Value of -100 indicates no signal lock

What does the above actually mean ?

Im trying to sort out my stutter problems with a nova t 500 in mediaportal ,
i downloaded scanchannelsBDA and found the above as i was getting 50-60 for quality and -100 for signal.

Manufacturers of PCI tuner cards use various methods and various scales for reporting strengh and quality.  I think from external apps the numbers are pretty much unusable.

I get a -10000 strength from my HVR3000 on gbpvr, and yet a perfect picture.

If you're desperate for decent readings the bundled app may be of more use to you.
