Hmm, I don't get it.  I also like the look and feel of my KDE desktop,
but I think that xawtv fits in perfectly.  In fact, I've tried both
kwintv and zapping (GNOME tv application) and was disappointed by the

I've noticed that I don't really like any menus and toolbars and such
for my tv application.  With xawtv, I get a window with the tv image and
