Option To Set Minimum "Signal Quality"?

Post by jseymour »

Hi Devs,

I'm sure you have a lot on your plates, what with the new Apple TV support, ATSC 3.0, etc., but I wonder if you'd entertain the thought of adding some kind of "minimum signal/symbol strength/quality to add channel" kind of a thing to the tuner configs?

We have all sorts of marginal channels showing up. They're just good enough to get captured by a regularly scheduled channel re-scan, but not nearly good enough to be actually usable. The ability for users to set minimum signal strength and/or signal quality and/or symbol quality for a station to be added I think would be a huge win. All three configurable would be wonderful, but, if there was going to be just one, I'd say signal quality should be the one. I've consistently found that to be the best predictor of a station's usability.
