Using a TIVO or certain converter boxes I can easily tune an antenna by using three indicators: signal strength, corrected errors and uncorrected errors. The last two are the most important.

Now I'm looking for a "travel size" TV that can show all three parameters. Any suggestions?

DVR diagnostics with signal strength, SNR, RS uncorrected and corrected is very beneficial in fine tuning the antenna. And it does two stations at the same time, very beneficial if you have a difficult installation.

It would be grand if TiVo put the DVR Diagnostics on the iPad app. This could save a person many hours of work and a lot of dollars.

There are some Sony TV's that have some Antenna Signal Quality Information for one station at a time.

Not a TV but certainly portable. There is an Android app that can read that data from a SiliconDust HDHomerun or you could connect an HDHR to a win7 laptop or netbook. That would give you signal strength, signal to noise and symbol quality. Not quite an actual error count but similar information.
