tvtime-configure — change settings in the tvtime configuration file

Synopsis

tvtime-configure [ OPTION ] ...

Description

tvtime-configure allows a user to set configuration settings for tvtime without starting the application. This is useful for installation programs such as debconf to let them configure tvtime without having to write a parser for the configuration file. The command line options are a subset of those for tvtime itself.

Options

-a, --widescreen
This option starts tvtime in 16:9 aspect ratio mode.
-A, --nowidescreen
This option starts tvtime in 4:3 aspect ratio mode.
-h, --help
Show usage information.
-m, --fullscreen
Start tvtime in fullscreen mode.
-M, --window
Start tvtime in windowed mode.
-p, --fspos=POS

Set the fullscreen window position. Use this if you have a projector to help tvtime fit properly onto your screen.

·top

-F, --configfile=FILE
Additional config file to load settings from.
-H, --height=HEIGHT
Sets the height of the output window to start up at in scanlines. The default output window size is 576 scanlines.
-I, --inputwidth=SAMPLING
V4L input scanline sampling (defaults to 720. This sets how many pixels per scanline to request from the capture card. A higher setting gives better quality, while a lower setting means we do less work, and so tvtime will run faster. If you have a slower CPU (like, less than 500Mhz or so), maybe values of 480 or 400 might suit you best. For best quality, choose a high value like 720 or 768. Many capture cards cannot sample higher than 768 pixels per scanline.
-d, --device=NAME
video4linux device to use (defaults to /dev/video0).
-b, --vbidevice=DEVICE
VBI device to use (defaults to /dev/vbi0).
-i, --input=INPUTNUM
video4linux input number (defaults to 0). Cards commonly have a bunch of sources, for example, on my WinTV card, source 0 is my tuner and source 1 is the composite input.
-c, --channel=CHANNEL
On startup, tvtime will tune to the given channel. Otherwise, the channels from the config file will be used.
