I love TabloTV except for not being able to specify that I only want to keep the latest X number of episodes when I set up a recording. Just having options for keeping the latest 1, 5, or 10 episodes would suffice.
Why is this important to me? Because once a week I must use the Tablo web app to go through all my recordings, deleting older episodes that I'll never have time to watch. I can only speed this process up by marking each unwanted episodes as watched then deleting all watched episodes which makes it just a little faster than deleting them individually.
This is an unnecessary weekly hassle. I paid $300 for this Tablo DVR assuming that it would have this very basic feature. If you are not going to provide this, I would like to return it and get a $150 refund on my lifetime guide and then use my (older generation) TiVo box that has this feature for $13/month for 3 years for the same $450. Maybe by then you will have this feature?
My only alternative to this is to never delete anything, let my 2TB hard drive fil up, and let Tablo delete the oldest episodes to make room for the new ones. My concern about this is that it could create performance issues that are common to any full hard drive.
A multitude of Tablo users have been requesting this feature for over a year now. Why do we not have this yet? I had this feature on my TiVo, Dish Network, Time Warner, and AT&T U-Verse equipment. Come on Tablo give us this feature! NOW!
