They are Dolby certified already (way back in the beginning).

Hello everyone,

I'm researching cord cutting and will probably end up with a two tuner Tablo. What media are you watching that you'd like to have 5.1 on?

The tablo will be used for Football and sitcoms mostly for me so in those instances 5.1 is a nice to have but not really required. I don't know if NFL broadcasts have any surround anyway, they probably do but I've never noticed it.

I'm hoping to have redundant coax OTA connected to the AVR's anyway.

The NFL does do surround sound, but since I just have a soundbar hooked up to my main TV, the lack of 5.1 sound on my Tablo doesn't bother me.

I have had my 2-tuner Tablo for over a year now, and I think I have conflicts with just 2 tuners less than 5 times. One advantage a 4 tuner Tablo does have is that it can create thumbnail previews faster. Within a few minutes of a show ending its recording, the Tablo will use an available tuner to create those thumbnails. If you have a lot of back-to-back shows being recorded, it will take a while to get those thumbnails on a 2-tuner.

On my main tv, I do have a separate antenna hooked up directly for NFL games mainly. I like to post messages on my Titans board after good plays, and there is about a 30 second delay between seeing a play live on the direct antenna vs seeing it after being processed by the Tablo and Roku.

I hope you like it! If you haven't been to the main Tablo board, I encourage you to visit: https://community.tablotv.com/

Thanks, that is good information to know. I'll be installing the Tablo tonight although shortly it will be going through an 8 port channel master amp as I intend to have all of my existing direct TV lines converted to antenna lines as a back up and 3rd TV tuner.

Install went pretty smoothly, I probably will only use it on places I don’t have a direct antenna connection or if its recorded. I have antenna directly connected to two TV’s and will be connecting it to my theater once my tuner comes in. One thing I noticed is my TV’s can pick up Baltimore and DC stations but the Tablo shows 3 out of 5 circles for DC stations. It will allow me to add them to my Tablo list but if I attempt to tune them it won’t come in. If I flip to the antenna source it comes in fine.

Something to do with the Tablo OTA tuner perhaps. They are all coming off the same distribution amp.
