Can I record programs while connected to home network, then take my tablo and external drive with recorded programs and direct connect to TV and playback recorded programs, without a wifi or network (remote location in my rv?).
No you can’t the tablo would have to on WiFi in order to steam. If you take a router with you you could but the program guide would not up date with out out the internet.
Well, if your tablo has an HDMI port to “direct conne tio to TV”, then you can.
