I think this is greate.

Yesterday I played with kdetv.  It can scan the frequency and most of the time 
it also can find the name of the station.  This is a great feature that I mis 
in mythtv.  I don't know if it does any finetuning.

For finetuning, it would be handy if you can start livetv in some sort of 
debug mode and change the frequency on the fly with some commands.  So you 
can finetune the used frequency.

Any feedback from a developer if this idea can be implemented ?
