Been dealing with Tablo hangs for a few weeks now and found while trying to watch a football game today (in Roku) it appears to be the Roku live tv mode and new auto delete feature that causes my Tablo to reset and then go stupid.
It’s a reset because Roku fails to load the live TV stream after 30 seconds or so then says it can’t connect to Tablo…
It goes stupid because then after reconnecting to the Tablo Roku channel, the recordings are missing all their graphics and they all fail to play… They present some error message in a flash (to fast to read) and that’s it.
A reset allows the same behavior to repeat. So rather than continue to bang my head against the same wall… I made an educated guess and deleted a dozen or so episodes and tried live tv again. It failed the same way, the recordings are missing their graphics, but this time… recordings played. So that’s something.
We all got frustrated and have each moved on with our day doing something other than debugging Tablo or watching football.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed auto-delete maintains around 12GB of free disk space, today I now have 25GB free… Which seems to be enough to keep the Tablo from going totally stupid after it self-resets via Roku interactions… So, I wonder how much space live TV really needs?
