It would be great to be able to specify the network interface an IPTV network should go through.

This would allow adding multiple IPTV networks where we can specify to run one on a VPN or not. E.g.

IPTV network A geo-blocked to country 1 can be set to run over tun0, whereas IPTV Network B which isn't geo-blocked can be simply run on the eth0.

Unfortunately, while I can read C and roughly understand it, I have next to zero coding experience when it comes to its development. However, I would be more than happy to learn if you have some time to help me set up the dev env, and the general workflow. If so, I'd be happy to implement it.

Stop with these requests to end users, they request function.
Why don't you recommend donating to a Paypal account,
and paying the programmer who wrote the code for the most requested features?

As you can see on the overview page the policy for feature requests is pretty clear:

Due to lack of resources feature requests will only be accepted if the author will work on it.

I assume that everyone submitting a feature request has read that. So there are 2 options:
1. Someone submits a feature request and wants to work on it, in that case it's perfectly fine to tell them the next steps necessary
2. Someone submits a feature request and doesn't want to work on it and hasn't read the policy. In that case the request should be marked as invalid/rejected. This should become clear when someone is asked to implement it and submit a PR.

The problem with collecting donations and paying a programmer is that there simply are no programmers working on Tvheadend. I've told you this multiple times already. Also no programmer will start to work for 10$ or even 50$, that's not even enough to pay them for one hour. Collecting donations for something that I know is never going to happen is fraud in my opinion and I'm not going to do that.

If you don't like this feel free to find people who want to implement feature requests or create a fork with different policies. Maybe you'll find more developers. Or your project turns into a graveyard for feature requests and bug reports as you're accepting all of them but nobody is taking care of them.
