Vizio OTA Signal Strength

Do Vizio TVs not have an OTA signal strength meter or indicator?

I have a Vizio E600i-B3, wondering if there is a way to see the channel signal strength when watching over an antenna. I'm not seeing anything, I didn't see anything in the manual, read some posts on here from a few years ago, that seemed to indicate that Vizio TVs don't have such a meter. Wondering if that is still the case.

Not a big deal either way, just wondering if I'm missing it some where.

I can't answer your question specific to your Vizio model but a lot of signal meters can be misleading in that what they indicate is received signal strength and not necessarily signal quality. You can have a strong signal but poor quality due to interferences. My LG for example has a fairly decent "signal meter" but I've only used it once or twice, and that was mainly just to play around with it. If you get the stations you want, most, if not all of the time and there isn't any pixelating ro drop-outs, you're fine whether you're at 80% or 100%.
