I’ve been using the Tablo Preview app with my 2017 NVIDIA Shields (all with the latest updates) for what seems like a long time now. I have the 4-tuner Tablo, the one that’s sold refurbished on the Tablo web site. Lately I’ve been getting a couple of disconnects from the Tablo during a half-hour show, and eventually get frustrated and switch to the same channel on Youtube TV to avoid interruptions. Youtube TV streaming is perfect, of course, never a problem. This Tablo Preview app behavior is not acceptable, I have an OTA antenna to help with data cap issues from my ISP. And I also like the Tablo DVR functionality.
I have no idea how to troubleshoot this, other than switching back to the mainline Tablo app, which I’ll try this coming week. I hate to do that, since I lose the on-screen channel changer that is triggered by the up arrow on the remote. And will have to go out of the show that I’m watching and back to the Guide to find out what else is on, or what’s next.
I’m about ready to chuck the Tablo and go with a different OTA tuner setup if this continues.
My question is whether other NVIDIA Shield users are seeing this, or if my Tablo has gone 'round the bend, as it were?
I could also revert to my Roku Ultra and try the Tablo app on that, but I like the NVIDIA a whole lot better than the Roku, which is why I paid the higher price for it…everything works great on the NVIDIA Shields except the Tablo Preview app.
So am I the only one seeing this? If not, is the mainline Tablo app working better for folks?
