Re: Where is KwinTV? Again.

Hi i can only say that thats right xawtv is a great proggy im using it under 
kde too and it runs fine , what you said about gvidm it might not be 
neccesary to use it in conjunktion with xawtv to fit xawtv to your desktop 
res. thanks to video4linux you can run xawtv in real fullscreen mode even 
under your high desktop resolution ... just add a:
	Load		"v4l"
to your modules section in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and you wont need to 
switch resolution anymore it will automaticly fit itself to your screen as 
soon as you go into fullscreenmode if you then set it "always on top" hop you 
got a teevee. 
Try it! v4l rocks!
