Happy Thursday Tablo fans!
A new firmware update is on the way for your Tablo… and it’s got a big fat feature that you guys have been asking for:
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 or so.
Here’s what you can expect…
Release Notes for Tablo Firmware 2.2.22
• Support for 5.1 Surround Sound passthrough
• Workaround for Fire TV 4K/Fire TV Cube video stuttering issue
• Improves reliability of new firmware update downloads on poor network connections
• 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.
If you own an Amazon Fire TV 4K dongle or the new Amazon Fire TV Cube, you’ll also be happy to hear that Tablo firmware 2.2.22 includes a workaround that solves the video stuttering behavior caused by a video decoding issue in the Fire TV firmware. Enjoy!
