Fisrt run xawtv and select the channel and other settings you want.
Then close it and call xsanne (or any other frontend).

Some settings can be changed in XSane, but e.g. you can't change the

The dmc backend tries to access /dev/camera and I don't think it
expects to find a disc-like device. Better disable dmc in dll.conf. I
don't think it's realted to your other problems, however.
