The Quad HDMI marks the second OTA DVR from parent company Nuvyyo that lets viewers connect directly to a TV instead of a Wi-Fi router. The OTA DVR plugs into a HDMI port, and includes a dedicated remote control.

The Ottawa, Canada-based company released a two-tuner version, the Tablo Dual HDMI DVR, back in November.

“The TV-connected Tablo DUAL HDMI DVR was so well received by customers that we immediately made plans to launch a Tablo QUAD HDMI for TV fans with larger families or channel lineups,” Grant Hall, CEO of Nuvyyo, said. “With this latest addition to our product family, we now offer an over-the-air DVR model to fit the needs of every cord cutter.”

Tablo QUAD HDMI OTA DVR connects to any TV antenna. It stores recordings on external USB hard drives from 1TB to 8TB. The company says the QUAD HDMI is designed to handle up to 1000 hours of HDTV recording storage.

The Tablo QUAD HDMI can stream live TV and recorded programs to other televisions within the home.

The other televisions can tap into Tablo using the Tablo app. Tablo has apps on Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV. 

To use the HDMI Tablo HDMI with additional TVs, viewers need to subscribe to the Tablo TV Guide Data Service. That service costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. 

Other models, including the Tablo DUAL Lite, and Tablo Quad DVR, don’t require a subscription to watch live TV on multiple screens.
