While the signal power does not mean much by itself, in combination with the other two numbers that HDHomeRun Config Gui
reports, it could be useful.
Please report all three numbers on a channel your other tuner handles well. "Signal Quality" is a measure of the signal to noise
ratio, "Symbol Quality" is a measure of how much error correction is going on after equalization. "Symbol Quality" needs to be
at 100% to get reliable reception.
