Release notes for Tablo (4th Gen Only) Firmware 2.2.46
• Improvements to autodelete algorithm to better manage internal storage space
• Fix for Wi-Fi setup for customers with a small subset of router types
• Change to ‘extend live recordings’ setting
• Other bug fixes and improvements
NOTE: The white LED will blink until the Tablo has checked in to our servers.
The change to the ‘extend live recordings’ setting is to reduce the additional time added to a live recording to just 30 minutes. Season/series finales have also been omitted.
Currently, the setting automatically adds 50% of the total scheduled time for live recordings and season/series finales, up to a maximum of 2 hours.
Now it will be limited to just 30 minutes on any live recording. However, if you’d like to add up to 3 extra hours of recording time to any program, you can do so via the airing/series recording options.
Where did this change come from. Most live events are sports. I get 11-12 NCAA foorball games every saturday. I don’t do series recordings but select the events I want to record. So series recordings option doesn’t work. A user could use manual recordings but I don’t think that is working either. More reasons to stay with legacy devices or move on.
To clarify, all the recording options including extending time are available on both SERIES and SINGLE AIRING schedules. So with your football example, it would be possible to extend just a single game.
So every live sports event I have to take the extra steps.
To show you how ridiculous the 30 minute auto live extension is consider that any U.S. out door event between may and october is subject to lightning deleay. The minimum time of a lightning delay is 20 minutes. What does that say about a 30 minute extend time - useless.
FOX,ABC, and CBS all do back to back college football broadcasts where the second and subsequent game is delayed by the extending of a previous game. What does that say about a 30 minute extend time - useless.
Good thing I don’t watch sports . I do agree however. It seems like a better option would be to let the user select how long an automatic extend is - 30 min, 60 min,…up to 3 hours, with the default being 30 min. 50% seemed like an odd choice though.
Then make it one settable value selected in the settings menu rather then having to set a value on every recording Time for the spouse to dust off plex on shield and make sure the software is up to date…
Good news and bad news. The good news is now the Tablo is filling out the screen properly instead of squaring into a corner. Also my main TV seems to be working fine with it. However, my secondary TV still has a problem of playing for a few seconds, then the picture freezes and that’s that. It is an older set that is 740p. I have the Roku express with both sets. I’ve restarted the Roku with new firmware but that second TV just won’t play ball.
It’s a tablo firmware update not an app update. If you had a different device you could connect and see if the firmware update was done and the app didn’t display the message. Of you could exit the app and restart the app and see if the update is done. Or …
This firmware update is STILL not allowing me to watch recorded shows on my Fire Stick apps. Can you please provide an update on what is happening with your attempts to fix this and how long you expect it to take?
I’ve had Tablo 4 for about a month. It connected to my TV with ChromCast.
Everything worked very well until your recent 2.2.46 update.
Since the update:
Tablo started to lock up.
I lost all of my scheduled saved programs.
The Tablo would not connect through Wifi.
I switched to wired connection and it connected and scanned for channels. It found 72 channels and started to load the guide.
The guide only shows schedules for the 6 lowest channels.
To see other channels I have to pick the channel from the channel column. I can not see the schedule.
I can see the schedule on my phone through the Tablo app.
I contacted help with Gmail and got a ticket, but no help.
