1 out of 5 eggsDidn't even plug it in and it has to be returned..

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: None yet. I haven't even powered it on.

Cons: Heard a metallic sound inside case when I lifted the Tabloo out of its box. Something is loose inside.

Sending back....

4 out of 5 eggsGreat DVR

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: The setup took a while since, but this was due to not having a great HDTV antenna. I actually purchased a mohu leaf 50 antenna which gave. I used to have aereo but this is much better. I'm able to record 4 shows at once and be able to see it any where, which is something i really enjoy.

Cons: The company is working on the cons. 1. No iphone app to watch or set you tablo to record to watch later. 2. If you have selected to record multiple episodes of a tv show and watch an episode there is no way to tell which episode you watch. Aereo was able to do this by adding a blue dot next to the episodes that you have not watch. 3. Extend recording when a sporting event or show goes over for some reason. 4. Click on a record button on live tv to record immediately. 5. Select multiple episode of tv show to delete or delete all episode at once.

Other Thoughts: While this dvr is missing some features that we have become used to in other dvrs it is still a great dvr. I like it better than aereo, i don't have to worry about the government taking it away. I hope to see some of the missing features in the near future. If you used to pay for aereo ($13), this device (4-turner), plus 1 2TB hard drive and monu leaf antenna should pay for itself within 39 months. If you had basic cable it will pay for itself within a year.

3 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Records what I want to. Once you get the hang of the interface, it works pretty well. I can view it on my ipads so far.

Cons: 1. The initial setup is not as easy or user friendly.
2. So far, I have not gotten it to work with the roku.
3. The web interface on my computer takes a lot of cache memory on safari. I wish it would work with firefox but it does not.
4. So far, recording two shows at the same time cause the signal from my antenna to degrace.

Other Thoughts: I am still working with the device to see if I can improve it. Since Aereo was disconnected and I do not want to go back to cable, I will see if I can work around it. If you have a great antenna signal, it might not be an issue. Right now in NYC, I can't get 11 and 13.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Perfect Aereo Replacement

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Box is silent, which was a concern for Simple TV.
Fastest channel scanning ive ever seen
Clean interface on Roku, Plex, or Web
Passed the wife test
I control it and am not at the mercy of a server getting hammered on Superbowl Sunday.

Cons: Requires your own antenna
May require tuning of your network for optimal performance, or streaming from remote (Hotels, etc)
Still receiving many updates, which I consider a Pro. However someone looking for a "seasoned" device may be disappointed as even the more mature Simple TV 2 has terrible reviews regarding customer service and inability to return.

Roku does not yet work from remote networks.

Other Thoughts: I found it easiest to first setup my antenna (Clearstream C2) and connect it directly to the TV so I would know channels and quality to expect through the Tablo.

Use the shortest coaxial cable possible to connect antenna to tablo. Ive heard folks with the four tuner model have difficulty, as it splits the signal regardless of what is being watched - - resulting in degradation of quality

The folks that make the Tablo are incredibly active on their blog, taking suggestions from users and implementing them. You can tell they really love OTA TV. I am very exited with each update and know that they are passionate about their product.

Some might see it as "beta" product, but there just hasnt been any demand for this kind of stuff up until Aereo showed us what we could get for free over the air, and even more so when the Supreme Court ignorantly took it away from us. Although I am much happier with this system in the long run as I feel I control it, a bunch of people in black dresses.

I would buy again most definitely.

5 out of 5 eggsComing along well

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Good video.
Great tech support.
Nice interface.
A wireless N from tablo and wireless to roku is stable and functional.
Setup was a cakewalk once it worked.
Regular improvements.

Cons: The wireless setup was tough because the shipped box and online site software was out of sync.
A poor wireless connection will stutter a lot.
Roku app is functional but doesn't have the array of bells and whistles it might like.

Other Thoughts: This was a successful aereo replacement. And it passed the wife test.
Bought a twelve dollar n router to support it vs Att router.

4 out of 5 eggsWindows Media Center Replacment

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: We are using chrome on our windows tablets and android smartphones for mobile watching/setting up recordings then roku 3 for TV viewing. Had the device for a little over a week now an absolutely love it. It will be replacing my windows media center PC. The user interface is simple and nicely lay'd out. The tuner is phenomenal just got a pair of rabbit ears feed to it and it picks up more channels than my tv. Would highly recommend to any cord cutters, replacing media pc, or looking to drop hulu.

Cons: A feature to start watching shows that are recording and a game console channel. Only cons which are not deal breakers cause the company is working to address them are. Could not setup on wifi right out of the box cause we do not have an ipad or android tablet. Roku channel needs a little updating, faster commercial skip button.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good but hopefully will be great

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Nice web interface, if slow at times. Competently filling a giant hole in the market at a reasonable cost. I know for a fact many of the desired improvements are forthcoming. It is effective enough that you love the device despite its current flaws.

Cons: -Roku app doesn't work with older Rokus as of 7/2014
-Not yet a native cell phone app that works with chromecast (web app does work with cell phones with chromecast, it is just slow and non-native)
-Recording and delete options are limited at this point (e.g. should be able to record UNIQUE rerun shows to avoid duplicates, should have auto-delete, cant prioritize shows well right now).
-LIve TV often not available as the tuners are occupied by recording, which you cannot easily stop
-Setting up remote streaming is doable but a bit technical for many users

5 out of 5 eggsIt is perfect

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsVery bad product

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Makes a lot of impressive promises, but...

Cons: The Tablo doesn't deliver on any of its promises. The system seems to crash. It also will randomly lose it's wired ethernet conenction (it will be linked, but nothing listening). Shows, when they do record, the systems is never stable long enough to finish recording a whole show, not even a 30 minute show (with some very rare exceptions).

Other Thoughts: It's possible that I received a very broken unit from Newegg. I am trying to work with Tablo support on a return/exchange. But part of me thinks that it's very possible that there are just real problems with the device on the whole.

3 out of 5 eggsProbably best OTA TV DVR today, but needs some work

This review is from: Tablo Digital Video Recorder SPVR2-01-NA Wireless Interface

Pros: Allows watching and recording of up to two simulatneous broadcast OTA shows. Works with Roku. Works via web, iPad and Android Tablets (7" screen or higher required). Has channel guide featuring browsing by categories like Movies, Sports, TV Shows. Has both wired and WiFi for networking. Can watch TV and recordings from multiple devices at the same time.

Cons: Had to reboot the Tablo (unplug, plug back in) to get the Roku's to see it after the Tablo channel was installed. Documentation says you can "browse" to the Tablo channel, but there is no such option. Maybe that works if you have more than one Tablo? Occasionally, seems that the Roku's can't see the Tablo anymore and I have to restart the Tablo (unplug and plug back in). You have to purchase your own anteena and USB hard drive. Roku app needs some work. No way to record what you are watching live (no record button). Android support doesn't include Android phones. No "TV guide" on the Roku side.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like the device. Clearly there is still work that needs to be done to make this device "complete". I fear that in some ways they tried to dumb down very important things (like connectivity) at the expense of the device not working sometimes without a reboot (e.g. for the Roku). Maybe they should have an "advanced" settings option to allow people to "make it work" instead of depending on unreliable "voodoo" magic. It beats Aereo in some ways and in some ways it is weaker. But still the best out there today. Former Aereo users need to put this on their short list.
