4th Generation Tablo DVRs do not support remote access connections. As such, this article does not apply.

When you are not on your home network, Tablo Connect allows for a user-configurable setting labeled Remote Streaming Quality. This setting enables you to choose the speed at which your Tablo delivers video over your home network.

If you are encountering buffering using higher-quality remote streaming settings, you can reduce it at any time. 

 

 

However, at any setting but FULL QUALITY, your Tablo will use a tuner to transcode the video to the streaming quality you have requested. 

As the video must be transcoded at any other setting, you will not be able to begin a partially watched recording at a previously saved playback position or save a new playback position. You will also be limited to a single remote stream.
