aatv - a program to watch TV in a text-based console
aatv is a small program which allows you to watch TV in a text-based console, i.e. in a virtual console or in an xterm. If you just want to see what it does, and don’t want to mess with fre‐ xawtv(1) for example, and then launch aatv. When aatv starts, it keeps the frequency the card is tuned on. You might have to change the video mode (to PAL, NTSC or SECAM) in the config file. Keys: q Quit the program. c Switch from TV to composite, or from composite to TV. s Change video mode (PAL, SECAM, NTSC). v Flip image. b Show the frequency, you may then press enter or type a new value. AA image controls: f Turn ON/OFF fast rendering. a No dithering. e Dithering mode 1. r Dithering mode 2. p Show the contrast value, you may then press enter or type a new value. m Decreases the contrast. ! Increases the contrast. o , l , : : Do the same with brightness. Tuner image controls: i , k , ; : Contrast. u , j , , : Brightness. y , h , n : Whiteness.
