Summary:
FreeView AV systems embedded in TV sets and FreeView boxes automatically re-tune on a set period.
MediaPortal is a FreeView system. Should we introduce this capability ?

Area:
TV Tuner

Description:
The TvTuner may soon be able to tune the strongest channel. This may increase its reliability in channel detection and selection.
If that works well, we could periodically re-tune and take the strongest channels automagically into the guide.
We could surface an option to do this, with an associated period of activation. Since its TV Tuner, it happens seemlessly even while being watched by the user. Ideally we'd need to add the new channel to the EPG scanned channels too.

Hello,

I haven;t forgotten about this thread.
I think the next step is to look into the existing UI stuff and extend it to incorporate it.

@Jasmeet_181 : thanks for sharing the detail !
