I've been a Tablo owner for around a year and a half now. Once we got the kinks ironed out, it's definitely a nice tool to have, but there are a couple warnings that I would give to anyone looking to purchase one, both of which are points mentioned above. First, if you can't hardwire the Tablo to your router or connect it via powerline ethernet adapter, I wouldn't bother getting one. Our router is in the basement and our antenna line in from the roof only goes as far as the main floor of our house. Attempting to watch anything over WiFi was an exercise in frustration, with constant buffering, often for extended periods of time. Every other service we used for viewing TV via WiFi was fine throughout the house (NetFlix, Sportsnet Now, Youtube, etc.), but Tablo would constantly buffer for both recordings and live TV. Now that we have it connected with a powerline ethernet adapter, this is no longer an issue. Second, if you're looking to use Tablo via Chromecast, forget it. Their marketing department should really stop claiming compatibility, since it drops streams constantly and doesn't allow you to fast forward or rewind. This problem appears exclusive to Chromecast, as I've never had any similar problems viewing on a laptop, phone or Roku. Lastly, if you do have troubleshooting issues, their tech support, while knowledgeable and helpful, are only available during regular business hours, making it difficult to troubleshoot issues unless you are home Monday to Friday, 9-5. Hopefully this helps with your decision.

The resume function works fine. Watch a program in one room, go to another room, show resumes from last point.

No support for 5.1 audio and doesn't look like it's coming soon according to Tablo spokespeople.
