I've had the 4-tuner Tablo for about 3 weeks now. It works great except that it restarts itself every day at 10:05.
Here's the recording schedule:
Channel 64.4, 7:00 -8:00, 8:00 - 9:00;
Ch. 3.2, 9:00 - 10:00;
Ch 43.3, 9:00 - 10:00, 10:00 - 11:00.
All scheduled recordings except for the 10:00 record without any errors. The 10:00 recording reports errors and retries. The message claims "weak signal."
At first I thought the problem might be DHCP, so I reserved 192.168.1.100 for the Tablo. This did not resolve the problem.
Next, I unscheduled today's Ch 43.3 10:00 recording, and substituted it with a Ch 13.1 recording at the same time. (Ch. 13 is very strong signal and records well always). Same thing happened. At 10:05 the Tablo restarted itself.There is a 5 minute recording with no error message, and the rest of the program is proceeding on a second recording.
The Tablo Cat-5 runs from a Linksys switch connected to a Linksys Powerline adapter connected to wall outlet. Here's the coax setup. Wall to surge strip, surge strip to Archer amp/splitter, to TV and Tablo.
I really like the Tablo, and don't want to have to give it up, but this is really annoying, and is a potential deal killer.
