4th Generation 4-Tuner Tablo Total System Now Available

The Tablo Dual HDMI plugs directly into the TV like a traditional DVR while allowing users the option to stream content on some Internet-connected devices.

Canadian electronics company Nuvyyo has launched a new version of their popular Tablo DVRs that functions more like a traditional video recorder.

The new device, called the Tablo DUAL HDMI, plugs directly into the back of a TV set and offers the full Tablo experience without the need for a separate Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Android TV device.

“We’ve done the most 2020 thing we could think of — something so unexpected, we even surprised ourselves!” the company said in a blog post published on Tuesday. ”

The move was unexpected because Nuvyyo’s traditional line of Tablo devices have paired the experience of free, over-the-air broadcast television — the kind you’d get with an antenna — with the flexibility of viewing on a smartphone, tablet, computer or streaming TV device.

The Tablo Dual HDMI removes the extra step of needing anything more than a traditional television set to use Tablo’s DVR service. Just plug the box into the back of the TV set, hook up an antenna, set up the Tablo with the included universal remote control and you’re good to go.

“Many folks who watch TV with an antenna still prefer a more traditional DVR set up that comes with its own remote and connects directly to a single TV via HDMI,” Nuvyyo said. “Until today, these cord cutters had few options from which to choose. Thanks to the Tablo DUAL HDMI, they can finally enjoy a quality, affordable and yet powerful DVR that meets their needs.”

The new Tablo Dual HDMI does come with a few limitations: Unlike the company’s other Internet-connected DVRs, the Tablo Dual HDMI doesn’t work with existing Tablo apps for smartphones, tablets or Apple TV. But it will allow users to stream live and recorded TV on the primary TV set and up to two secondary TV sets that use Roku, Android TV or Amazon Fire TV hardware, though the company says streaming to other sets will require a very strong Wi-Fi signal or hard-wiring the Tablo to a router via Ethernet.

But the Tablo Dual HDMI does have some advantages over its Internet-dedicated brethren: The Tablo Dual HDMI records and streams in raw MPEG-2, which is the same codec used by over-the-air broadcasters. That means the picture quality and frame rate of the video is higher compared to other Tablo devices that encode the signal in a more-compressed MPEG-4 format, though most people probably won’t be able to tell the difference.
