I wish TiVo had made the signal strength dynamic. But you can go back a page and then forward to see changes. A longer USB extension might help to find a sweet spot. a few feet away from the Mini VOX I have an A93 Mini using a RE6500 as a wireless bridge. It has a -60dbm signal, runs 24/7 and never disconnects. It's my bedroom Mini. The kitchen A93 Mini was the one I referenced in my previous post. It's on the same floor as the router.
