If you’re a cord cutter, you’ve likely heard of Tablo. I featured it in my article on essential cord-cutting tools. It’s a powerful device that brings DVR functionality to over-the-air broadcasts.
One of the features people miss most when cancelling cable or satellite subscriptions is the graphical menu and ability to record, pause, and rewind programs for later usage. Tablo resolves these issues with a sleek graphical interface and powerful functionality.
Today, Nuvyyo announced they’ve tweaked the functionality to provide even more power. Now it feels even more like a premium cable/satellite DVR. You can adjust recording times, choose which episodes to retain, and choose specific channels to record if a program is airing on multiple channels (i.e. HD and standard).
Your recordings can then be accessed from the Tablo app on your favorite smart TV device, such as the Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, NVIDIA SHIELD TV, PC/MAC, and mobile devices.
The firmware update is available on Tablo 2-Tuner, Tablo 4-Tuner, and Tablo DUAL 64GB OTA DVRs.
Here’s the full press release to learn more.
Flexible Scheduling and Recording Management Tools Now Available
OTTAWA, ON — January 25, 2018 — Nuvyyo, the maker of Tablo Over-the-Air (OTA) DVRs (www.tablotv.com) for cord cutters, today announced new ‘advanced recording’ features are available for all Tablo hardware DVRs. Cord cutters using Tablo to watch and record antenna TV will now have more precise scheduling tools and recording management options, including:
- Adjust Start/Stop Time – Start recordings up to 10 mins early and end as much as 3 hours after the scheduled program time
- Keep X Recordings – Retain all episodes or only a select number of airings
- Recording Channel Selector – Choose which channel to record from if multiple channels are airing a favorite program
Tablo’s new advanced recording features can be applied to single airings, or to an entire series and, as part of Tablo’s continually expanding advanced feature set, are available to all customers with an active Tablo subscription.
“Industry experts have already singled Tablo out as the best OTA DVR for most cord cutters, yet we remain focused on making our Tablo app experience even better through performance and feature-set improvements,” said Grant Hall, CEO at Nuvyyo, the makers of Tablo. “With these powerful advanced recording features, we believe Tablo now offers best mix of feature set, ease-of-use, and cross-device support of any antenna DVR solution.”
Once updated to the latest firmware (2.2.18), owners of Tablo 2-Tuner, Tablo 4-Tuner, and Tablo DUAL 64GB OTA DVRs can access advanced recording settings via the Tablo Channel on Roku and Tablo apps for Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, NVIDIA SHIELD TV, PC/MAC, and mobile devices. Over the coming months, these features will be made available on additional Tablo-supported devices and Tablo platforms including the Tablo DVR ENGINE for NVIDIA SHIELD TV.
