I keep getting unknown err never had this before. Could this be because of a update?

Hard to say without taking a look, but we’d be happy to help out. Can you send the details to our support team?

Well, I have to say it DOES seem much better,. Live TV guide populates much faster. I was experiencing some “oddities” after the update but forcing the app to stop and clearing the cache seems to have fixed it. Thanks for the improvement!!

To the tech elves at Tablo,
With this update for Fire TV and Android TV, the app, since it’s android OS based it should be easily adapted to other non-Amazon/Shield (i.e. Android TV) generic android platforms (tablets, phones , android , minix tv box, vorke tv box, etc.). The standard app (V.1.8.8) that runs on these devices has not been updated with some on the new features (dark-mode, faster sync, performance improvements, etc) and is at least a couple of revs behind. These orphan devices deserve the same love as their more famous siblings.

Thanks!

@dy57 - We are planning a big refresh of the Android mobile app for phones and tablets. No ETA for that but it’s the next big task for our Android team.

However, we can’t guarantee how great that update might perform on these generic Android boxes that are running a mobile OS instead of the Android TV OS as they should.

There’s a reason why we recommend the devices that we do because they follow a set of standards laid out for television-connected Android devices. That means we know what to expect in terms of how our app should behave and that the devices will receive regular updates and support.
