gnutv decrypts just fine (my provider also only sends encrypted channels).

When you say it's not playable, does that mean you get a black window when
you try to play it or does xine/mplayer refuse to play the file at all?

What is the output from gnutv when you execute it like above?

(If I record a stream using gnutv to a file without having working
encryption, I get a file which is properly recognised by xine as a MPEG
stream but which just produces a black window).
