Very glitchy software

Initial setup with WiFi STILL not working, weeks after receiving.

Working great

I am using my Tablo in southern Florida with my Roku capable tvs. So far it is exactly what I hoped for. I can record programs and play them back on any of my 4 TVs. The guide is good, I wish I could continue to watch while viewing the guide but it’s a small thing in the big scheme of things.

Better than expected.

As I was researching ways to cut the cord, I came across a Tablo that seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. Cutting the cord meant that I would lose local channels and lose DVR. Tablo even with a cheap indoor antenna picks up most of my areas local channels that I can watch in better video quality than cable I think. It's a little clumsy compared to the streamlined cable guide's available, but workable. Station icons are too tiny for my eyes. I subscribed to a TV streaming service before I installed my Tablo. Comparing the two, I can live with just the Tablo to save a lot of money. Love it. Wish I got the 4-channel one as I have a household of adults and children.

Disappointed as it is not compatible with our new LG TV and it doesn’t sound like that will change

Not compatible with new LG tv
