Tablo Exporter - Export Tablo Recordings



Removed all previous downloads of (1)Tablo Exporter and (2)FFMpeg. Then downloaded them from -

(As previously posted)

(particularly the ‘dmg’ version)

I had used (1) before, but only used (2) this last time. This time I was successful for what ever reason.

Thanks all!


Glad you got it working!


Great to hear that! The .dmg is the proper way to install an executable on a Mac. Unpacking other versions (unzipping, untarring, etc.) doesn’t always install all the dependencies and set all the paths. I have a Mac Mini and should have remembered that.


This is great, thank you for the update!!!


Is there an Apple Mac equivalent to MCEBuddy?


I looked a while back and did not see anything that was any good to be honest. But that was a while ago


Thanks for the updates Jestep!


Recently movies haven’t been naming in the Plex format. TV shows appear to still work, but not movies. I noticed it after the update to the new firmware and your software.


Hmm, that is interesting as the naming did not change.

I will take a look. However, give me some time as I may not be able to get to it for about a week


Not a problem. It isn’t too much trouble to do it myself, but just thought I’d mention it. Let me know if you need any logs when you start getting into it.


What is it doing anyway? Can you give me an example?


Just outputs the name of the movie, without the year in parenthesis.


ok, I will look thanks


Ok can you give a shot??


That seemed to work. I think the problem was that it wasn’t classifying movies as movies, they were unknown.

This new version since the firmware update still seems to take a few minutes to open, even though I just opened it last night. Any reason why it hasn’t gotten a lot quicker?


Maybe delete the recordings.db file? It will recreate the file.

Maybe it was corrupt or something?


Well, I just made a new one with the new tabloexporter file. I always create a totally new folder whenever I download a new file from you. It still isn’t responsive and takes several minutes with this brand new one (after the first time that took forever!). I just have to walk away and come back after a little bit.


That is strange, maybe run it in debug mode see if it gives us any clues. How many shows do you have recorded?


So, the exporter was working just two weeks ago but now whenever I try to download something I get a “fail” message. Any ideas? I tried reading recent posts and looks like no one else is reporting sudden failures.


Try running it in debug mode so we can see what it might be.

Run via the console or command line with java -jar TabloExport.jar -debug
