I don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but here is a neat little method to determine the Signal Strength and Signal Quality via URL network on all Roku OS TVs which is more detailed than what the signal bar meter shows.
Make sure your Roku TV and PC, tablet or smartphone is connected to the same network.
Open a browser and enter the followinf URL: http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8060/query/tv-active-channel (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX being your Roku TV's IP) which can be found in your Roku TV's Settings > Network > About

You should get a XML tree that shows the Signal Strength and Signal Quality and details about the channel you're on:

<signal-quality>68</signal-quality>
<signal-strength>-51</signal-strength>

Interesting. I see it's documented here and here on the roku site.

You could script it so that you get a channel list from /query/tv-channels then tune each channel with /launch/tvinput.dtv and then get the per-channel stats with /query/tv-active-channel

I see there's a python util in progress for controlling a Roku via Python here.
