I find it surprising that a product that has been on the market for a few years now would have a bug as basic as this one. Recording shows is one of the core functionnality of this product, whether it is a manual recording or not…
I will try to remember the workarounds for next time.
Same manual recording issue – Win and Android. What does that link state in a nutshell? Is Tablo actively working on the fix? That link shows as private for me.
This is my first community post…so why not add a little more commentary.
I paid the monthly fee for almost 2 years, and decided to cancel about a week ago. For the most part, I’ve been a promoter and lover of the Tablo name and product up to this point. After cancelling, I’m shocked how stupid they’ve made the device without a subscription. Manual recordings don’t even work correctly for Windows or Android. This may be a bug, but come on - really? This is like the most basic functionality for a DVR…To record something you’re watching currently, or something you want to watch in the future!
Being two years into Tablo, it’s my perception Tablo is most focused on those iOS lovers - which is not me. I’ve been pretty tolerable this last couple years with a new company trying to build and innovate. It takes time! However, even with subscription, every issue I’ve ran into seems to be isolated to just Android or Windows with Tablo. There’s a pattern forming.
Thankfully, the world will continue to innovate. If Tablo doesn’t figure it out soon, I’m sure there will be at least a couple other solid options out there that are right for me. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already looking. I hope to see a resolution to this.
I can confirm that the bug is there for Win10 with individual recordings, but I can still use repeating to get around it. I just selected every day of the week, and I was able to create a recording for any time.
