I've really had it with this piece of junk. It's a great concept executed as badly as it could possibly have been. SO unreliable. CONSTANTLY crashing. Timing out. Needing to be reset, AGAIN. I've had Tablo for a couple years now and use it almost soley for watching NFL. So many times I've spent 20 minutes just trying to refresh the guide to record a game later today. Eventually I'll usually set the time manually. Only to later find that it, for whatever reason, didn't record. Worse than useless.

It can be improved. Would be tremendously beneficial to have a mute button for the mobile app. that's easily accessible. Right now the only way to mute sound is to fumble around with the volume control which is not always conveniently located. Also, fix the surround sound issue so that its not all or nothing. None of my recent vintage devices can process the surround sound. Roku seems to be ok. Other similar products don't have this issue and neither should this one.

Great app for people who like troubleshooting! It may be unfair to blame the app, but the setup of the Tablo DVR, which is done via the app, is anything but smooth. In order to set the system up for the first time, it took research on the web, removing the DVR's hard drive, plus uninstalling and reinstalling the app. All I can suggest is have patience; it ultimately did work.
