I have tried many solutions and for what it is worth, Tablo works best.
- Best playback quality
- Commercial skip seems to work on most programs
- Tuners perform better than HD Homerun, AirTV, whatever USB Dongle Dish network supplies for OTA on their Satellite Tuner box, Hauppauge OTA Tuner. When connecting all of these Tuners into the same Antenna coax, Tablo recieves the most number of channels and never has noise or dropouts.
I am using the Tablo Lite (Dual Tuner Box) along with a local WD Elements USB powered Drive. I couldn’t be happier.
