First let me say that this device has given me many years of great service and the Tablo support team have been trying to help me. I thought sending this out to a wider audience might give me some things to try.
Situation - Owner since 2015, dual original Tablo, indoor Winegard antenna + indoor RCA antenna, south of Milwaukee DTV broadcasts about 30 miles according to AntennaWeb.org.
For years I was recording fine, no issues. I had a dual antenna thing going on with a splitter to use both antennas for reception. I did this because some stations needed a certain orientation for the best signal. I had a good number (4-5) green dots for reception from the Tablo device.
Recently, I started having issues with recordings that would not be long enough for the show, pixelization and skipping. I was told to re-orient the antenna, disconnect the dual antenna set-up, buy a LTE filter and try to find a way to downgrade a channel signal that might be over-powering other stations. None of this has been successful and my Tablo is now not really being counted on for a complete recording of any show.
I even went out and bought an outdoor antenna and moved my Tablo to a protected outdoor area to see if reception would help but that did not work either.
I have seen many things with this unit that make me suspect a hardware issue but the Tablo support people have not confirmed or denied this and the unit is out of warranty anyways.
Sometimes the show still shows it is recording days after it should be over, my keep # setting has been exceeded, shows set to keep 3 episodes have 4 or more in the list. And the thumbnails that usually show up after a recording has had the chance to process are gone most of the time, even days after the recording is done.
I know this is a long post but I am looking for any help with this, especially from the community as you might have seen a similar situation and found a workable solution.
Thanks for reading this so far. Any clarifications required?
