       rootv - display TV using the Xvideo extention

       rootv [ options ]

       rootv puts a video to some window.  By default it creates its own window, but you can also
       ask it to use the root window (thus the name) or any other window.  rootv needs the Xvideo

       rootv itself provides no way to control video/audio/tuner.  You can use v4lctl to do this.

       rootv knows a number of command line options to modify the behaviour.

       -help  Print a short description of all command line options.

	      Be verbose.  That will dump some debug messages to stderr.

       -root  Put the video onto the root window instead of creating a new window.

       -id <win>
	      Put the video into the window <win> instead of creating a new window.

       -station <st>
	      Tune  station <st>.  This just calls v4lctl, which in turn will look up the station
	      in your ~/.xawtv config file.

	      Don't toggle mute.  By default rootv will unmute the TV card  when  it  starts  and
	      mute it on exit.	It does this using the XV_MUTE attribute (if available).

       -port <n>
	      Use  Xvideo  port  <n>.  Try the -verbose switch if you want to know which ones are

       -bg    Fork into background.

       -wm    Print WindowMaker menu (set stations using v4lctl).
