[mythtv-users] signal strength for OTA digital tv

OTA=Over the Air
My ATI HDTV Wonder works great but the only time I get signal
strength information is if I "watch live tv" and keep hitting (F7 or
F4 - I forget) and this actually seems to crash myth. But that's not
the point. The point is I prefer to use a differnent computer to measure
signal strength (one closer to the attic where the antenna is) so I run
azap which works great but it seems I must kill mythbackend first.
1) Is there another way to ask the back end what the signal strength
is of a station and get updates every second or two like azap?
2) Is it okay to use kill to stop the mythbackend or is there a better
way? Later I do shutdown -r now to start it back up but what is
a simpler way?
