The xawtv project started as TV application for Linux in the 90-ies.  Later on more apps and tools such as a teletext browser where added.  There are two major releases:

  • The 3.x versions.  They use the xaw (Athena) and Motif toolkit and handle analog TV only.
  • The 4.x development tree (no release so far).  It uses the gtk toolkit and supports digital TV (aka DVB) too.

I stopped maintaining xawtv a few years ago though.  Nowdays the xawtv git trees are hosted at  3.x is here and 4.x is there.
