There is an update now available for our Android-based apps which include Android phones, tablets, Android TV and FireTV. Your devices should receive an update notification for version 3000260 in the coming hours.
Updates are as follows:
Fix for unexpected stoppage of the app on smartphone devices
Changes skip buttons back to 30 seconds FFW, 20 seconds rewind on touch UIs
Fix for scheduled series not showing up if no upcoming airings within next two weeks
Fix for date and time field errors in manual scheduling
Fix for pre-filling show titles during manual scheduling
@getcashmoney - It shouldn’t have happened in the first place but it was a difficult to reproduce and intermittent bug (at least in our tests). We DID fix the case we are able to reproduce so let us know.
Great improvements! Any chance of adding either of these features to the Android TV app:
Recommending TV Content
Android TV allows for content recommendations to appear as the first row of the TV home screen. Perhaps Tablo could utilize this for upcoming live TV or recorded shows? Link to the code below:
It is likely possible, but not as simple as it sounds. HDHomeRun records the native MPEG2 stream in MPEG2 video. Tablo records the native MPEG2 stream in h.264 video. So there’s different video formats.
From testing this last night, I finally no longer have to hit play again after selecting a recording to playback. Everything seems even quicker compared to the last app on Shield TV. There is some progress to be made in speed still (and further integrations into Android TV), but its still far and away the best experience I have had with Tablo to date. Thanks for the update!
Big big big issue though is after a fresh install of the app, it changed my “Max Recording Quality” setting to SD 480 - 2 Mbps. Very bad and resulted in one of my recordings being SD rather than 720p. Luckily I caught it before too many recordings were of low quality.

All 3 of my FireTV boxes and one FireTV stick updated with the new Tablo app at different time last night and my “Max Recording Quality” setting never changes, it remains at 1080p so something else is going on with your setup.
