Tablo Quad HDMI. On some TV shows playback spins continually. If I return to Recordings, then try again, sometimes it starts right away, sometimes it spins again, and sooner or later going back and forth, it plays back. Also, sometimes if I FF and Rew a few times, it start playback without the foolishness.
WD Hard drive 1.5 TB, 4 years old. Worked perfectly as external USB on different computers,
I’m open for suggestions on if any external SSDs are quieter/better and very dependable. I use Seagate Iron Wolf Pros on my NAS drives. They aren’t noisy but SSDs are quieter.
I was asking because Live TV is one of the things you can do without having the drive attached (since playing back would be from the drive and recording would be to the drive). See this reply in another thread…
