Looks like it's the 4 tuner model. This is a good deal. Usually the 4 tuner refurbished model is priced at $199.

Looking into this now after seeing the other deal on HD Home Run extend. I don't have/use Plex but this should work well with the native Tablo software right?

How has the dependability of the hardware/service been for those who have been with Tablo for a while?

Used to have a Simple.TV gen 2 which died and have been using Kodi since. Looking for a better solution to watching local OTA content.

TIA!

Can anyone confirm if you can record 4 channels at the same time or can you only record 3 while watching a 4th?

It's got 4 tuners to be divided between whatever you want to do- watch or record

From everything I've read... you can do any combination of live tv stream and/or record up to a total of 4 concurrently

I have had this for a yeah and a half and have been happy. The company has been great with constant app and firmware updates, bug fixes, and adding capabilities. It's a bit more of a techy, slightly less polished solution than TiVo though. It does occasionally need to be rebooted and it does have its own issues. Specifically, tuning a channel takes about 12 seconds and you can't look at the guide while watching a channel.

Thanks for the insights! I ended up opting for the newer (dual) model with the 60gb of built in flash, and what appears to be a little better design for heat management. Will report back to let everyone know how it goes.

Oh yeah, if you can live with 2 tuners, then go with that. I forgot about the heat thing. The heat sink is on the bottom of the original ones for some reason. I think I was originally having some issues with it so I cleared things away from it and also have it sitting on its side. I think this seems to help dissipate heat.
