This is not an issue with the FusionHDTV 5 USB Gold driver... Rather, 
the lgdt330x frontend driver does not yet support the reporting of 
signal strength.  For more information, you should search the linux-dvb 
mailing list archives.  Google this search term: "lgdt330x signal 
strength" , and you should land on an email thread between Mac Michaels 
and I, discussing this topic.  Further searches will land on discussions 
involving Rusty Scott and Taylor Jacobs.  You can try the patches 
proposed by Taylor at the time he released the HD5000 patch, but I 
recommend that you also read Mac Michael's explanation as per why the 
patch was incorrect.  Other users have reported success with the patch, 
but I have not tried it myself.

A short answer:  The frontend driver doesn't support it, and will not 
support it anytime soon.
