Ability to see signal levels and auto tune HD missing on Contour 1 box
I recently traded in my old failing Scientific Atlanta DVR and they gave me a Contour 1 box. I like the new box better because the guide is superior to the old SA Rovi guide. But, I have two things I could do with my old box that I can't with my new one.
1. The old Rovi software would allow you to turn on a setting to "auto tune HD" channels. For example, if I want to watch ESPN here on channel 33, I just tapped 33 on my remote and it went to the HD channel. No more annoying 1033 to get to HD. A very nice feature that I can't find on the Contour 1. Not sure why they would take this away. Am I missing something in the settings?
2. Also on the old box I could tune to channel 1999 and see my tuner and other signal levels listed in DBs, along with the signal to noise ratio. This is useful in diagnosing issues if you are having pixilation or stuttering sound. Also don't see this on the Contour 1. Not sure why they would want to hide these useful features.
