Yes. See /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Fxtv, you can add channel names <-->
frequencies there. I got my set of frequencies from my cable provider's info
(I'm in Holland). They should have that info somewhere for their customers. I
think if you have such a config file for fxtv in your ~ directory it's called
just Fxtv or rcsh something like that (I remember installing NetBSD on
another slice about 3 months ago and using a shared home partition and it
immediately used the stations I had set up as well as the fonts/colors). See
the fxtv man page also.
Lately I've been using (k)mplayer for tv but I did use fxtv a lot before. I
don't have it installed at present though.
