NEW - Tablo Firmware Release 2.2.22


#21

Nope, the tuner math stays the same whether or not you enable 5.1.
No current plans for the original app.


#22

Thank you…must mean preview app is ready soon…hopefully very soon!

The Preview App has been out for awhile for the Fire TV with the latest update a couple of weeks ago. You just need to wait for the firmware update to your tablo unit.

When Tablo releases a new firmware update with major new features I like to reset my Tablo to Factory settings and reformat my hard drive. Of course I lose earlier recordings but in most cases they are really not archiving.

How long before I have new programs to look at? Just see below what I recorded in just one day after the above actions.

Something to consider if you want all recordings made with the new features.


#25

Good practice. But I haven’t factory reset my Tablo since May 2016 when I upgraded my 300 GB drive to a 1 TB drive. Many firmware updates over the past 2 years and still all good, no issues.


#26

How long will it take for the rollout to complete? Looking forward to 5.1.


#27

Typically takes 1 week, sometimes a bit longer.
Join the beta team, and you’ll get to play with new features before the masses.


#28

Still waiting for the release, but the beta is still working!

Hope the released version fixes the channel 19 not having sound on wifi but does on LTE.


#29

What’s another week, when I’ve been waiting 4+ years…

WHY WASN’T I FIRST TO GET IT?!?!?!? :wink:


#30

You can have my slot position since I’m not interested in any of the changes in 2.2.22.

But for the last 4 years I seem to always be in the 10-14 day update range.


#31

Another batch of users has been offered the 2.2.22 firmware.

Unless you’re using the Apple TV app, or the Android/Amazon Fire TV Preview app you will receive an in-app update notification when your Tablo is eligible.


#32

I WAS CHOSEN!

Party like it’s 1992! Now to go home and try it out.


#33

I too was chosen. Normally I blow off the update for a month or two but since it’s summer and there isn’t much of interest on TV I took the gamble.

My Roku got the notification. Everything seemed to go fine and the Roku still worked after the update.

So I decided to connect using Chrome on a PC. Start Chrome and tried to connect. Had the spinning connect wheel for 5-10 minutes with no connect. I only have 19 channels and 7 recordings on the tablo unit.

Had to abort Chrome, restart Chrome, delete the tablo unit and all Chrome app data, restart chrome before the connect and resync worked.


#34

Mine installed flawlessly.


#35

I’m using @snowcat’s hack of using beta.tablotv.com with VLC media player, otherwise with 5.1 enabled – sound doesn’t work on Samsung S8 or S9 (even with Surround/Atmos enabled on the S9).

Not ideal, but I think I’d rather have 5.1 and not ideal setup on my phone vs. no 5.1.


#36

Am I the only one wondering about 5.1 and phone being used in the same sentence?


#37

LOL
No, me, too.
I don’t even use surround sound with my stereo system.
I mean, I loved it when I temporarily set it up for a couple movies that were auditorily immersive, but stereo is the way to go, bro. :wink:


#38

How many tablo users actually have spent $400-$1200 for a 5 speaker setup where the speakers are properly setup with the listener in the center? I don’t live that close to my neighbors but I can imagine them coming over wondering what’s going on when I crank up some horror movie.

Or users that have 5.1 enabled on a phone. Is that really 5.1?


#39

Nevermind… understood. Just need a phone with 5 speakers and a subwoofer.


#40

Can I come over for kartoons? :grin:
