You can now integrate the OTA tuners in a Tablo device into Channels DVR via Custom Channels.
How are Tablo OTA tuners compared to HDHRs? They look quite a bit larger and chunky physically? Is their native software just as bad as Silicon Dusts? Quality of the OTA streams, speed of tuning etc the same?
I did only very minimal testing, with a headless Tablo Dual. It was easy to setup via their iOS app, although I couldn't find any way to watch live tv there.
I did not subscribe to guide data or attach a hard drive.
Speed of tuning and quality is comparable to HDHR. The physical box is slightly bigger, maybe 20% bigger square and twice as tall. I think other models with integrated HDD and HDMI are bigger.
I would not recommend Tablo over HDHR. SiliconDust has a best-in-class API and tuner package. But if you have a Tablo tuner collecting dust, you can use it to add more tuners to your Channels DVR.
I'll test this out in the next few days, I have three Tablo quads, was hoping not to have to replace them all with HDHR units.

Did you set
TABLO_IP correctly in the docker run command?
I think i did
You need to add it under env
You guys are the best! Thank you
