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.
This option starts tvtime in 16:9 aspect ratio mode.
This option starts tvtime in 4:3 aspect ratio mode.
Show usage information.
Start tvtime in fullscreen mode.
Start tvtime in windowed mode.
Set the fullscreen window position. Use this if you have a projector to
help tvtime fit properly onto your screen.
Additional config file to load settings from.
Sets the height of the output window to start up at in scanlines. The
default output window size is 576 scanlines.
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.
video4linux device to use (defaults to /dev/video0).
VBI device to use (defaults to /dev/vbi0).
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.
On startup, tvtime will tune to the given channel. Otherwise, the
channels from the config file will be used.

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 OSD.
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"
The mixer device and channel for the volume controls. (defaults to
/dev/mixer:line). Valid channels are:
