one way to view the tuner status without being in the UI (if you should so desire) is to use python. this little 5 line program will do it. you can expand on it from there and just parse the elements you want displayed.
url= “http://10.0.0.1/DIRECT/getTunerStatus” #insert your IP instead
data = json.load(urllib2.urlopen(url))
Okay that was lazy of me. Here is a way to parse the elements of the .json that you want displayed.
ts = requests.get(‘http://10.0.0.1/DIRECT/getTunerStatus’).json()
print ts [‘result’][‘snr’]
save this as a .py file.
if using linux you can run this every N seconds in a terminal with the following. Assuming you named your file TunerStatus.py
in terminal type:
watch -n 1 python TunerStatus.py and hit enter.
This will display the values every second
