So I get the weekly cord cutting email from Tablo. In the latest one it said… " If your local network stays active, you should be able to use this handy trick to watch your Tablo and other content stored locally as you wait for the internet to come back online."
I thought Tablo wouldn’t work w/o Internet either? I know I’ve used the method outlined to watch Plex, but never tried Tablo.
It’s complicated. Computers definitely will not run without internet, since it goes out to my.tablotv.com to connect.
The Roku is the one I have tested a lot on. Losing just internet on the Roku causes no problems at all (test by unplugging cable modem from router). But if you disconnect your cable modem and then reboot the router (simulating a loss of power), the Roku won’t connect to your Tablo. That is one reason I have my cable modem and router on a UPS to be safe.
Sort of. If you already have the web app loaded in a browser window, and it’s connected to the Tablo, then it’ll work even if the Internet goes away. I keep a Chrome tab with Tablo open all the time, and it’s continued to work even with an outage.
