NAME

tvtime-configure - change settings in the tvtime configuration file

 

SYNOPSIS

tvtime-configure [ OPTION ] ...

 

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

OPTIONS

-a, --widescreen
This option starts tvtime in 16:9 aspect ratio mode.

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
