mplayer has a very had time if there are any errors in mpeg TS streams.  If
your reception is 100% not perfect, it's difficult to watch with mplayer.

When it gets an error, mplayer somehow gets confused and starts playing the
video back slowly.  The audio and video get out of sync and you get that
error.  You can sometimes fix it by telling mplayer to do a short seek,
i.e. push the left arrow key.  When you do this there is a random chance
that mplayer will un-confuse itself and start playing ok again.
