Was mplayer built with dvb support? When building mplayer
the configure script needs to find the appropriate headers
before it will compile in dvb -- where to find them depends
on your linux distribution.

What happens if you start tzap like that and then
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > five.ts
... kill it after a while and then ls -l five.ts to see if
you got anything? If you did, you can use mencoder to
convert it to something else (or view the ts with mplayer).
