I've managed to get a lock - well no problem there actually, but when I 
try to use mplayer I'm lost:

$ mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 (or mplayer -fs /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0)
MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.2.3 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team

15, Stepping: 6)
CPUflags:  MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
Compiled with runtime CPU detection.
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote 

Playing /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0.

So it says it's playing (the "could not connect to socket" is purely a 
lirc problem) but where's the video?
I also tried gmplayer, but that just locks up.

Thanks for the info, I'll be sure to give that a go this evening!
