Barry, thanks for your messge. You didn't say whether you tried what
I did with HVR4000+liplianindvb+szap2 (-p option). 

Before we talk about mplayer, does it actually work for you?

Yes, I know. People around here could learn a lot from the way mplayer
and ffmpeg each continue to check in significant and rapid improvements to a
single repository.

I regularly update mplayer from SVN and recompile too.  I have tried the following:

MPlayer dev-SVN-r27489-4.1.2  (today!): runs but video very slow and out of sync, audio ok.
MPlayer dev-SVN-r27341-4.1.2  (about 1 month old): crashes in <1s
MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.2.3 (ubuntu hardy): crashes in <1s
xine-lib 1.1.15, xine-ui 0.99.5 (latest): No video, but audio ok.

The log I showed was from Mplayer SVN 27341, but 27489 is similar: lots and lots of 
"number of reference frames exceeds max" errors.

And I have some sample TS files for Astra HD+ made with another card which all the
mplayers play perfectly so I know h264 is working.

So at this point I do not think the problem is mplayer.
