       alevt [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the alevt commands.

       alevt is a program to read teletext from analogue or DVB channels.


       -c <channel>
              channel name (dvb only)

       -ch -child <>
              child window

       -cs -charset <latin-1/2/koi8-r/iso8859-7>
              character set

       -h -help
              print this page

       -o <outfile>
              path + file for all services (dvb only)

       -p -parent <>
              parent window

       -s -sid <sid>
              service id (dvb only)

       -t -ttpid <ttpid>
              teletext pid (dvb only)

       -v -vbi <vbidev>
              vbi device

       Sequence: /dev/vbi; /dev/vbi0; /dev/video0; /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0

       Order is important! Each page number opens a new window
              with the previously given geometry, device, and display. stands for a page number and an optional
              subpage number (example: 123.4).

       The -child option requires a parent window. So it must
              be preceded by a parent or another child window.
