It looks to me like fxtv relies on the tuner's (or drivers') knowledge of
what acceptable channels are for the given locale, while xawtv/motv uses the
aforementioned frequency lists.

I'd have no problem using fxtv if I could figure out how to turn that ugly
toolbar off, or get dtv to work (i.e. change channels).
