Play Live TV on PC without a Live Internet connection using VLC player

I stumble upon a way to play Live TV on a PC without a Live Internet connection…
If you go to your FireFox browser and type my.tablotv.com you will need a live internet connection for your PC to find the tablo on your LAN but if you disable the Flash extension on FireFox, it will give you a LAN URL where you can cut and paste it into a VLC player…

The LAN URL looks something like this on my LAN
http://192.168.1.151:80/stream/pl.m3u8?NWCkz6rqw2ut-0HVreKVMw

Now you can watch Live TV on a PC without a Live Internet connection, haven’t try this with recordings yet but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.  Now if someone can make an easy plugin for VLC then it would be great…No more “skipped frames” when playing 1080p on PC using a browser

some background info and instruction can be found in this thread
