              It  is  possible  to  pass  some  parameters  to  this  external
              application with % codes.

USAGE

       This sections describes how to use the application in docked state. See
       below for fullscreen mode usage.

       Button map:
           [ < ] [ > ] [ 0 ]
            <1>   <2>   <3>

       There  are  3  modes  of  operation on this applications. You can cycle
       through the 3 modes by clicking on the right most button <3>.

       The 3 modes are described below:

            On mode
            Clicking on the rightmost button <3> for the first time (after the
            start  of  WMTV) will turn the TV on. While in this mode, the left
            <1> and right <2> buttons change to preset channels which has been
            defined  in your config file. Use the left button to move down one
            channel and the right button to move up one channel.

            Tune mode
            Clicking again on button <3> after On mode will change  WMTV  into
            tune  mode.  Left-clicking  on  the  left  <1> or right <2> button
            performs a channel scan. Scanning stops when  there  is  a  strong
            signal  strength.  Right-clicking  on  the  left  <1> or right <2>
            button fine tunes the current channel. After tuning,  clicking  on
            button  <3>  saves  the fine tuning to your config file and brings
            you back into "On mode".

            Off mode
            Holding down button <3> for about 3 seconds from any  of  the  two
            modes described above turns the TV off.

       Right-clicking the TV screen mutes/unmutes the audio.

       Double  left-clicking  the TV screen launches the application specified
       with --exe. If --exe was not specified, then the  built-in  full-screen
       mode  is  used  instead.  Double middle-clicking will always invoke the
       built-in full screen mode.

FULL SCREEN MODE

       To exit full screen mode, click.

       Keyboard functions
         Up     - Change to next preset channel.
         Down   - Change to previous preset channel.
         Right  - Increase volume. (If supported by the v4l device.)
         Left   - Decrease volume. (If supported.)
         Escape - Leave full screen mode.
         m      - mute/unmute.

EXTERNAL APPLICATION

       It is possible to pass some  parameters  to  the  external  application
       through % codes:
         %% is replaced by a single %.
         %n is replaced by the name of the current channel.
         %# is replaced by the number of the current channel.
         %f is replaced by the current frequency in MHz.
       The behavior of other % codes is undefined and subject to change.

       Example: wmtv -e 'xawtv "%n"'
