Signal strength for antenna aiming?

Post by milosz »

Is there some way to see signal strength in near real time so I can see if I am rotating my antenna for best reception? Or do I have to just rotate the antenna a little then do a channel scan. rotate the antenna a little more then do another channel scan, rotate the antenna a little more then do another channel scan.... etc?

Install the Windows app (not the Windows 10 store one) from here:
https://www.silicondust.com/support/downloads/

In the folder C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun you will see the "hdhomerun_config_gui.exe"
Use it while the desired channel is playing and find which tuner is in use. It will show technical data about the reception signal.
