i usually have better results with dd

i don't remember the exact command line but it should be something like :

dd id=/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 conv=noerror | mplayer -

but it's not perfect and also suffer buffer problem, i know you can set some buffer sizes with dd but i couldn't get something working flawlessly

try googling "dd dvr0 mplayer" you may find some more clues..
