Since I am STILL waiting with abated breath for my Tablo QUAD, I have a “Burning Question” about what seems to be a possibly annoying behavior regarding what happens when there is a disturbance in the incoming signal during an OTA Recording, to wit:
I think I have read in this Forum that, if there is even the SLIGHTEST anomaly in the incoming signal, that the Tablo software ENDS a Recording-In-Progress, and (I think) starts a new Recording starting from that point forward. Is this true?
If the above IS true, is there any sort of automatic Post-Processing that attempts to Concatenate those “Segments” together; so that Playback can be achieved without having to keep loading/playing multiple “Segments”, or does the User have to chase-around after those (possibly multiple) Segments?
Or, in the alternative, is there any place in Tablo Setup where you can set a (Hopefully Per-Channel) “Error Rate Threshold”’; so that minor Errors would just be “coasted-through”, possibly with the insertion of black and/or silent frames during the “Error Event”, but that a separate “Segment” would NOT be created (unless the threshold was exceeded, of course)?
So, what, if any, provisions for the very-real possibility of momentary OTA signal interruptions/corruptions does the Tablo software/firmware currently employ? I ask partially because I live on a “flight path” for a major Airport, and even with a normally rock-solid signal, the “reflections” off the airplane body cause “picket-fencing” of the OTA signal (those of us old enough will remember this effect from the old days, when everything was OTA). So, since that often causes a couple of frames of stutter/pixellezation of even the strongest channels, does that mean that I can never expect to get a decent OTA recording during the times of airplane traffic over my house?
