General info

TV-Viewer is a frontend to watch and record TV on linux. The project started in 2007 and is designed to work with hardware build-in MPEG 2 encoders. This means all devices supported by the ivtv, cx18, pvrusb2 and cx88-blackbird drivers should work with TV-Viewer. The program is written in Tcl/Tk, so it does not rely on a special desktop environment. Current status is stable and the software is fully usable. Nevertheless development is continuing. A list of the most important features can be found here.
