I found a webpage which refers to a CVS patch which enable such a feature does anyone know 
  what happened to the patch???

Page is here==> http://www.ethics-gradient.net/myth/mythdvb2.html

Search for : "Collecting Data on Signal Quality"

"the facility to collect DVB signal statistics was added to MythTV after version 0.14 so 
at the moment it's only available in CVS versions. It's my first real contribution of code 
to Myth so if it doesn't work I guess you can blame me.

You can easily tell if it's included by pointing your browser to port 6544 on the machine 
where the backend is running (e.g. http://your-backend-machine:6544/.  If you see a box at 
the bottom of the page labelled "DVB Signal Information" then you can use this facility.
