Antenna Signal Strength

I’m not sure this is possible on a Tablo but it would be very nice to have. Something similar to what was on the DirecTV Box (replaced by my Tablo) showing the satellite signal strength. Instead showing our Antenna Signal Strength for each channel.

From what little research I’ve done this doesn’t seem to be as easy as it sounds. For it to work, it seems like, it would have to be in the device (Tablo) and actually measure the signal the Tablo is using to display and record. If you’re an electrical engineer don’t laugh to hard at my over simplification.:smile:

Maybe one of the Tablo engineers could comment. Is this possible, is it something Tablo would consider?

Thanks.

I would also like that feature, Something like having the functionality of a Winegard RFL-332 Sensar Pro Signal Meter but with an app on Android or include on Tablo app, to ajust direction of antenna for maximum strength for a channel at a time (not a full rescan) in a near real-time display. Thanks

Considering you can get a weak signal error message for a failed recording - yet no real help to remedy the situation.

If it were a vague something went wrong message, then you wouldn’t fuss with it :poop:
