Tablo not found unless hard drive is disconnected after updating firmware

My Tablo is not found after the latest firmware upgrade unless I disconnect the hard drive for storage. Tested numerous times but to no avail. Using Roku for access. Anyone else have this issue? Please advise, thanks!

Maybe the HD went bad. Can you try another?

I did get it to work once with the hard drive and even watched a bit of a recorded show but then exited and tried to start it again and it won’t find the tablo.

Have you turned off the Tablo, router, and Roku. Then restart router, Tablo Roku.

Thank you!!! Tried the magic reboot sequence…seems to be holding out thus far. Recordings are intact. Thanks again.
