Happy Friday Cord Cutters!
This week we have a Q&A on resolving recording conflicts on your Tablo, deals, short cuts, must-see TV, and more!
As always, if you know of someone who might need some insight or help with cutting the cord on cable or satellite, please forward our newsletter, or use the handy share buttons at the top of this email.
OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > How Do I Fix the Red Triangle So My Show Records?
This week's question comes from Susan who says, "One of my shows has a red triangle with an exclamation point it in which Tablo isn't recording. All of the future recordings also have red triangles. How do I fix it so it records in the future?"
In your Tablo app or interface, there are three indicators of a recording conflict: a red triangle in the corner of a series set to record, a red underline in the live TV grid, and a red exclamation point in a circle.
Conflicts arise when you try to schedule more programs to record in a single timeslot than your Tablo has available tuners. A two-tuner Tablo can record up to two shows at once, and a four-tuner Tablo up to four. Programs marked as conflicts won't record, as the shows you've set first will take priority.
All Tablo apps (with the exception of Roku) will allow you to select RESOLVE CONFLICT when you select an airing marked as a conflict. This will reveal a list of airings scheduled in that time slot and allow you to un-schedule one or more programs to resolve the conflict.
