Quad OTA Re-ferb Was Bad Out Of The Box

Very disappointed. The one I was sent would do nothing. Blue light was on constantly and the setup instructions were a fail. I sent it back. I think I know why they do not support the Quad OTR HDMI units. My understanding is Scripps bought Tablo. Can't have the general public watching and recording TV with out getting some payment. American TV is difficult and the FCC has done nothing to protect us. These comments likely will be never seen.

Hi We're sorry to hear you're having trouble setting up your Tablo. Our customer support team would be happy to investigate the issues you're having. Please reach out to them via chat or open a ticket here:


It's an average product that was able to pick up 42 channels however this product needs a storage device to record your shows-at least 1 TB.


I was really hoping there would be some significant improvements from the original model...


Broke from cold.


I like it but the price is not for me and I did not know that I got to pay for the prescription and pay for a memory card that was too much for me about I would love to buy it again
