So I’ve had the Tablo since around Christmas. It’s worked really well but I will say I’m not sure how much live tv I tried to watch through it and maybe we just started really watching ABC, but from what I remember, all of this used to work really well.
Nothing has changed. I have a Mohu Sky in my attic running directly (not split) to the Tablo. I have a 4 Eero wifi network that is rock solid and is running about 80mbps. No other network issues streaming other apps or playing my Sonos system. I noticed a problem when my wife was trying to watch recordings of the bachelorette on ABC. It was almost like buffering and hanging up like the show was corrupted (not like normal pixellation we sometimes see). I didn’t spend a lot of time on it because we have Hulu and she can watch that show on there.
Anyway, now I’m trying to figure it out as it’s continuing to happen. Any ideas on things I can try? I don’t recall changing any settings and I have it set to the recommended recording quality (HD 720 5mbps). If I run the cable directly to the TV, every channel is crystal clear.
So in summary, live TV has trouble playing through Tablo on almost every channel, but most recordings are fine. Recordings on ABC have problems…recently.
