[mythtv] FTA Satellite developer wish list

	I'm been trying to set up a FTA satellite PCI card receiver (North
America)for mythtv. I've encountered a few speed bumps.

So I've got an "itch". Before I begin to scratch, do the developer(s)
have a wish list, that might coincide with my "problems"

Some ideas:
Change / Check box the frequency, symbol rates from KHz to MHz
Investigate how the LNB settings work. Specifically dual lnb and the
switch frequency and rotor settings.
Implement a signal strength feed back to the rotor settings.
Possibly add a fine tune motor control to the initial rotor setup.

Not sure just some ideas.

	I've been struggling to get mythtv to receive FTA satellite signals and
finally got a successful tune last night. But I'm thinking something is
broke in the setup process. 

	My hope is to get a FTA motorized C / Ku band receiver working such
that mythtv would rotate the satellite dish and record programs driven
by schedules direct.
