[mythtv-users] scantv woes!

I've installed the xawtv package from atrpms and trying to use scantv to
scan TV channels. For some mad reason scantv is using "television" as
input and not "Tuner 0". How do I tell scantv to use "Tuner 0"? I've tried
creating a .xawtv file but no luck.

Finally I got fed up and edited the source to use "Tuner 0" as input but
it refuses to compile scantv.c even when I've installed zvbi library.

Is there an easy way to tell scantv to use "Tuner 0" as input?

I'm using PVR350.
