Yes, manual recordings lack ‘program type’ details and therefore are ineligible.
Network (i.e. PBS), program type (i.e. manual), and show-level (i.e. Bonanza) filtering are all done at the Tablo device level, meaning those recordings will NOT be uploaded to the Commercial Skip Server for processing.
The only potential difference is for shows that are being removed from the filtered list… Let’s take Jimmy Kimmel for example… It’s the last Late Night show returning to a regular in-studio format and is still filtered at the moment.
Once it returns and is removed, in order for it to be uploaded ANY OTHER eligible show must be uploaded successfully first in order for the filtered list to be updated and therefore allow uploads of Jimmy Kimmel again.
