
I thought that maybe the problem was that I was still using “Tablo Preview.” When I bought my Quad, nothing told me what Preview (the beta version) was; I figured that out only much later. When I started having major problems, I switched to the released version of Tablo, and I see no change.
I expect that the next thing to happen is that someone will ask me a number of in-depth questions in order to fully analyze the problem. I can answer those questions right now, by saying, “I don’t know.” I didn’t buy this product in order to have a new hobby, I don’t want it to be the new focus of my life. I have not been keeping a journal of its operation; I haven’t purchased a ‘baby book’ for it.
I love this box. I love the design concepts, and, for the most part, I love the implementation. Well done! I thought that the guide and skip features were worth the price charged. And the commercial skipping feature is a big deal to me, and it isn’t working.
