Google shows me that apparently the DVB-T signal is using the
H.264 video codec, plus AC3 audio.  Apparently you're getting
an mp2 audio stream on PID 204 for TVP2, but your `dvbscan'
is failing to recognize the video stream as AVC and it shows
up above as `0'.

In the absence of the PID which includes the info about the
H.264 AVC video stream, `mplayer' defaults to the incorrect
MPEG2 video.  I have a hack which can override this (needed
for, say, ITV-HD at 28E, or other AVC streams recorded without
all the needed PIDs) but you would be better off to use the
correct PID for that service.

I'll guess an alternate mp2 audio seen above as PID 104

You'll either need to write a stream with PIDs 0, as well as
the PID for Service ID 2 (TVP2), which mplayer can parse and
detect the video as AVC, or, well, um, somehow mplayer needs
to be able to read PIDs 0 plus that for service ID 2 (or any
other service you wish to see).  No personal experience there
as none of my machines can come close to realtime playback, so
I always write to a file...
