One thing the manual does not tell you is that you don't actually use
input=television but input=number where number is the number from the
list mplayer prints like
0: Television: tuner audio tv camera (tuner:1, norm:0)
1: Composite1: audio camera (tuner:0, norm:0)
2: S-Video: audio camera (tuner:0, norm:0)
3: Composite3: audio camera (tuner:0, norm:0)
so here I'd use "mplayer -tv on:driver=v4l:input=0" .. not input=television
like the documentation suggests.
Also I noticed it seems to matter a great deal in which order you have the
options for -tv .. if you have them in the order the docs list them like
mplayer -tv on:noaudio:driver=v4l:input=0:outfmt=yv12:width=768:height=576:norm=PAL:channel=E12:chanlist=europe-west
here chanlist gets ignored for some reason and it just uses europe-east.
