ivtv-tune is a command line utility that is used to control the tuner, either by absolute frequency or by a frequency table and channel number. It replaces ptune-ui.pl, a perl based utility that performs the same function. ptune-ui is a perl based tuning application that includes a graphical interface.
ivtv-tune is included in the ivtv source under the utils/ivtv-tune/ directory, and is installed with make install.
Usage: ivtv-tune [OPTIONS]:
-h --help Print help and exit -V --version Print version and exit -cSTRING --channel=STRING set new channel -dSTRING --device=STRING set video device node -fFLOAT --frequency=FLOAT set new frequency (MHz) -l --list-channels list all channels and their frequencies (default=off) -L --list-freqtable list all available frequency mappings (default=off) -tSTRING --freqtable=STRING set frequency map to use -xSTRING --xawtv=STRING set new channel using custom map from ~/.xawtv
For example, to tune the second card to channel 10 in Australia:
ivtv-tune -taustralia -c10 -d/dev/video1
