I was watching a recording of a TV episode before the live broadcast was over. The Tablo froze and needed to be unplugged before I was able to connect again. Is the above a know issue or can I watch the recording before the live show is over?
I'm a new user and still learning.Thanks,Alan
Yes you can watch in progress recordings.
When you say the Tablo froze? How did know the Tablo itself froze?
The app you were using for playback might freeze, but did you try accessing the Tablo from another app.
I was not able to watch Live TV or recordings. They would get to the point of retrieving or loading and just hang there. This was the case on 2 of our TV's, I use Roku sticks on all TV's. Also could not connect to Tablo from PC. After I unplugged/plugged in the Tablo unit all was back to normal. I have had issues trying to watch recordings in progress before but did not lockup the Tablo like tonight.
Did this happen after you paused it for awhile?
This issue seems to appear when fast forwarding the recording. Sometimes towards the point where the recording is close to catching up with the live broadcast, but this is not always the situation.
This sounds like a simular problem reported on an other thread. It has occurred several times for me and not necessarily when l am getting close to the live time. I back out of the session that I am watching and come back later to finish. When I back out, I can watch other recorded programs. The program being recorded is not interupted but records without error. It seems to happen when I fast forward, then put the show on hold and all four of my tuners are busy recording.
Glad to know this isn't just happening to me, but not that this seems to be an issue. Hopefully this will be resolved in future updates.
What hard drive are you using, I have a 3T WD Passport.
A 2T WD Elements
I wish I had gone that way. I have been wondering if my choice in hard drives was part of my problem.
From what I understand, the WD Elements HD is the preferred drive.
I've had this same issue with a Seagate Backup Plus 5TB drive.
I wonder if this issue is related to this one?
