Expanding the term "dtv" to digital television and then translate
television into "seeing something somewhere which takes/took place
somewhere else" I can agree with the dtv-prefix.
Still I think the term TV is used by a lot of people with different
understandings. But except me nobody has seen the term dtv too
restrictive, so I'm joining the majority.
On thing I almost forgot: You should add a bandwidth-thing as an integer,
like the frequency/symbolrate.
For DVB-T we (DiBcom) can basicly run with any channel bandwidth, not only
5,6,7,8 MHz. And some people are even using it...
Another example: DVB-SH is mentioning explicitly a 1.7 MHz bandwidth in
the spec (default is 5MHz).
Please consider adapting it.
