Could be great but company seems to be resting on "good enough"

A good product and I want to see the company succeed but I'm afraid they won't because of a few short-comings: 1. I, like many others, had issues with the the guide at first. Had to contact tech support to get it resolved. The days spent scratching my head thinking I was doing something wrong create a poor first impression. The should be able to pro-actively fix this. 2. After a few months I had filled my 1TB USB drive. No problem I thought, that's what the second USB port is for, right? WRONG! It looks like that was their intention but for years now they haven't got around to adding support for two drives. That means you have no upgrade path except to throw away all your previously recorded programs. 3. My 4-tuner Tablo gets very warm. Almost too warm to touch in spots. They say this is normal but I worry about what it means for long-term reliability. Semiconductors don't tend to last as long when run at their upper thermal limits. 4. The device is attractive enough to sit in your entertainment unit but since it doesn't plug in to your TV, why bother? It makes more sense to located it with your router, but unlike most routers it doesn't have any mounting holes to get it up out of the way.

ideal cord cutting solution

Some earlier reviews noted a few kinks in setup. I found none with current version of hardware and firmware. Added 2Tb WD Passport and it was magic. Automatically identified available over the air signals. User Interface for scheduling couldn't be simpler. Went this route because basic TV is more than enough and cable pricing is too much. A cord cutter's dream.
