The Tablo team has been in the dev lab at Nuvyyo HQ working on a secret project that we hope Tablo customers will be very excited about... Advanced recording features!
All Tablo Over-the-Air DVRs can now enjoy more flexible scheduling and recording management capabilities on your favorite Tablo apps.
Advanced Recording Features include highly requested recording management tools including:
Adjust Start/Stop Times for Recordings
You can now set recordings on episodes or full series to start up to 10 mins early and end as much as 3 hours after the scheduled program end-time.
This is especially useful for shows scheduled after events that typically run long like sports, or when certain broadcasts regularly begin a minute or two early.
Keep X Recordings
Ideal for programs that air frequently like talk shows, game shows, and the news, you can now preset your Tablo OTA DVR to retain all recorded episodes, or only the most recent five, three, or single airings (plus any protected recordings).
*** Update - Keep 10 & 20 options have been added! ***
Recording Channel Selector
Handy for those who live in between two broadcast areas, or on the Canada-US border, you can now choose which channel Tablo will record from if multiple channels are airing your favorite program.
This flexibility helps resolve recording conflicts, and allows you to override Tablo’s smart scheduling (which automatically chooses the channel with the best signal quality) so you can specify the source broadcaster for each of your shows.
Adjust start/stop times for recordings and the recording channel selector features are available for both individual airings and series recordings (ALL or ALL NEW).
As you can imagine, keep X recordings is available only on series recordings.
How To Access New Features
Access to all new features requires an active Tablo TV Guide Data Service subscription (or in-progress free trial), Tablo firmware (2.2.18+), and the latest Tablo apps.
Supported Tablo Apps
Advanced recording options are available within most Tablo apps including those for:
