       tvtime-configure - change settings in the tvtime configuration file


       tvtime-configure [ OPTION ] ...


       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.


       -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.

              o   top
              o   bottom
              o   centre (default)

       -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.

       -n, --norm=NORM
              The  mode  to  set the tuner to (defaults to NTSC).  Valid modes

              o   NTSC

       -f, --frequencies=NAME
              The channels you are  receiving  with  the  tuner  (defaults  to

              o   russia

       -R, --priority=PRI
              Sets  the  process  priority (see nice(1)) that tvtime should be
              run at.

       -t, --xmltv=FILE
              Reads XMLTV listings from the given file to display on the  OSD.
              Channels  are  looked  up  based  on their name, and tvtime will
              display the show title, sub-title and show  description  on  the

       -l, --xmltvlanguage=LANG
              Use  XMLTV  data in given language, if available.  Languages are
              represented by their two-letter language code (for example, "de"
              for German).  The default language used in the file will be used
              if this is unset or set to "none"
