Hi there Tablo fans -
A new firmware 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.
Along with some noticeable performance improvements, 2.2.18 includes a secret project we’ve been working on over the last few months…
ADVANCED RECORDING FEATURES!
This includes the following:
- Adjust Start/Stop Time - Start recordings up to 10 mins early and end as much as 3 hours after the scheduled program time
- Keep X Recordings - Retain all episodes or only a select number of airings
- Recording Channel Selector - Choose which channel to record from if multiple channels are airing a favorite program
Check out the Tablo blog for a full overview of the new features:
Release Notes for 2.2.18

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.
**Companion Apps** Tablo's new advanced recording options require companion apps to the 2.2.18 firmware.
Many recent Tablo app updates have already secretly enabled these features, which will become visible once your Tablo’s firmware has been updated.
If you’re running the following versions (or newer) of these Tablo apps, no further updates are required:
• Roku - version 2.3.0+
• Tablo Preview (for Amazon Fire TV & Android TV) - version 1.2.0
• Apple TV - version 1.4.1+
• Web App - version 1.4.1
Updates for the following supported devices will be rolled out today. You’ll need to process the app updates before you’re able to see advanced recording settings on these platforms:
• Android TV – version 1.4.1
• Amazon Fire TV – version 1.4.1
• iOS & Android mobile apps – version 1.4.1
