Poor PerformancePosted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
Tablo says CUT THE CORD but if you have Tablo you can't cut the real cord because it will not work without at least having cable internet where thousands of Tv programs are available free. It will not connect directly to your TV. As a radio engineer, I am unimpressed. It appears to work fine if you continue to pay Tablo for their guide. However when you don't use the guide to record, it will often skip recording programs that are listed as scheduled. When you power it down, you can not get it back until you go on line. Now it is telling me there is no storage connected even though I have almost nothing stored and it will not let me watch anything it has already stored. This is a complicated device and as the on line comments clearly show it get very complicated if you do not use and pay for their guide every month. I have included a picture of the scheduler clearly showing it is recording the event yet it will not record this event. I have also showed what your screen will look like sometimes if you try to watch something after the device has been powered down. There must be better alternatives.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Neat device for Cord Cutters||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
Having read a review advocating for this device as easy to use for those seeking to use an HD antennae instead of paid cable/TV, it seemed like a no brainer. Price is not bad considering it was a one time investment and compared to what monthly prices are for Major Providers such as Slime Warner, or similar giants, it's understandable. Recommend that you understand what your personal needs are when it comes to cutting the cord before you purchase equipment as I was unaware that a Chromecast, which I currently utilize, is not 100% suitable for streaming the recorded content from the Tablo to my TV. Please review the content posted on Tablo's site to see what is recommended as a best case scenario for using this product in your home environment (Smart TV, Fire Stick, etc.) Pros: Geek factor Easy to set up Small Form Factor Cost Expandable Storage option Cons: No HDMI port for output directly to TV No remoteI would recommend this to a friend

Just so you know...||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
(1) Wi-fi setup is tricky but is great once you get it working. (2) If the Tablo server in Canada goes down, you can't watch anything (even recordings) unless you have Roku. This second problem is the target of many complaints on Tablo's community forum and the company seems deaf to all requests to fix it. Just be aware of all this before you buy. I have no regrets because, at the time I purchased, TabloTV was the best option out there.I would recommend this to a friend

Great Cord Cutting Device||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
I bought the Tablo after I canceled my AT&T UVerse service. I set up my Tablo in about 30 minutes. It was easy to set up but getting the settings right to record took some trial and error. I missed recording some shows the first few days but once I fiddled around with it, i got it working just right. This is a great Over-The-Air (OTA) DVR for cord cutters. I use a streaming service that doesn't include my local networks. Now I can record all my favorite OTA shows for free!! I only need one antenna and all the TVs in my home have access. Great Product once you set it up!!I would recommend this to a friend

Highly Recommended for Cord Cutters!||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
I canceled cable TV some time ago, mainly because I hated the extra charges for HD, extra TVs, cable boxes, etc. I have tried Sling, Hulu, DirecTV Now, Prime, etc. They are good, but none offers a good option to watch local channels. I got an HD antenna with an amplifier and Tablo. It works great. Set up was really simple: plug the antena into Tablo and Tablo to your Internet router. A simple app scans channels and lets you select which ones you want. Then add the Tablo app to Roku and you are done. I have been watching the World Cup, local channels, and late night: Steven Colbert and Seth Meyers. The quality is as good or better than UVerse and any Internet-based TV service. the DVR works great. I have zero monthly fees. Nada. In fact, I save money because I can watch TV in full HD without using any of my Internet bandwidth, so you can go for a lower-cost package. I still have Sling TV and Netflix, but neither of those is to watch TV. Tablo is not perfect. This is what I did not like: - During one game I had a black screen for a second. Don't know why and has not happened again. - In the current software you cannot set a recording from Roku, I have to do it from my PC or a browser. - It takes about 10 seconds to start watching any channel. So it is not a good option for channel surfing. - HD antennas have a limited number of channels available. Search online for what is your coverage. I live close to the Mansfield dam, in a lower part of the city. We struggle with cell phone coverage. I have no problem with any of the HD aerial channels. I do recommend getting an antenna with an amplifier.I would recommend this to a friend

Nice DVR system||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
The great thing about this system is it only takes 1 antenna and not a ton of coax cable around the house. With this DVR you run your antenna to your Tablo system. Plug your Tablo system into your WiFi and you can watch your recorded shows from any tablet, smart phone, or smart tv in your home (or any streaming device like a Roku). It’s easy to install but to properly set it up can be difficult. It took awhile to get the settings right but once I got it right we have crystal clear recordings of our TV showsI would recommend this to a friend

Great overall experience||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
I have been very happy with my Tablo. Luckily I have good TV reception in my area and this makes a huge difference. Have been using Tablo for a month and have experienced no problems. I have a relatively slow internet connection (18mb) and have experienced next to no buffering issues. This was my biggest concern before making the purchase so I'm very happy about that. The interface of the Tablo is impressive and easy to use. You can pull up live TV or your recorded programs in any room you have a compatible device set up. Would recommend to anyone tired of paying Tivo fees or cable bills.I would recommend this to a friend

Tablo is the solution||Posted .This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.
This tablo is a great DVR solution if you are using OTA antenna. One thing that was disappointing was when I connected my antenna to tablo i received less channels than when I had it connected to my Xbox one via hauppague tuner. You definitely lose some signal strength by connecting to Tablo as opposed to straight to a TV or an Xbox one tuner. I called tablo about this and they said that it was normal (the reason was technical for me to explain but they did give me a reason). The folks at Tablo were easy to get on the phone, seemed knowledgable and were ready to assist with any problems, that is a big plus. It’s so easy to set up that you probably won’t need any help though. It’s great that you only need one antenna rather than having to buy an antenna for every TV or splitting your feed. I can watch and record live TV from my antenna on any TV (as long as you have installed the Tablo App on your roku, firestick, Xbox, etc). I can even watch and record from my mobile device when I am not home. One other thing that doesn’t bother me too much but may bother some people is that it can take about 10-20 seconds to change the channel. It’s not a big deal because I’m not going to be channel surfing the OTA feed, I’m either watching something or recording something. Depends on your location how many OTA channels you can get. Tablo gives you free guide data for the next 24 hours, that’s ok. If you want the 2 weeks of guide data, cover art, ability to set series recordings, and ability to watch when outside of your home network, then you do need to pony up 5 bucks a month, $100 a year, or $150 for your life. That seems reasonable to me. This device, to my knowledge, cannot be used with cable or streaming services. It’s for OTA only. It runs a little hot and I understand that that is normal. If you plan on ditching cable and you want to DVR network television, this is a product that you need. I paid $200 for the tablo duel. It’s a little steep upfront but worth every penny, in my opinionI would recommend this to a friend
