Hi all you brilliant Guys & Gals,
My Tablo worked fine for years, always a bit buggy but worked OK.
Just got the latest 04/2017 firmware update and everything hit the fan.
Boot up a recorded show on an android tablet / go to cast it to the TV with Chromecast / TV switches (as usual) from the google slide show to the TABLO logo like it's about to play the recording and it halts right there .
During this "stop" there is nothing I can do to advance the show. None of the play controls on the Tablo interface will function (play, jump ahead or jump back).
As seen from the tablet: recorded show halts at the very beginning of the show.
Disconnecting the TV's chromecast from casting , restores the program to play on the Tablet.
It's not a crash of the chromecast, tablet or the Tablo unit.
Rebooted all chromecasts, tablets, Tablo and router. No difference.
Latest chromecast "Home" App
Latest Tablo Android App
Does it happen consistently?
One in about 20 tries on ANY system, it will cast correctly.
It simply seems to reach a "hard stop" as soon as the casting is ready to begin.
A recorded program will play fine on the tablet. You just can't cast it.
My network seems just fine.
I have three Samsung 4 Core Galaxy Tab A, Lenovo 4 core Tablet, three TVs and 3 Chromecasts.
All do the same thing. It seems not to depend on the hardware used.
I'm now in "NO Tablo" & TV HELL.
Would appreciate help, although it seems like it was the firmware update.
