  Thank you very much. That solved the problem. I my random desperate
quest I tried the syntax you did, but the problem was the "on" option in
-tv. The error message seems to be a bit confusing, because it is more
the "on" option than the "-tv" one which is deprecated. Removing the
"on" and including the tv:// in any way works OK.

  Thanks a lot.
