seriously, i'm now wondering if i have misplaced my faith in tablo. after re-configuring my antenna setup, i now have the strongest antenna setup than ever. never have i had all green in every channel that was scanned and found. but despite this, almost every recent recording has been split into as many as a dozen parts for just a one hour show. i have a four-tuner, and 2 or 3 may have been recording simultaneously for these problems to occur. but what's the point of having a four tuner device if it can't record 3 or even 2 shows simultaneously without problems.
and those that aren't split apart are somehow randomly crashing in the middle of playback. and when resuming, it always results in a reconnecting message. and even after that, resuming playback will crash it again. the only way to bypass this is to start playback from the beginning, fast forward past the point of the crash and then i'm able to resume. and this happens at multiple points in a single hour show that is not broken into parts.
i am willing to bet that the 4-tuner $350 ota tivo roamio (lifetime service included) doesn't exhibit these problems.
why is this thing so sensitive to signal problems? at this point, it would be acceptable even just to have it play continuously through the problem sections rather than crashing or creating multiple parts.
