My iOS Tablo app was connecting just fine, but stopped working. There is no error. When I launch the app, it takes me to the Connect to Tablo screen with my Tablo displayed along with a connect button. When I select ‘Connect’, it cycles through ‘Retrieving Tablos…’, ‘Connecting…’, ‘Retrieving Tablos…’, then back to the original screen.
Thanks for this tip. I was having problems getting my iPhone to connect (iPad, 3 Apple TV’s and 2 Roku’s worked fine). I checked my VPN (Express VPN) status and found that it was connected. I turned off the VPN and was immediately able to connect the iPhone
A bit more info:
My Tablo (original four tuner) has worked flawlessly for years. About two months ago I cannot connect to the Tablo app or any of my iPhones or iPads. All I get is the spinning connection when it tries to connect. My Tablo is connected via ethernet and I can use it via my computer also attached via ethernet and through tablo apps on Apple TVs that are ethernet connected as well. I just can’t connect through the Tablo apps on my iPhone and iPad devices. If I use Safari on those devices and connect via My.TabloTv.com, and I’m on my home wifi network, I can connect to live or recorded programs.
I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling them. Resetting the Tablo several times without success. I even removed the static IP in case that was the issue.
So to confirm, accessing the Tablo via the safari browser at http://my.tablotv.com/ works, but using the Tablo apps on those same devices does not? Does rebooting the devices having the issues offer any improvement?
I was having the same problem. When you try to connect, go into settings and make sure that the VPN button is not checked.
Mine was on with an apple supplied one, I run my own so did not know or want to use there’s.
I turned it off, tried to connect again with the same problem. I deleted app, reinstalled and it, it connected within 5 seconds.
