So just in case anyone was thinking of doing this, I can save you some time.
Delay in population almost sounds like a network issue, is your Fire TV connected via wired or wireless network? Aside from slowness issue which sounds like a no go, an air mouse is an option until they release a dedicated app which functions with a remote. As it sounds like you are comfortable sideloading apps with your Fire TV, how about loading Chrome browser and seeing if you can access my.tablotv.com ? Try using USB mouse
I would agree with you on the populating issue as far as wifi, but everything else in the house that runs tablo on wifi is quite a bit quicker. We are talking minutes to load the artwork, not just like twice as long. That said, I have an ethernet cord that will reach, so maybe I will play with it a little more.
@jbanks25 - Still interested in testing out the Plex Channel for FireTV ?
@PiX64 Ready when you are… I’ve got unsupported devices for days and all the Plex infrastructure I could ever want
@jbanks25 - My fire isn’t currently plugged in but I think I remember using USB mouse and keyboard. According to the list at XDA, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2756608 Chrome browser should work and may be worth trying to access my.tablotv.com
@7up @PiX64 So in short, Chrome and the webapp work as long as you have a mouse hooked up. The caveat here is that there appears to be no way to fast forward or rewind. Clicking on the progress bar with the mouse does nothing. Firefox does not work mouse or otherwise. The lag I was experiencing appears to be totally due to Firefox. So side loaded Chrome with my.tablotv.com + a mouse is very similar to my Chromebook watching experience (caveat from above aside). Fun stuff. Side note, I was really happy with the whole mouse thing because I was able to log into the History Channel app I wanted.
download the apk
Waiting to hear back from Tablo on getting g u the beta firmware so u can run Plex channel
I have no time to play until this weekend but I’ll try and sideload it and see if I get same result
is there an eta for a dedicated fire tv app for tablo?
I had beer league hockey championship late into the evening last night...
Did you win???
@Tablotv Sadly after dominating the regular season we fell apart and finished 3rd. No worries though, I play pretty much year around. Skate on Wed. and tend net on Sundays.
Darn! Hope you get a chance for redemption next year!
Finally found some time to experiment with TabloTV and FireTV.

Chrome browser on phones has same issues with “full screen”… for right now “official” support is that you merely run it inside of a browser window (not full screen).
