How does the Tablo DVR work?

The Tablo DVR box collects free Over-The-Air (OTA) HDTV content through an external antenna connected to the box.

The Tablo DVR is then connected to your home’s Internet router, either through Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. The Tablo app (on your respective device) will walk you through the remaining installation and setup process and will become the primary interface with your Tablo system.

Once Tablo has helped you scan for and select the HDTV channels you want to view, and download program guide data, you’re ready to browse, record and stream live HDTV programming on your tablet, phone, PC/Mac or TV attached devices.

    HOW do I connect another TV? I bought a 4-tuner Tablo so I could do this, but can't find any instructions on HOW to do this. Grrrrr. It feels like I was mislead about the Tablo capabilities.
