Received the Tablo Dual lite today (the $99 special). All set up without issue. Actually picked up a few more channels than the TV tuner. A couple problems, mainly buffering. Buffers for 2 or 3 seconds about every minute of two.
I have the Tablo hard wired to Linksys router (that's acting as an access point), that is hard wired to my main router. I get 200mbps on my phone near the main router, but only 15-20 near the access point. I use a Roku2 at the TV near the access point and Tablo.
Is the buffering from the older Roku, or the slower access point? Anyone know why the access point is so slow?
Edit: Decided to try wireless rather than wired to AP. Seems to have removed buffers issues. Weird. Roku2 is definitely slower than my Ultra in the main room. Moving around the guide is about 3x quicker with the ultra! Recorded a show to an old HD with no issues. Pretty nice!
If I don't subscribe in 30 days to the guide, is the guide the same, just 2 days rather than 14? Can still record to local HD, right? Since this is mainly for 2 guest TVs, not worth spending money on the guide.
