Ok, so I run macs in the house and many of the products are for pc’s.
I have been using an app or script from the forums to take shows off the Tablo drive and covert them to mp4. I can remember the name of it it for the life of me......but I found the info here on the forum. This a manual process for me. Running the app, waiting for the conversion, moving to a usb drive. Going from usb drive to plex server and loading the shows myself onto my plex server.
Someone also created a docker image that would do this, alas, I cannot figure out how to get it setup.
What I am looking for is the ability to call the Tablo and this may not be the right term. Or better yet, something that runs at night and takes that nights recordings, converts them to mp4 for direct play via plex. Moves the shows to my plex server in the proper location/folders. I can live with manually skipping commercials using thumbnails.
I’m looking for way to get shows off the Tablo hd and moved into plex nightly or early morning. And have it be an automated process.
I am computer literate, but some of this is beyond me. We use tablo for mostly dvr. News and live sports so the slow channel changes are not an issue. Once watch, we watch. We do not channel surf.
We can take it off line if you want to pm me for more information. I am happy to test and help out any way. If not I’ll continue doing what I am doing..........
Thanks for your work and positive response. Hope I am more clear this time around.
