       scantv - scan a v4l device for TV stations.


       scantv [ options ]


       scantv scans a v4l device for available TV stations and writes a xawtv/fbtv config file.


       -i input
              set tv  input (Television/Composite1/S-video and so on).  Default is Television.

       -n norm
              set tv  norm.   scantv will ask interactively if none is given.

       -f table
              set frequency table.  scantv will ask interactively if none is given.

       -o outfile
              specify output file.  If none is specified, scantv writes to stdout.

       -c device
              specify video device file.  Default is /dev/video0.

       -D driver
              specify video driver name.  Default is "libv4l".

       -C device
              specify vbi device file.  Default is /dev/vbi0.

       -s     skip channel scan, just write norm + freqtab to the config file.

       -a     Do a full scan (i.e. all frequencies, not just the ones from the frequency table).


       xawtv(1), fbtv(1)
