Hi there Tablo fans -
A new maintenance firmware update is on the way for your Tablo!
Like previous releases, this firmware will be offered in a staged rollout. A small portion of users will have access to this firmware immediately. We will increase access slowly as we judge feedback and distribute the firmware to increasingly larger batches of units over the coming week.
About This Release
This maintenance release is at the request of our guide data provider. Our popularity has placed a heavier load than expected on their servers, so they’ve asked us to make some optimizations around how your Tablo obtains its guide data. The tweaks we’ve made are minor so you shouldn’t see any difference on your end in terms of how your Tablo operates.
We’ve also added a small feature for sports fans. Recordings that have been automatically extended will maintain their ‘resume’ point past the portion of the recording where extended time was added.
Release Notes for 2.2.16:
• Significant update to improve guide download reliability
• Fix to maintain resume playback position within the ‘extended’ portion of extended recordings
• Other reliability and performance enhancements
NOTE: Post-upgrade database processes (if needed) may take several minutes to complete. During this time the LED will be blinking. Do not power down the Tablo until the LED is solid again.
