I have an early model Tablo Quad with external hard drive. It has worked flawlessly for several years. Then a few months ago I updated the firmware. After that, I can’t connect to it.
When starting up, the indicator light will blink slowly at first (starting up blink), then the 3x per second blink (loading software). Then it changes to a blink that is about 2x per second for a few minutes, and after that the led light will change to solid. So it seems to be at least partially powering up. Then eventually it starts blinking the SOS message.
I try to follow the sequence to connect via WiFi, but it doesn’t broadcast a Tablo_xxxx signal. I don’t have a way to connect via ethernet. My router is too far away and there’s no ethernet cable long enough.
I haven’t cared much about this because there’s not been much I wanted to record in a while. But with some new stuff coming out soon, it would be nice to have it working again.
I’ve tried rebooting, even resetting with the reset button in back. Not sure what else to try.
