There seems to be very few folks that tvtime does not work well for. 2
that I've seen thus far. For the rest of us, tvtime is miles ahead of
xawtv. My tv quality is MUCH better w/ tvtime, and CPU usage is way down.
The OSD display and keybindings are awesome. IMHO tvtime should be
included in the distro proper, as it's a better choice for most people
(that I've been in contact with), and xawtv should live in Extras for
those of you that cannot use tvtime.
