The necessary contact information can be found in plugin's source
A few years ago I had an idea to provide audible tone that varies
according to current signal level. Unfortunately, I encountered some
problems while implementing it and the feature never saw the daylight:
- I couldn't get the live tv video and signal tone work at the same
time, when using budget cards and full featured card as tv out.
- DVB drivers signal strength and signal-to-noise values works correctly
only for a few cards. There're plenty of cards that provides inverted
or zero strengt values.
However, I implemented several SVDRP commands into the plugin and those
commands can be used to provide the above mentioned functionality via
an external application in a similar manner as in 'femonspeak'. 
If you'll have a neat idea about new features, just drop me an email.
