Using Tablo Exporter


#7


#8

It’s just files, you can just delete them, no install or anything

And that error means you do not have java installed for this type of applications


#9

I tried to delete the file on the desktop. This is what I get:


#10

Looks like you can either kill the java.exe task or reboot,


#11

Rebooting did the trick. Thanks for all your help.


#12

I export all my recordings weekly so that should my Tablo fail (and has to be reset) I will still have all the recordings available. I put them on a USB drive I can hook into my Roku for viewing them independently of the Tablo. It’s a form of backup.


#13

That’s a very good idea @MarkKindle…I just don’t know if I’m disciplined enough to follow through.


#14

One of the reasons we do that is my wife is hooked on a PBS show called “Cook’s Country.” She gets plenty of recipes from them. If we ever lost those videos, it would be a disaster. So we archive at least those programs we feel we’ll need in the future.


#15

Since you are on Windows, I would suggest looking at Tablo Ripper. That way you can set it and forget it :wink:


#16

In an attempt to avoid cross-posting rules (another user suggested I might get the app author (or someone knowlegeable) at this thread) I’ll just post a link describing my problem with an increasing number of Tablo files that fail upon export, and why that might be (fyi, I’m running TExporter on a networked Mac (10.12.3) while the Tablo itself is connected to another Mac (10.10.5)):


#17

I don’t believe there are any posting rules at all to be honest.

But, I would need for you to run via command line with the -debug switch to see what is happening on the failing recording.

Look near the top of this thread to see how to do that.


#18

Here’s what the app is outputting with an open cli (I think I did this right? I just ran the command listed at the top of this thread with -debug)

Ok, may need to wait for next weeks SNL to see if I can duplicate. Does it do this on all SNL recorded after the firmware update? Any other shows?


#20

Also, please download the latest version see if that fixes the issue
Tablo Exporter Version 0.07a build 129


#21

Oh, cool! DIdn’t realize there was a newer version.
Re: your question…I haven’t applied the newest fw update yet, and I don’t recall when the 2.12 was installed (I don’t think I’ve allowed a firmware update since I started using Tablo in January?)
Also, the file I chose for the debug was simply the first one I noticed the problem with. I got rather random results with other show-files since then, some extract just fine, others fail, within the March/April time period. Roughly two weeks ago, I discovered that my Tablo had locked up, requiring a reboot. Since then, new recordings have been made, including yesterdays SNL which…is exporting successfully! I also successfully exported some Charlie Rose segments recorded since the crash.

So, maybe I’m good after the reboot? But does that mean the pre-crash files are likely lost for good? They play back fine in the Tablo web app.

Anyway, I’ll take your advice and dl the latest build. Thanks for your help!


#22

No, they should be fine too, assuming no data corruption


#23

Indeed! I’m happy to report previously un-downloadable files are now dl’ing with the latest build (129). I really didn’t expect that. Thanks for putting a smile on my face this eve, and for the trouble you took to offer help!

I had this running fine on an old version of Ubuntu. I have just reinstalled ubuntu and am running 18.04. I also have openjdk Java 11 (10.0.2). When I try to run “java -jar TabloExporter.jar” I get this error:

BlockquoteError: Could not find or load main class tabloexport.TabloExport
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application


#25

Using the full path the the jar? What version of Java?


#26

Solved…

Getting Oracle Javafx 11 working is a little beyond me right now.

I installed Oracle Java 8, which still includes fx, and made it the default. Works great now.
