I've got a 4 tuner Tablo purchased about 2 years ago as a refurbished model. It has a 1 TB WD Elements drive attached and we use Roku for recordings playback and live TV through the Tablo channel.. For the most part, everything works OK. While it doesn't happen often (once every 2 months or so), the unit freezes. If it freezes while we're on vacation like this past August, none of the recordings we scheduled are completed. Also, once we returned from vacation, none of our devices (4 Samsung Android phones, a Samsung tablet, an Acer PC, both Roku units) could connect to it. Pushing the blue button had no effect. Finally, I pulled the plug to reboot and everything started working again.
Do I need to schedule a periodic (once a month) reboot to try to avoid this significant inconvenience?
