5 out of 5 eggsThis thing rocks!

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: I have tried numerous other boxes and I have to say this thing is slick. I needed a way to use OTA antenna through a roku and this works great. I love the interface and especially streaming live tv on my ipad, phone etc.the remote connect is fantastic. Imagine watching your shows from anywhere in the world. It is seamless when connecting once you have connected once in your local wifi. Setup was a breeze and the graphical user interface is great. The box was pricey but It definitely excels,at what it does and beats the competition. I considered TiVo but paying $15/mos just for guide data and dvr didn't make sense for a cord-cutter. You do have to pay to get the full 2 week guide data but you can still use the box if you don't subscribe monthly unlike TiVo. The mos fee for tablo is $4.99.

Cons: Price.
The hard drive you choose can make a big difference. It is finicky with the hard drive it likes. I had a couple that the tablo recognized but after a while I had streaming problems or recording issues. Tip- go in the tablo forum and read the tested hdd's.
Occasional drops but could be network issues.

Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend this if you use a ota antenna and would also like to stream to a mobile device both internally and externally. I believe tablo is on the right track and should only keep getting better.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good option for cutting the cable

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: Lower monthly/lifetime cost than Tivo
Subscription is per account and not per device like Tivo
No more cable bills
Excellent customer service
iPad app works amazingly

Cons: New device so the UI could use some work for usability and consistancy

Other Thoughts: I've been using this for about a month now and am generally happy with this device. It allows you to schedule recordings for OTA programs. We don't watch too much on cable so this will be a perfect replacement when it matures and gets the kinks worked out.

I've used it with the built-in browser with my LG Smart TV, laptop, Chromecast, Android tablet, and iPad. The iPad and laptop performance was incredible. Very fast loading for recordings, and live TV worked great. My TV's built in browser did not do very well, but I've come to find out it's because of the browser and not the Tablo. I'm planning on buying a Roku stick to use instead. I also wasn't impressed with the Chromecast performance. It seemed slow, although it didn't consistently crash, like the LG browser.

The company is very active on their support forums so it seems they are truly trying to improve their product. I'm hoping that it won't take long to hire the people needed to bring the features their customers would like and make the usability more seemless between the different interfaces.

5 out of 5 eggsTerrific

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: It just works

Never run out of space with 1T drive

Stable does not crash

Guide shows premiering shows two weeks in advance

Support team continually working on enhancements and bug fixes.

Cons: Need a good antenna

Does not remember where you left off viewing recordings

Web app does not handle conflicts

Live portion of guide is only 24 hours (You get two weeks of upcoming shows in guide but only 1 day shows in live portion of guide)

Other Thoughts: What you get is only as good as your entire system including the Tablo. Get a good antenna and mount outside or in attic. Make sure your internet is high enough speed. I had initial problems with the 2 and the 4 tuner model until mounted in attic.

4 out of 5 eggsTable 4 Tuner

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: Relatively easy to set up. Available throughout the house via networked devices.
Worked well with either a small amplified omnidirectional antenna or a large passive antenna in my attic.
I like how the shows are grouped by season and include graphics.

Cons: Roku interface still a little rough. Setup was a little awkward having to use a device in addition to Roku.
Watching live tv not the greatest due to lag.
Would like to see more info on episodes on Roku interface (not sure if available on tablets), like episode numbers and original air dates.

Other Thoughts: I have been using it for a couple of weeks and have been impressed so far. It serves my purpose- have an easy-to-use DVR for OTA shows so that I can cut the cord with my satellite provider.
Overall, a very good purchase. Should break even within a year on equipment investment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: Able to record 4 shows at once. Able to stream to multiple Rokus at once, and to remote Android, or PC with a Chrome browser. Responsive tech support.. Low power requirements.

Cons: none works as advertised

Other Thoughts: I was a 10 year mythtv user, and cut the cable TV cord many years ago. I upgraded to a multiple TabloTV setup mainly to save on the power bill. One year of not paying a cable TV Bill will pay easily for the TabloTV. The lower power bill is a plus. TabloTV is quiet and responsive, record everything. You will end up deleting shows you simply do not have time to watch.

3 out of 5 eggs4 tuner Tablo

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: Allow access to 4 tuners over network.
Sensitive tuner able to receive all my local channels
Works with broad range of tablets and phones
Easy setup
Responsive technical support with active development

Cons: Only current method for connecting to regular TV is Roku
Long delay before picture displays on TV
4 tuner currently only supports 720p output as 1080p deinterlacing not functional.
No EPG for Roku like what is standard on web app.

Other Thoughts: This has potential to be an incredible product but right now its more of a beta product with lots of missing features, like adding padding, 30 second skip, etc. If Nuvyo live up to their promises, this could be a killer device.

2 out of 5 eggsBugs Galore! Get the swatter!

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: It would allow you to cut the cord and DVR broadcast TV, if it worked well. Picture quality was actually decent.

Cons: BUGS! Pricey for a beta product (beta is being kind, btw). Took a long time to setup because it's so buggy. Android app sucks (tablet only, btw). Web interface is ok on PC. Can't use it on Android device because it needs Flash. Roku app is ok if Roku is wired, horrible if wireless. Runs hot. You can't depend on it to record, which is the whole purpose of this thing.

Other Thoughts: You might see some *ah-hem* glowing reviews. Don't believe them, Tablo is pimping a contest to encourage people to review this.

I honestly hope they get it together and this thing improves as I think it has a lot of potential.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: Tablo 4 Tuner DVR for HDTV Antennas SPVR4-01-NA

Pros: Nice interface through the iOS and Android applications. Streaming quality was excellent.

Cons: The device spreads your antenna signal over the four tuners (thus further weakening your signal). Be forewarned that if your signal for a particular channel isn't great, you will have pixelation issues with the Tablo. The device also runs hot. So hot that it is not comfortable to touch and quite frankly a bit concerning. The latest firmware breaks Live TV viewing, requiring daily multiple resets of the unit. The Roku channel could be better (ability to 30 second skip would have been nice). There is no way to schedule a manual recording either (daily, weekly, or otherwise).

Other Thoughts: It seems that the Tablo may have been released a bit too early. It's almost like it is an early access product and all of the early adopters are troubleshooting the device for Nuvyyo. Paying a premium price to be a beta tester didn't sit right with me. So I returned my 4 tuner pre-order for a refund. Don't get me wrong, I think they are going to have a great product once all bugs and kinks get ironed out. This might be THE product to get after a year or so of improvements are made.
