I’m not impressed. My Quad(older one) just updated to v2.2.26, and with all the hype, thought I’d try the commercial skip thing on mine. Well, the commercial skip option does not appear on my Quad. Tablo knows who has what(if they keep track of their sales and registrations) and should direct communications accordingly. I am annoyed to discover that MY Quad does not work like the NEW Quads they are promoting. I have software that I use to manually remove commercials from a TV show. It takes me about 5 minutes per episode. Seems I don’t need to get a new Quad and save some time and money.
Your old OG 4 tuner supports com skip, my old OG 2 tuner which came out before the 4 tuner supports it.
Go to the Settings page on a device like the Roku to turn on com skip. You cannot enable it from devices like your phone or tablet (as these devices do not support com skip).
I am not impressed and annoyed people cannot learn to read before complaining.
“ Once you’ve received and installed the 2.2.26 updateon your Tablo DVR, Automatic Commercial Skip detection can be enabled and disabled globally via the settings screen and enjoyed on following Tablo apps:
Automatic Commercial Skip is not currently available on the original Tablo app for Amazon Fire TV or Android TV, Smart TVs, mobile devices, Xbox, or PC. All apps will continue to support Fast-Forward Previews.”
This is one place Nuvyyo did a good job confusing people. The old 4 tuner is not a Tablo Quad. It’s just a Tablo 4 tuner. Only the new 4 tuner is marketed under the name Quad.
I have the old 4 tuner just like you and I assure you commercial skip does work. Keep in mind however it’s a beta. You should familiarize yourself with the details to get the most out of this feature. The guide is in the post above and it should help.
Hi, just sort of figured how to use my 4 tuner Tablo. In the setup I selected the option for commercial skip. All the major programs I record have to be manually set due to “no guide information”. So my question is (does the auto skip, only skip major network channels and, only prime time. I just switched from Tivo to tablo because the only commercial skip tivo was Wheel of fortune. I have to record Wheel of Fortune manually due to guide having no info. Took me a year to get Tivo support to do what needed done for the guide information. I recorded three programs so far, first was on PBS, second was Wheel of Fortune, third the Carol Burnett show. I now know that PBS, and the manual recording doesn’t skip, and I’m guessing not prime time, or network also have no skip. So have I jumped from the frying pan into the fire? At least with Tivo I had skip on one program. Maybe sports are?
