Display Signal Quality - Zweikeks - 12-01-2015


my system is a WeTek OE Box, Kodi 15.2, OE 6.0.0, VDR, DVB-S/S2.
I would like to look up the signal quality. Is this possible
- on the command line? Femon perhaps?
- as an overlay? By pressing 'o' on the keyboard, CodecInfo? I am missing the signal quality there as well as the "Show signal quality" in System->Settings->TV->Playback. Compare My menu does not have the "Show signal quality" parameter. However, there is a <signalquality> entry in guisettings.xml.
- as a nice overlay, see here:

I would be glad to get some hints,

Or asked the other way round:
Can you display the signal quality (strength, SNR, BER or the like) of your DVB-S/S2 tuner?
How do you do that?

For my DVB-S/S2 tuner I can,
but for DVB-T2 tuner Geniatech T230 I can't - it shows all the zeros, whereas in Tvheadend WEB interface I can see SNR properly

PS: it's x86_64 system I have

Hello bam,

thanks for sharing.
So, how do you do it? By pressing 'o' in the Confluence skin of Kodi?
Or do you use a command line tool?
Does it look like this screenshot?

I am using the WeTek OpenELEC Box with a DVB S/S2 tuner.
It seems that in my Kodi 15.2 with Confluence skin the signal quality display is disabled.
I can't enable it via the GUI. The menu item is not displayed.
It is set to false in guisettings.xml. If I set it to true, it has no effect and is overwritten later on.
Maybe I have to use another skin or displaying the signal quality is not supported on my system at all.

Yes it's pressing 'o', it looks similar but my backend is Tvheadend, not VDR. And I have "Show signal quality" item in System->Settings->TV->Playback

Ah - it's so simple. I had to alter the Settings Level to Advanced or Expert... (see below)
Obviously the highly sophisticated signal quality on a somewhat hidden key is not for everyone ;-)

bam - I am glad you confirmed that it has to work.

So, finally for my WeTek OE Box, Kodi 15.2, OE 6.0.0, VDR or tvheadend, DVB-S/S2:
- To get the signal quality as a nice overlay:
Switch to Settings Level Advanced or Expert in the lower left corner of the settings window.
In the submenu Playback switch on "Show signal quality".
While a TV channel is playing fullscreen press 'o' on an attached USB keyboard.
- The signal quality overlay is also working with tvheadend.
(- femon can be installed with the add-on "dvb-apps" from the unsupported unofficial OpenELEC repository.
I didn't get it to work right out of the box. Didn't spent time on it since I don't need it (yet). It is not needed for the overlay.)
