This is a Wordnet issue, of course.  I have encountered similar issues
in looking for nautical terms in Wordnet.  The Wordnet corpus doesn't
contain many domain-specialized senses.  providing for specifying context
(more than one context?) might (will?) be necessary in the long run.

 . . .

I tried the above and find a very little useful association between eg:
-tv and television
-televison tube (or crt) and television (or tv)
-software and fortran

I was expecting better eg:
-vcr and tv to show as related electronic devices or appliances
-television tube to show as an electronic part of the television
-fortran to be under software
-tv an alternative name for television (other than in comments)

Maybe I was expecting too much?
