I found a way to break Tablo Connect with Google Chrome browser already synced to that Tablo.
Using Google Chrome browser, go to my.tablotv.com
After connecting to the Tablo, select ‘Disconnect’ from the menu.
After disconnecting, select the red X, which will unsync the browser from the Tablo.
Then connect to the Tablo, let it sync, and go to the Settings page.
You know how in the Settings page the ‘Startup section:’ is reset to ‘Prime Time’ by default when you first sync your browser with the Tablo?
A similar thing occurs with ‘Remote Streaming Quality:’, which resets to its default of 1 Mbps.
So, if you enable remote streaming, but change the remote streaming quality from 1 Mbps to anything else, the Tablo will reset it back to 1 Mbps.
Another unpleasant side effect is that each remote streaming quality selection seems to require different router ports to forward to.
So, if you’re Tablo is unable to utilize your router’s UPnP feature, like mine, then the hardcoded port forwarding that worked earlier, suddenly fails when you perform the operations I described above.
The Tablo’s remote streaming quality is a global setting affecting all devices connecting to the Tablo outside the Tablo’s network, and should not change just because a browser synced with the Tablo.
It’s kinda true.
I changed my remote quality setting yesterday, and one of the ports required changed, so I had to update my router’s port forwarding configuration.
But now changing the remote quality setting doesn’t have the same effect.
As long as it’s working…
