I have some reservations about my signal strength / quality, and would like to know if anybody out knows of a utility that I could download to check this.
I have a DVB-S card (BlackGold) and want to rule out signal strength for some issues that I am having.
My HTPC - Case Antec Fusion Remote, MOBO Intel DH67BLB3, CPU Intel Core i5-2400S 2.5 GHz, RAM 8GB DDR3 1333, HDD 120Gig Corsair Force Series 3 SSD system | WD Caviar Black 2TB data, Tuners Black Gold BGT3595 dual DVB-S/S2, dual DVB-T, Video nVIDIA GeForce GT 520, 1024MB, Sound Intel® High Definition Audio (onboard), OS Windows 7 x64
There is no way to get accurate measures of signal strength (dBuV) and quality (BER) from a BDA driver unless the manufacturer provides a custom property set extension. So far as I'm aware, Blackgold have not done that, therefore your only option is really to get signal checked with a proper signal meter. Perhaps you could elaborate on the issues a little?
Just a small correction to my statement: there is no way unless the manufacturer/reseller provides a driver extension *or* they define the technical meanings of the signal statistics available from the BDA driver. Again, to my knowledge Blackgold haven't done either of those things...
