I am a new Tablo user, and am looking to the wider community of Tablo users to see if I can eliminate a problem I am having. It seems like a common problem, yet I haven't seen an exact match in my searches here so far. I greatly appreciate any advice you can provide!
The problem: I have recently noticed periodic re-loading through OTA broadcasts on nearly every channel. The channel will go to the reloading progress bar, or worse yet, will sometimes do the "Reconnecting to Tablo" screen instead, which will crash exit the channel and kick me back to the guide. This didn't happen the first week or so of my set up, but started recently during some windy weather, and hasn't improved now that the weather has cleared.
Here are the details of my setup:
1. Tablo four-tuner hard-wired through ethernet to dual-band Linksys WRT 1200AC router with high-gain antennae (signal strength is good). TV is about 50 feet from Tablo and router, though there are three interior walls between them. Hard drive is brand new Western Digital 2 TB.
2. TV uses brand new Roku Ultlra and Tablo Roku app. Roku connects to Tablo over wi-fi network. Signal is strong.
3. Antenna is roof-mounted Antennas Direct Clearstream 4V with Winegard Boost XT pre-amp. We live about 23 miles due-west of Chicago's Loop (where most of our channels broadcast from), and have enjoyed strong signal strength. Signal strength was often good before with just an indoor antenna.
4. Tablo settings: Recommended 720p recording, fast live TV start up turned off.
So where do I start? Has anyone had similar issues with the "Reconnecting to Tablo" and getting booted from channels? I have double checked all of the connections and cords, and now wonder if I should concentrate first on the antenna signal or the wifi signal... or perhaps Spring's new leaves are part of the problem? I'm not sure I can do much to boost antenna signal... I have a highly-rated antenna mounted on the roof and using an amplifier, and am in a major metropolitan area at a higher elevation.
Thank you for your time and help! Let me know if any other information is helpful.
