Transferring to new hard drive

How do I transfer my recorded programs to a new hard drive?
Using a Mac, btw.

Is this even possible? On a mac?

There are some tools to pull the recordings from the Tablo to save to a Media Library. Some of those work on a Mac. I use SurLaTablo to do that. See Third Party Apps (Rippers etc.) - TabloTV Community

To actually transfer them to a new drive and install that drive in the Tablo is much harder. And requires using a system that can deal with Linux-style file systems (ext3 or ext4 I think). It can be done on a Mac, but requires third-party software. And it’s tricky at best.

Oh, one other thing. I don’t think any of the apps work with the new White Gen4 systems.

Sadly, zero reason to “buy one”. However, I will gladly “receive one”. No guarantees of course. My “thought” is because Scripps is a broadcaster, they’ll make sure this is never possible (that is, even if it’s “possible” for the moment, they’ll fight to make sure it’s not possible in the future).

Yeah, I’m not planning on getting one either. I have an original 4-tuner, and a backup Quad. No HDMI or Gen4 models.
