<p>WLAN, bluetooth, DVB, DAB, ... I'm not getting any data!</p> <ul> <li>Is my antenna set up properly?</li> <li>Is it switched on?</li> <li>Am I picking up anything?</li> <li>Where's the carrier?</li> <li>How's the SNR?</li> <li>Is the error correction happy?</li> <li>What exactly is contained in this channel?</li> <li>Is it encrypted, do I have credentials?</li> </ul> <p>Similar questions arise for wireless broadcast and network connections. It's a huge task to solve all of these, so write a framework to plug in modules for each stage in each stack. They may be as simple as to call an external program, or a loadable module linked to an appropriate library, or completely open coded.</p>
<p>Benefits over the individual existing tools will be a familiar look&feel (Qt) and systematic, step-by-step debugging of problems. Once solved, the established reception / connection may be handed back to the specialised tools (VDR, wpa-supplicant, udev,...)</p>
