Let’s say that you are a Simpsons fan. New episodes are on FOX on Sundays, but repeats from other seasons are on a different channel on weeknights. How would you want the Tablo to handle saving “x” episodes?
One big issue with the Tablo and “saving x episodes” is that the Tablo doesn’t care what channel shows are on. Most DVRs let you pick which channel to record, so I could see the Tablo struggling. One way around it is to add more screens so you can specify “Save X recordings per season”, and I bet that is what Tablo is considering. Either that, or the Tablo will finally allow the user to set up recordings per channel.
