The necessary contact information can be found in plugin's source 
package.

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'. [1]

If you'll have a neat idea about new features, just drop me an email.
