NOTE: The following applies to 4th Generation Tablo devices (white). If you have a legacy Tablo device (black), please see the link here.

 

Tablo 4th Generation relies on the TV Guide Data it downloads each night to schedule recordings.

All 4th Generation Tablo devices come with a rolling 14 days of guide data included with the purchase of the unit at no additional cost.

 

Two types of recordings can be set on 4th Generation Tablos, one-time, and series. All types of recordings also have additional advanced recording options to fine-tune your scheduling. 

 

One-time Recordings

1. From the Tablo app, navigate to any one of the following pages: Live, Shows, Movies or Sports.

2. Select the show you are interested in recording.

Advanced Recording Options

Recording options allow you to customize how a series is recorded. It provides the following options:

  • Record All or New Episodes
  • Start and End the recording early or late
  • Keep a specified number of episodes before deleting the oldest first
  • In cases where an airing is present on multiple channels, specify which channel you wish to record from
