That begs to ask, should we have to install a package (xawtv) we don't
normally use just for something that could easily be remedied with an
additional parameter?  I honestly don't see why this issue hasn't been
resolved yet.  Implementing a fix could be simple, short & sweet and can't
think of any good reason not to do it.  I've been told it's because most of
the coders are PAL and don't really care.  Hopefully that's just a rumor.
