Apparently /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 is a very sensitive "file" - when I 
directly open it using mplayer, or even cat, it won't output to anything 
else afterwards.

I'm using Faruk's solution to stream it like this:

dvbstream 8192 -i -r 1234

and then opening that stream with VLC - which works rather well (even if I have to always manually change the frequency using szap)

By the way, I scribbled down my notes in a small tutorial on how to get 
the "old drivers" working again (using an older revision made the scan 
tool work again!) If any other beginner needs any help it can be found here:
