Since repairing a device with a Tablo when a user is away from home is difficult, and logins (user\password) may not provide the device locality needed for out of state transmission, perhaps a different approach may work.
Suppose that a user is required firstly and only once to pair a device with a Tablo at home. The Tablo then sends any pairing info to its web Nuvyyo server for storage. Perhaps using the credentials of the device (eg. serial number) and user account.
Subsequently if a user needs to repair the device and Tablo from a remote site, the device sends a “repair me” to Nuvyyo’s site identifying itself which then effects a repairing with the Tablo at the user’s home. This way Nuvyyo acts as a middle man.
I’m sure there are difficulties and hindrances to performing such a repairing service. However this may be a solution since it doesn’t appear that out-of-state logins would be politically feasible with the FCC…
Any comments and observations would be welcome to critically analyze such an approach.
