Hi Valian,

great to hear from you!
Well, Tkinter won't be of much help (we don't want to introduce yet
another GUI framework), but your experience in working with GUIs would
be of help. For other GUI Frameworks, aim for Qt5 / PyQt5.

So, the real issue here is that the RTL dongles simply aren't
sufficient for this project – you'll need access to something that
gives you a lot more bandwidth, and a fast PC. So, you picked one of
the ideas that are actually necessarily hardware-dependent, I'm afraid.

Are you very set on TV? If that's the case, we can look into what you
could achieve without access to capable SDR hardware, but that would
basically amount to coming up with a completely new idea, and finding a
new mentor for that.

If you're not really focused on TV, you could do other GUI-related
work. For example, the "Qt Widgets improvements" would be an option
(though that really requires come C++ experience and sufficient
familiarity with Qt), or, the "Filter Design Tool Enhancements". To be
frank, the task alone to bring it over to Qt5 (and get rid of PyQWT),
to make it truly concurrent, and then to add a couple new features
would be a very interesting and helpful addition!

Best regards,
