It looks like you include only the video and audio PID in the pesfilter.
This is not sufficient, you also need to include the PID that contains the description of the channels and codecs used, otherwise the result is not a valid TS stream.
You might get lucky and be able to play without that if you use -demuxer lavf, but that is not really a correct solution.
In general I'd suggest considering not enabling any pesfilter at all so that you can use MPlayer to select the desired program within the stream.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

From Reimar's analysis I conclude this is not an MPlayer bug, but the TS provided on /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 contains insufficient information.

Thus I am closing this ticket. Feel free to re-open if you think think mplayer is the culprit.
