Lack of signal strength indicators on all platforms

I noticed some time ago that I no longer have signal strength indicators via any platform. Any suggestions on why and how to fix it? I do remember never seeing it via Android but at least I used used have it on Chrome and iPad…but no more.

Pretty sure it only shows when you are selecting the channels to begin with. Although I think it would be better if it stayed so you know what it was. But maybe best to not see since it may have change, ie moved the antenna, etc

I would almost swear I used to see them in Chrome after they were already selected. And I’m thinking it would help to see strength when working resolve problems. Ok, so going from 5 to 4 dots probably wouldn’t help but if it dropped to 1 or 2 it would be helpful to know that.

Well, it never updates on it’s own. The only time signal strength is show accurately is when you run the channel update.

But, I thought it used to be there too, but I noticed a while back it wasn’t. Just never said anything

Yeah ok that makes sense…and glad it isn’t just me!

The signal strength moved a while back - it is now buried one menu deeper. From Settings, select Edit Channel Lineup, and the signal strength is shown there.

Interesting, but I assume that is old value, not current?

Probably the original scanned value - just moved to another screen. But I don’t know for sure.

I’m debating unplugging my coax to see.

Oh and thanks for pointing that out!

Definitely original scanned value. Signal strength is not dynamic.

Can it be made dynamic? Add to the never ending list.


That has already been requested but that’s a BIG job and it would take up a significant amount of internal resources on the Tablo. That being said, it’s still on the list of things to look at as we move forward.

It would be a nice to have but I’m assuming it would have to be built in to Live TV when viewing a channel or somewhere in Settings where you could select a channel to view it’s signal strength. In any case it would be limited to one channel at a time due to the fact you would need to tie up one tuner to evaluate the signal.

Most TVs display the current signal strength as you tune single channels. I assume they are capturing that during the tuning process, which would make it much easier to do on the Tablo.
