I can occasionally make kaffiene work here, but it doesn't scan for active 
channels very well, nor can you expect it to change channels without either 
locking up, or going away but leaving background stuff running that you have 
to kill by hand before you can restart it.  It seems to be suffering from 
neglect and really should be replaced by something that works like tvtime 
used to.

tvtime used to Just Work(TM) but its ntsc only, and we have very few, mostly 
low power translators left that are broadcasting in Never Twice Same Color.
