- Download the AppImage for this release - TabloTools-0.2.4.AppImage
TabloTools-0.2.4.AppImageexecutable and run it.
Follow these quick instructions if you're unsure how to do that.
- tablo-tools_0.2.4_amd64.deb (ubuntu, debian, etc).
- tablo-tools-0.2.4.x86_64.rpm (centos, redhat, etc).
- Download the installer for this release - TabloTools-Setup-0.2.4.exe
Other packages: You will have to check back for new versions on your own.
NOTICE: The Windows packages are not signed and will require clicking through security warnings to install, but it will work fine after that. Why not?
The first time you start Tablo Tools, it will automatically detect the first Tablo it finds on your network and builds a copy of the recording data. It should go something like this:
Now let's head over to
Browse and Search. We'll select
all 60 Minutes episodes and delete them.
Next, let's reset our Search and then search for the term
this (totally arbirtrary, it just worked). We'll select them
and export them all.
you may note that a ~30 minute episode takes ~5.5 minutes to export. That's over wi-fi on a decent computer while the Tablo was doing nothing. YMMV.
Configuration DataShould you ever need to wipe reset the app, the configuration data is located in the following locations by OS:
- Win C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\tablo-tools
- Mac ~/Library/Application Support/tablo-tools
- Linux ~/.config/tablo-tools
White Screen of Death
So long as you haven't disabled it, any error you receive will have been reported to us already.Sometimes you'll run into a problem that causes the app to crash with no warning or explanation - simply a full screen of white. Ouch.
First, please make sure you are running the current version: v0.2.4
Right, you already are.
Again, so long as you haven't disabled it, any error you receive will have been reported to us already.If you have disabled it or just want to, please follow these steps to gather information so the issue can be tracked down and fixed.
- Open the app
In the top menu, click
View -> Toggle Developer Tools(a pane will open to right)
- Do whatever caused the problem until it happens again. keep track of the steps (video below), record it, etc
Click consoleat the top of the new pane
Right clickin that new pane and
Uploadthat file with your report on the issue.
If you are unable to upload the file, you can also post the contents to Pastebin and send along that link.
Why Aren't They Signed?
Both Windows and MacOS require their respective installer packages to be
signed in order to have a nice, peaceful, security warning free
experience. MacOS goes a step further and prevents auto-updating even
after allowing you to install.
The problem, at least in the context of an open source side project like this, is that the signing certificates required (1 each) run at least $100 USD per year per certificate.
Problems, Questions, Feedback?Know that so long as you haven't disabled it, most errors you receive will have been reported to us, so we're probably aware. Please don't let that stop you from reporting problems, though, as that can help a lot!
