Latest Tablo Dual has a dedicated remote control
Tablo released a new DVR for over-the-air channels that connects directly to a TV and comes with a dedicated remote control.
The Tablo Dual HDMI went on sale today at the company’s website for $149.99.
This OTA DVR marks a first for Tablo, which is made by Ottawa-based Nuvyyo.
Past Tablo models such as the Tablo Dual Lite only connected to a WiFi router. That’s pretty common with a number of OTA DVRs.
Tablo’s latest DVR plugs directly into a television’s HDMI port, but can still stream live TV and recordings to additional TVs through the Tablo app.
The Tablo Dual HDMI is a two-tuner model. So people can record or watch live TV on two channels at once.
The Tablo app is available on most major streaming devices including Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV.
Picture quality enthusiasts take note: This Dual HDMI DVR records and displays in raw MPEG2 video format at the same resolution as the broadcast, according to Nuvyyo. That includes 1080i at 60 frames per second when it’s available.
