The 4th generation Tablo includes an optional in-line amplifier to help lock in over-the-air channels from your TV antenna.
While the amplifier is enabled by default, it can and should be disabled within the SETTINGS screen of your Tablo app if:
- You are already using an amplified TV antenna
- You live VERY close to your local broadcast TV towers
In those cases, the in-line amplifier can overdrive the tuners in the Tablo leading to over-the-air TV antenna signal quality issues including video breakup or total signal loss.
Once you have disabled the setting, it is advisable to run and save a fresh channel scan on your Tablo so your device can potentially discover channels that were too overdriven to be tuned during a previous scan.
