New to posting but not new to following these forums. I’ve been doing a lot of research on Tablo and Tivo and I’m just about ready to buy a Tablo. I haven’t spent weeks reading every single post in the forums so I apologize if this question is a repetition of a discussion that was already held.
Question: Is manual recording on Tablo as easy as an old-fashioned VCR: just tell the machine “record channel 6.1 from 8:00 to 9:00 pm every Tuesday”?
Reason I’m asking: I would get the subscription for listings with Tablo. On Tivo you have to have a subscription in order to record anything. Not that I wish any bad luck to either company, but if Tivo goes belly-up then their products turn into expensive door stoppers. If Tablo folds then the manual aspect should still work. Major advantage for Tablo.
(There has been a lot of chatter about the long-term viability of Tivo, especially since they were acquired by another company earlier this year.)
Thanks in advance for any insight.
