Watch Signal Strength (DVB-T)

Added by A Blarb over 1 year ago

Is there a faster way than the web interface? It updates every 2 or 3 seconds. To adjust an anntena this is too slow.

Use

femon -H

----
usage: femon [options]
     -H        : human readable output
     -A        : Acoustical mode. A sound indicates the signal quality.
     -r        : If 'Acoustical mode' is active it tells the application
                 is called remotely via ssh. The sound is heard on the 'real'
                 machine but. The user has to be root.
     -a number : use given adapter (default 0)
     -f number : use given frontend (default 0)
     -c number : samples to take (default 0 = infinite)

Thanks. Even on FreeBSD (multimedia/dvb-apps)
But it updates only once a second and I get nonsense values:
signal 49%, snr 0%
Human readable is: "Status SC"??

Signal under 55-65 is not good.
Need to be more patient.

no, reception is ok now (tvh: signal -46dB, snr 24dB), but

# femon -H
FE: Silicon Labs Si2168 (DVBT)
Problem retrieving frontend information: Device not configured
status SCVYL | signal  49% | snr   0% | ber -5720 | unc 0 | FE_HAS_LOCK
Problem retrieving frontend information: Device not configured

^C

BER value need to be ZERO "0"
