NEW - Tablo Firmware Release - 2.2.18


#101

Just downloaded .18. I was excited for the advanced recording options, but I didn’t realize that the “keep last X recordings” actually meant that you can only choose between 1, 3, and 5 episodes. @TabloTV why not let it actually be X recordings (user defined variable)…or at least have one or two options higher than 5!


#102

I did the update and it didn’t ask me to reboot it did it by itself.


#103

Still waiting on 2.2.18… Just checked and no update for my Tablo.


#104

If only one could simple click a reboot button on the webui to acctually reboot the unit without having to pull the power plug. :thinking:


#105

If the unit doesn’t even want to reboot by pressing a hardware switch on the back, what makes you think it’ll obey the webUI command to reboot? :wink:

Signed - that one guy without the 2.2.18 update. (@TabloTV)


#106

Bardel, you aren’t alone. I’m still waiting as well!


#107

Maybe the WEB reboot option will happen since it was requested in Sept. of 2014.


#108

I thought they said that by Monday the roll-out would be completed?


#109

Yes, Monday Feb 5.


#110

Just back from some work travel and performed the upgrade.

Apple TV in bedroom fine. Enabled fast startup and there was an improvement. Hopefully mine will continue to perform,

@TabloSupport 2.18 is GOLDEN! Since I complained so much about freezes when FF or REW on Roku I thought I should report my (your) success. I have Roku sticks and 2 Premiere+ and I can FF or REW repeatedly with no freezing. 3 minute update today. including auto reboot. Nice! Got the Roku app update yesterday. Thank you very much. Really love the Tablo now!


#112

Ugh. My bad. Thanks.


#113

My Tablo 4 Tuner got updated today. Pushed the button and IT JUST WORKED! THANKS TABLO! It’s nice to have hardware/software designed by people who know how to roll out stuff. All my clients were already updated so they immediately showed the new recording features.


#114

Got my update this morning. Minor glitches but nothing that matters. I like the new features. Adjusting the start/stop times seems to work well on the fly, even for shows already scheduled to record.

I like being able to have last nights news recoded and only last nights news. I still have not figured out how the option to keep older recorded shows functions. i set my options and let it clean up somethings on my hard drive.

The installation was quick and smooth. No issues with my Rokus, Ipad and Amazon Fie tablet.


#115

Rebooted my router again tonight and both of my Amazon devices are now working, thank goodness!


#116

The ‘how it works’ is laid out in the blog post:

#117

This is disconcerting. Is 5 the max # of episodes we can retain? That’s not gonna work for me…


#118

It’s the max limit that you can specify. If you need more then that you could just keep it on All Episodes or Auto to let the overall Auto-Delete take care of it.


#119

Given the one report of soft-bricking (not being able to use) on the Fire Stick once updated to 2.2.18, can anyone confirm being able to run 2.2.18 with a Fire Stick? Thanks!

Also, my two cents (one U.S., one Canadian): a limit of keep 5 old episodes seems unhelpful. Yes, it’s one-week’s run of a daily or a month-plus of a weekly, but there are 7-days-a-week shows and many want to keep one season’s worth, etc. Would be much better to allow user-specified, or a pull-down of 1-to-50, or simply a larger max if for some reason only a few options can be given. </2¢>

What is the load time on live tv viewing now?
