Manual Recording: Title field is blank when you try to add Live TV show to schedule

I was hoping that 2.2.2 would have resolved this issue. I believe this has been present in the 2 most recent releases.

  • If you are looking at Live TV with the “free” guide, and you click on a show to add it to the schedule, all fields are populated except the Title of the show. (i.e., the “Schedule Manual Recording” form)
  • This used to work fine in earlier releases. The workaround is to type the title manually.
  • I have seen this on two different Tablo’s in two different markets.

Has anyone seen this? (I couldn’t find mention of this in the forum)

@tablotester - Which client are you seeing this on?

@TabloTV: FireTV (box) and PC/browser (Opera)

This is one of the reasons I like the iPad app over the latest iPhone app. On iPad it still populates the title, but not on the lates iPhone app.

EDIT: UPDATED with feedback from other users as indicated

Thanks @huff3566!

@TabloTV: Just confirming that I had a friend check it via iPad as well and it does populate the title properly on iPad.

So, auto-populating the title:

  • FireTV (box): Does not work
  • PC/browser (Opera): Does not work
  • PC/browser (Chrome): Does not work (per @AceConrad)
  • iPhone: Does not work (per @huff3566)
  • Android tablet does not work (per @AceConrad)
  • iPad: Does work

I’m also missing the Title field when scheduling a manual recording (no Guide subscription) with the following:

Android tablet
Chrome browser on a PC.

Tablo firmware is 2.2.2

Thanks @AceConrad, this is very helpful.

I have updated my post about to include your feedback.

@TabloTV, please kindly take note.

BTW, @AceConrad, how are you doing this on a Roku??

How do you schedule a Tablo recording on the Roku without a subscription? Even on the Tablo Preview channel I don’t see a method to do this.

You’re right, it’s not possible lol! Must have got a little carried away. I’ve edited my post above.

We’ve got a fix for this and it will be pushed in our next update of the web client.

@TabloTV, thank you for the update.

I am looking forward to this one.

@TabloTV, this appears to be fixed (at least in Opera); confirming what was stated in the latest release notes.

HTML Application version: 1.0.23-597

Thank you

Edit: Tagging @huff3566 and @AceConrad in case they want to provide feedback regarding the platforms they originally reported about.

It’s now working properly on my PC with Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers as well as on my Android tablet.
