Does the HR20-100 have a OTA signal strength meter . If so how do I get to it to test my OTA channels. I can not find it in the help section. Thank you.

Go under SAT and antenna setup in the menu. Then you will see I believe it says edit antenna or something like that. It is under that.

Pushing "right arrow" and "info" simultaneously on the HR10-250(not the remote buttons--but on the receiver itself) gave the strengths.Does it work the same on the HR20?

What is the scale for the signal strength? for example, 0-100? dB?
