Not sure. On the HDHomerun_config_gui it list in the status section:

Physical Channel 8vsb:nn

Signal Strength %

Signal Quality %

Symbol Quality %

On my offending channel the Signal Quality would jump from 90% to 0 and 
back every few seconds.  Then the Symbol Quality would go from 100 to 40 
and back. Signal Strength would stay at 90-100 without any change.
