I initially messed with all those commands, then as Ben Jackson mentions 
above I found kaffeine-0.7CVS would do it all very simply ... the scan 
feature presents a list of stations found on the right hand side of the 
GUI so you can select whatever you need to appear on the left hand side 
and that's your permanent stations list. A nice feature would be to 
allow selecting all stations scanned for inclusion, but the extra mouse 
work only has to be done once.
Xawtv snapshots from dl.bytesex.org/cvs-snapshots/ configured with the 
following does a great job as does klear if looking for just a TV app, 
but kaffeine is the swiss army knife multimedia app.
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-alsa --enable-lirc --enable-zvbi 
--enable-mpeg2 --enable-dvb --enable-arts --enable-xfree-ext 
--enable-xvideo --enable-mmx --enable-dv --enable-quicktime
