I understand how you feel.
I accept the fact that a weak signal will cause my Tablo to crash, and reboot.
I work around that issue by making sure I keep only strong signal channels, but even then a borderline strong signal turns too weak, then crash, and reboot.
However, those instances for me are occassional, and I'm not as passionate about them as I was in the beginning.
Amazing how you can get tolerant of something over time that used to make your head explode.
That being said, my 1st Tablo was purchased 3 years ago.
Now, we have a total of 3: 2 Tablo Quads; 1 Tablo Dual.
We use the hell out of them.
I'm happy, wife's happy, mom's happy... you know how hard it is to make my wife happy?
They're not perfect, but they're close enough for me... my wife, and mom, not the Tablo.
The Tablo is perfect.
