I am trying to replace a 4-tuner Tivo Roamio with Tablo Quad. I am using an Ethernet connection and a Roku3. I installed a new Toshiba drive into the Tablo internal drive bay. Everything has the latest software/firmware. I have hooked everything up and double-checked all the connections. Downloading the channel guide worked fine and I have 5 green dots on most all OTA channels. The installation of the Tablo app on my Roku went fine and I set up the Tablo with the app on the Tablo website. Everything went smoothly. But the Tablo has terrible pixelation issues to the point that it is unwatchable. And with some channels I get a “signal is not strong enough” message. I have tried everything I can think of and reset everything in the chain. My Internet download speed is 86 Mbps. And I have reset and rebooted the Tablo Quad.
I can take the exact same Ethernet cable and the same antenna connection, hook that back up to my TIVO and everything works beautifully. If I put those same connections into the Tablo everything is pixelated. So the only variables are the Tablo and the Roku 3. The Roku 3 streams everything flawlessly. That leaves the Tablo as the only variable. And while it does have 4 tuners, so does my TIVO.
The fact that Tablo has this big orange card in the box saying “Before returning to the store STOP… Contact us for help” is incredibly frustrating as their support hours are limited and they are not open on weekends.
If anyone has a solution for this you will make me a very happy camper!!!
