Can you show channel info like signal strength?

What hidden views can be exposed?

If you are talking about signal strength of channels - yes.

What input are you referring to? TV,WMC,etc?

TV OTA ATSC using a tuner card in a windows 7 pc running WMC.


I have seen the fast scrolling signal strength meter as it zooms by in the setup TV portion of WMC.
Where it scrolls a list of channels.
That is useless for my intentions.

When you do a channel scan, it shows the signal strength, so why is it useless?

It does not stay on one channel continuously keeps moving from channel to channel in a loop.

So if you were moving the antenna around, if it keeps jumping channels how is that any good?

When I do a channel scan and click on the channel, it stops.

Do you do a channel scan in TV setup?
I did not know you can click on one in the scrolling looping list.

The point is say your trying to position an out door antenna. So you do need it to stay on that channel while moving antenna to get the best position..
