xatitv - GUI "TV in a Window" application from the GATOS package.
Xatitv is the main program shipped with GATOS. It allows GUI access to all GATOS functionality, save tv-out. The GUI is pretty self- explanatory, but here are the basics: - When first run, hit setup and configure format and options, than do a channel scan. - Use the three buttons labeled TV, CV and SV to select video input from TV tuner, Composite Video and SVHS respectively. - The Adv., Capture and Edit Channel buttons toggle other sections of the GUI. - Volume, Brightness, Contrast, Hue and Saturation can be modified by clicking the mouse at any location along their respective sliders. - The Edit Channel GUI can be used to set channel-specific video and audio settings (if a channel is too bright/dark, too loud/quiet, etc) and to remove bogus channels. It can also be used to name a channel so you can later select that channel by name. - There are many other feature, look around and tinker with them. - Most features have keyboard shortcuts: -Esc Quit. -Tab/Right-Click Hide/Show GUI. -F1-F8 Favorite channels (CTRL+Key to set). -F9-F12 Output debug info. -Numbers Change channel by number. -Letters/space Change channel by name. -Enter/Return Finish entering item (channel name/number). -Up/Down Scroll through settings. -Left/Right Change current setting. -Keypad +/- Change channel. -Backspace Switches to the previous channel that you spent more than 5 seconds at. -Keypad / Toggle mute. -Keypad * or Double-Click Toggle fullscreen Mode. -` or ~ Toggle closed captioning (CC). -> and < Increase/Decrease size of window by a factor of 2. -Pause Freeze capture on current frame. -PrintScreen Capture single frame (Snapshot).
Note, motion capture in xatitv use a special ".yuv" file format unique to gatos. Snapshots on the other hand save to ".ppm" files, which are viewable (and convertible) by most graphics programs. There is no automatic intelligence in xatitv to select this file's extension, so to make sure other programs don't get confused, always take snapshots to a ".ppm" file, and capture video to ".yuv" files. This should be fixed in the next version. Snapshots to files containing a number (eg: gatos000.ppm) will automatically increment the number in this filename for the next snapshot. So after taking a ppm snapshot to gatos000.ppm, xatitv will capture the next to gatos001.ppm, then gatos002.ppm, etc....
