I have a two tuner tablo, that I mostly watch from either of two Amazon Fire Sticks. This is a recent purchase, and until just recently we haven't really watched it very much. But as we intend to finally cancel DirecTV in the next few days, we've been watching it a lot more.
Yesterday it did something strange. In both sticks. When I attempted to exit the Tablo app, the app restarted. Black screen, brief white screen, then back to live TV. This was after confirming that I really did want to exit the app. Neither the Back or Home buttons were able to successfully exit.
On the other hand, the app has seemingly exitted all by itself several times. I briefly calmed it down and regained control by rebooting both sticks.
The Tablo is running the recent v2.2.16 firmware, it rebooted for an update just last week. I believe I saw the sticks both take an update of the app as well. I can find their revisions and update this as needed.
From reading the forum, this may be a strange manifestation of the problem with a tuning in a weak station. It appears that KTTV has gone wonky for me here in the LA basin. I know I need to relocate my antenna, that is on my todo list. But KTTV had all five green dots the last time I checked a month ago, so I had no reason to suspect that attempting to watch the 10pm news would cause so much "amusement".
Overall I'm very pleased with the Tablo when everything is working. Having now spent a couple of days switching among Amazon Streaming, Tablo, and Sling (and the occasional dive into PlutoTV) all on the Fire Stick, I can say that Tablo's UI is second only to the native Amazon Streaming, and generally beats Sling handily. (Don't get me started on PlutoTV on the stick. It watches. Barely.)
Any thoughts on what I can do?
