Description

HDHomeRun being a network-based antenna has SNR and Signal Strength, but is an IPTV service. It would be nice to somehow allow the signal information from HDHomeRun to be ingested into TVHeadend. To do this, it would need a script interface similar to what you did for the xmltv grabbers. The tuner automatically selects which tuner to use on port 5004. The signal strength info is on port 80. The script would need to determine the tuner used and then report the Signal Strength and Signal Quality. The script could do this if the channel info was provided to the script. The translator could find it by correlating frequency, program number, or modulation lock. I would have no issue generating the script if an interface was provided to call the script to obtain the information.
