I have seen that before with Mplayer. It was on a system at work that has 2
Xeons in it. I don't think this is a problem with your DVB, but rather 
Mplayer. I had a friend who knows a bit more about Mplayer come over and 
check it and he changed some of the parameters for Mplayer and it worked 
fine. I think he changed which display driver Mplayer used. Have you tried
Xine or VLC? Xine is pretty good for playing DVB.
