No. As a rule we don't accept feature requests at all - it's patches or 
nothing. You are free to add such 'requests' to the wishlist in the Wiki, 
just don't expect anyone to start work on the feature.

So the correct solution would be to either contract a developer to write a 
patch for DVB-S Radio or tell your customers that you are unable to provide 
that feature at this time.

As far as your request for someone to work with on those data streams. The 
correct approach would have been to start work yourself, do as much as 
possible and then come to the list with what you have learnt so far. Coming 
to the list before you've got a specific question or written any code gives 
the impression that you want someone else to do much of the work.
