The ~/.xawtv file should contain a global section telling it stuff like what frequency table to use; a defaults entry telling it what to use when it initially starts; and station entries. Using my .xawtv as an example:

[global]
ratio = 4:3
# Sets the default screen ratio
freqtab = europe-west
# Which frequency table to use?
pixsize = 128 x 96
# initial size of window to use
pixcols = 1
# number of columns the channel window should use
jpeg-quality = 75
# Sets the JPEG quality for when you're capturing. Percentage.
keypad-ntsc = no
# Use types numbers as channel numbers rather than stations programmed in
keypad-partial = yes
osd = yes
# On Screen Display.
osd-position = 30 , 20
# Position of OSD
use-wm-fullscreen = yes
# As Window Manager to use Full Screen mode

# [Station name]
# capture = overlay | grabdisplay | on | off
# input = Television | Composite1 | S-Video | ...
# norm = PAL | NTSC | SECAM | ...
# channel = #
# fine = # (-128..+127)
# key = keysym | modifier+keysym
# color = #
# bright = #
# hue = #
# contrast = #

[defaults]
group = main
norm = ntsc
input = composite1
capture = over
color = 50%
bright = 50%
hue = 50%
contrast = 53%

[BBC 1]
channel = 51
norm = ntsc
input = television
key = 1
capture = on

Most of the entries should be fairly self-evident. For more information, check out the man page for xawtvrc.
