       -h     Usage

       -d device
              Select device. Default is /dev/video0

       -f frequency
              Set frequency (in Hz!).

       -t tuner
              Select tuner. Most of the time the default (0) suffices.

       -i inputchannel
              Select input channel. TV cards, for example,  sometimes  have  a
              tuner  and  a composite video input-channel. With this parameter
              you can select one. To get a list of input channels,  run  dov4l
              with the -q parameter.
