I started this over in the general discussion forum. But don’t seem to be getting an answer.
I am considering buying a Tablotv DVR as a replacement for a (soon to be discontinued) Slingbox.
The Tablo DVR seems to do everything the Slingbox does, maybe even better, except for the remote connection.
Once set up I can access my Slingbox with a user ID and password.
The Tablo requires that the remote device (say a Firestick) be synched on the same LAN as the Tablo is on. This is OK except I keep hearing sometimes the remote devices lose their connection and the only easy way to reconnect is to synch on the LAN again.
Since I am frequently away from home for months on end it’s not an option to resynch as device, or at least it may be weeks or month before I can.
So, how big an issue is this? Does the remote connection typically last for days/weeks/months? Is there a simple way to reconnect remotely that doesn’t involve having the home LAN on a VPN?
