Review from Matt Smith
Dream come true I was the guy with the laptop... So practical, silicondust should pay you and advertise the app on their site. I get all the info I need to aim the antenna without climbing ladders so often or lugging laptops to the roof in the middle of winter.
Great little app if you have an HDHomeRun, although it wasn't obvious how to use it, and there are no instructions. You have to make sure your phone is connected to the same network as the HDHomeRun, then click the scan button. You also have to make sure a channel is playing through the HDHomeRun. Then you'll see the Sig Strenth & Quality bars change. I don't know what Sym Quality is (not explained). Turn your antenna and watch how bars change until they're better, then lock your antenna in place.
Cannot manually enter IP for device Auto detection of the device is great if all of your network is fed by one WiFi router. If you have a larger or more complicated network setup to allow the WiFi network to access the wired network then you need an option for manual IP entry. Not complaining because it is free and I applaud the developer's effort. Just be aware it only works on very simple setups.
Great app to adjust the antenna! This app is very helpful in adjusting the antenna remotely. The only thing I could possibly find missing is the frequencies being tuned to. The app on the computer does show that when it scans though. Sometimes when the signal is less than 100% but still green the whole bat goes green.
A little buggy but worth its weight in gold I just installed an antenna in the attic, in August, in Houston. Needless to say I didn't want to stay up there long. This app let me measure signal strength from my phone while in the attic adjusting the antenna. I couldn't be more grateful.
Great for pointing the antenna Superb app for showing all the facets of digital TV reception - signal strength, signal to noise, and most importantly, symbol quality. Some channels with great strength and SN ratio have intermittent symbol dropouts that otherwise wouldn't be noticeable until viewing. This app shows it all. If you've got an HDHomeRun, you really should get this too.
I really want to use this, but the fact I am unable to access anything not on my wireless subnet immediately prevents me from using this. I understand not being able to scan, but at the very least let me manually designate an IP. It would stand to reason that people who choose to implement a networked OTA tuner would be the geeky sort, and maybe some of them would have a network that is atypical.
