I have scheduled NFL games. There are so many of them that I have found myself disabling some. Today I discovered a conflict but was just a little too late.
I deleted the recording of all the NFL games that were to begin recording at 1:00PM BUT I turned off the scheduled record at about 1:08PM. And then I enabled the record of my desired program.
Then I went to watch another program that I wanted but there was a message that a tuner was not available.
Then when I checked that program a second time the message was Player error weak signal. Checked on my TV set and found a perfect picture.
So I went to a second physical channel on the Tablo and got the Player error weak signal message again. A third physical channel reported the same error.
I exited the Tablo app completely, pressed the blue reset button on the Tablo Dual, and after a delay I reopened the Tablo app. That had returned the Tablo to a known state and operation returned to normal.
It appears that:
- Stopping a scheduled recording after it has begun to record does not seem to mark the tuner available in the Tablo.
- When the Tablo recognizes that an error has occurred but does not recognize the cause or gets confused about the cause, it just reports Player error weak signal.
