Tablo connected via cat5
Roku on 5G wifi
Roku Ultra | HD/4K/HDR
Tablo 2 tuner, 2.2.30
720 3 Mbps recording quality
Because I’ve always had intermittent “small spinning circle” problems I finally got hold of a 50ft cat5 cable and hard wired the tablo to my router. A bit of a safety hazard with a loose cable running across the floor and up the stairs but seemed to have fixed the spinning, pausing issues i kept having.
Last night … started to get intermittent small spinning circle and pausing all over again, even when hard wired. Rebooted the router, & the Roku … same thing.
Is it possible that it was connecting via wifi even throught it was plugged in? When I unplugged the cat5 from the Tablo, the behavior was exactly the same. For the last week the Cat5 connection allowed me to watch without any issues.
Is there a way to ensure the Tablo is connecting via the cable vs. wifi?
