Hi @j321cordcut - here’s a few things for you to check:
Correction… Roku2 is Wifi (only the 3 has an Ethernet port, but my 3 is set up on Wifi as well)
Following… same problem with a Roku 2
Same issue with Roku 1
old school Roku LT wifi only having same issue.
@jbanks I can get in the tablo app, go to live tv, see all the channels, click a channel, it buffers, but as soon as the black loading screen appears for half second, it kicks back to the tv channel selection menu. Same thing happens when trying to view a recording. My recordings are set to 720p. I thought the recordings and a few channels might work since they aren’t all above 720p but no.
Bump, would like support for this issue.
We've tested and confirmed the latest generation of Rokus, including the Roku 1, 2, 3 and the HDMI stick (though the WiFi antenna on it can be flaky) - for other models, we're still trying to get of a hold of a few, but it can prove difficult with the older generations of the Roku.
We've determined that composite cables are unable to transmit enough data to meet the requirements of an HD video stream. Unfortunately, the Tablo will not be able to output video on a TV that is connected to the streaming device via composite cables.
With the above in mind, don't forget to factor in that everyone's setup (their network) is different, and produces different results.
All of that being said, here are some of the basic troubleshooting techniques you can try to help mitigate this issue:
-Check the firmware on the Roku; update if there are any available
-Uninstall the Tablo channel and re-send it from the Roku owner portal
-Power cycle the Roku
-Factory reset the Roku
I have to report that I tried the factory reset on the Roku LT and it is now working! Cheers!
That seems to do the trick. Awesome!
I’ve got a Roku2 an TabloTV - updated to latest firmware 1.1.B8 and the Roku still will not stream. Have powerbooted the Roku, done factory reset and still having the same issue.
@skytribe - Sorry to hear your Roku 2 is still not working with Tablo.
Have you tried deleting the channel and re-adding it? If you send an email to email@example.com the team will be happy to do some further troubleshooting with you.
