Big News from Tablo, and I mean Big.

Looks like Tablo will be sending out one hell of a firmware update and we are extremely happy here at The Man Cave Cinema. The makers of Tablo have been hard at work updating their DVR with some of the most wanted features from the Tablo community.

No need for me to explain any more I will let them fill you in. Here is the information from their blog.

Yes, you can get 1080p and 5.1 audio with Netflix. We also prove it!

We demonstrate in this video that 1080p and 5.1 audio can be achieved in Netflix. The Home Theater illuminati constantly doubt this and hence they always poo-poo it without trying it or working to fix it. Yes, BD is better, but don't tell us that Netflix is totally unacceptable for Home Theater enjoyment. With only 25MB/s download speed and 10 items attached to the router we can still achieve the best that Netflix can display.

Here is the proof!

The Man Cave Cinema Rant Special Intro #1

While we were rebuilding The Man Cave Cinema HQ computer the HAL 9000.5 we descided to also get a little creative with our You Tube video intro.

We are kind of fond of it.

But let us know what YOU think?

Tablo Community to the Rescue

Many Cord Cutters have added DVR's to their setups, but one DVR that we really like and recommend here at The Man Cave Cinema is Tablo.

The great thing about Tablo is that they are continuing to fully and aggressively develop their product by adding new features and upgrades.

While they are doing that, the healthy user community at the Support Forums is in full action. There is a user called "Jestep" who seems to be a developer by trade and he has created an app called "Tablo Exporter".

Tablo Exporter is designed to do what the title says, is to export your movies and shows from the Tablo Hard Drive and export it somewhere else. Many people are exporting their stuff to Plex Media Server so they can what their shows there and free up space on the Tablo HDD.

The great thing about it is that it's a multi platform app that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux with a great but simple user interface.

We at The Man Cave Cinema love this app, and we totally recommend it. It's easy to use and frankly a god send to anyone who wants to organize and keep their media.  We were able to pull out the whole series of Three's Company, WKRP, and Seinfeld.

Thanks Jestep!
