I recently ordered and received a Tablo 2-Tuner DVR from Newegg. Super excited!
Je ne sais pas - if you think it’s used, exchange it. You can for free. It should be new, don’t think refurbs are selling anywhere yet. Well I did see refurbs for sale, but thought it was only directly from Tablo.
How much did you pay? That’ll help determine if you bought refurb or new.
To clarify, I know that I paid for a new Tablo.
Tablo does not come with an antenna either. You have to buy one separately.
@homli - Call Tablo support - they can probably tell if the product was used before.
The very first shipment of 2-tuner Tablos included an antenna (all those that pre-ordered), but they took it out ever since then.
What’s the make and model of this antenna? Do you have a photo of itV I may be interested in acquiring one if it works well.
I would still get something a little better like the Mohu leaf (which is what I use for my Tablo). But the antenna looks just like this one.
Thanks - I have the Winegard Flatwave, amplified version, but I have one channel that I receive perfectly fine on my HDTV but cuts in and out on my Tablo. Seems the Tablo tuner is not as good as my HDTV tuner in receiving weaker signals. I already tried a distribution amp pre-splitter with no luck so looking for a new antenna.
A larger version of the Mohu Leaf or Winegard Flatwave would be perfect.
Newegg sent me an obviously used unit too. I promptly sent it back a received a new one. They will try to get you to send that unit back and then wait for an inspection before sending you out a new one, which will take a week or more. I fought with them to send a new unit right away so I wouldnt have to wait. After a few calls to supervisors they reluctantly sent a new unit out that day. This seems like a common practice to send used units and charge the new price. I will no longer buy from them.
@homli - Tablo’s box is not normally shrink wrapped or sealed as we only sell through online retailers. That means there should be no tampering with the contents of the box.
