Hey there!! So my Tablo had a freak-fest last night. After a solid 9-months or so of almost issue free use, the Tablo seriously over-heated and corrupted every recording for the 9pm last night (3 programs) None of the programs are watchable and it is clearly not an antenna issue. I unplugged the unit last night and let it cool. This morning the 9pm recordings were unwatchable, but my older recordings are fine. The unit is very hot, so I opted to just pull the internal drive. I have 2 issues I’m looking to resolve:
Can I at some point pop the old internal drive back in and recover the good recordings? Or should I just assume the drive has been utterly destroyed and it isn’t just a few recordings that were affected?
I have added an external drive (so hopefully I will eliminate the overheating issue. But, in my recordings sections, all my old recordings are still showing up there. I’m assuming this is on a small native drive that holds the basic information and points to the hard drive (which, obviously, is no longer there). Is there a way to remove all those shortcuts or do I need to manually remove them? I don’t really want to do a factory reset if I can avoid doing that.
My tech grammar is rated at kindergarten - so if I have used incorrect terminology, please forgive me. I am trying to learn, but am by no means any sort of an expert.
Thanks so much.
