This "just worked" for me using mplayer with a digital video broadcast
from my HVR-1600 with the cx18 driver (I'm in ATSC country):
$ scandvb -A 1 -v -a 0 /usr/share/dvb-apps/atsc/us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB \
$ cp channels.conf ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
$ mplayer dvb://WRC-1 -vf scale=960:540
The "scandvb" command name might be a rename by Fedora/Redhat of the
standard command name.
I had to use the '-vf scale=960:540' to display the 1080i content on my
1024 line display. Also note that mplayer sometimes wrongly decodes a52
audio (at least from ATSC streams) so it'll gripe every so often.
$ mplayer --help | head -1
