tvtime is an analogue TV viewing application. It has a number of sophisticated deinterlacing algorithms, which make for some high quality output.

Unfortunately, since the last official release, version 1.02, in November 2005, development of tvtime has come to a halt. Having not kept in step with broader kernel developments, most Linux distributions choosing to include tvtime within their releases were stuck with having to independently provided their own patch solutions to the application.

In 2009, developers at kernal labs re-initiated some development of the app [1]. In 2011, similar as to the case of xawtv, an effort was made to provide a centralized development repository for tvtime on LinuxTV [2]. This can now be found in the {insert correct master LinuxTV hosted tvtime git tree when ready}. In time, it is hoped that Linux distributions will both submit changes to this version as well as utilize it as the one they package within their releases.
