Android TV version of the app lacks Live Channels integration and AC3 passthrough for a better sound experience. Also noticed that the sound levels are much lower than other apps on my Android TV. Fast forwarding through a recording with thumbnails was nicely done. Overall still a decent app; it has come a long way since the version that came with the indiegogo hardware release.
This app is terrible. Constantly disconnects. " No tablo found on network" after it has already been connected days before. Slow. Slow, slow. Shows and recordings buffer. Good idea but needs work.
I use the Tablo on all devices in my house. Fire TV, apple and Android. This Android app just keeps crashing. I updated and did a complete reboot and after about 5 mins in the stream just stops and I have to close it open it again to get another 5 mins. It works fine on my other devices.
These folks care about their customers and are constantly working with them to improve the experience. I watch MY local channels from MY antenna, anywhere I have internet. Pause and rewind live tv, set and watch recordings, etc. And all on every device I use - with multiple instances at once! Nothing else offers all this! If you're having trouble, submit a support ticket and they will work with you to figure it out. Really Nick? It hasn't worked since the Superbowl and you haven't figured it out yet? LOL!
Really? One of the biggest selling points, live TV, isn't supported by the Android app? So my $800 high performance smartphone is relegated to being an expensive remote control for the Tablo? I thought I must be missing something...but no. Very disappointing. I didn't buy it for DVR capability...could care less about it...so that leaves me with pretty much no functionality unless I care to sit down at my PC or the room with the Fire TV stick. Can't even use the Android App to cast to my ChromeCast.
The syncing seems to take a while on the Nexus player if it syncs at all. Syncing is fine on my phone. Also the option to set up a series recording but have it start a couple minutes early as well as run late would be amazing. If the syncing gets better I'll increase rating.
• Fix to allow manual recordings set less than 1 hour in the future
• Fix to restore 'Play Now' button when an airing is selected
• Fix for 'No Tablo found' device discovery issue seen by some users
